Sharp shows 'world's first' 1080p 22in LCD TV

Security for virtualized datacentres

Sharp has launched a pair of small-size LCD TVs that it claimed are the first of their kind to support 1080p 'full HD' resolution.

Three screens are included in the roll-out, all of which will go on sale under Sharp's Aquos brand, part of the P series. In addition to the 22in and 26in models - they're the market leading models - the line-up also includes a 32in 1080p screen.

Sharp's Aquos P series: world's first 1080p 22in LCD TV?

All three have a viewing angle of 176° and a brightness of 400cd/m². They have contrast ratios of 1200:1 (22in), 1500:1 (26in) and 2000:1 (32in).

Initially pitched at the Japanese market, the TVs incorporate digital TV tuners with a picture-in-picture capability. They also feature a pair of HDMI ports, Japanese S2 and D5 video inputs, a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port, and a phone line link.

Sharp also claimed the TVs were PC friendly - all of them come with DVI-D and VGA ports.

Sharp is leaving the pricing to Japanese retailers, so there's no guide to how much the three screens will cost if they make it over here.
