Sharp to release world's largest LCD TV

By Derek Sooman on
The world's largest liquid crystal display television set is on its way, thanks to Sharp Corp., who announced the new LC-65GE1 on Friday. The new TV set boasts a staggering 65-inch screen.

"[The LC-65GE1 will enable] users to enjoy beautiful, life-like, high-definition images on an impressively large screen that far surpasses other video systems, regardless of the brightness of the room" Sharp said.

The LC-65GE1 is just what the doctor ordered for watching the forthcoming Blu-Ray format disks or HD DVD, which will display movies in super high-definition. Just imagine playing an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 game on this baby! Wow.

The new Aquos model will be made available at a suggested retail price of 1.68 million yen, comparable with prices of plasma-panel TVs of the same size. Sharp will produce the LC-65GE1 at a monthly rate of 300 units at its factory in Kameyama, Mie Prefecture. Plasma TVs have so far led the market for big-screen TVs.

The LC-65GE1 is designed with full attention to environmental considerations: power consumption is only 619 W, which is less than PDP televisions of the same 65V-inch class, and it uses materials well suited to recycling. Also, the ability to mount the LC-65GE1 on a wall even with its large screen size allows user to fully enjoy the LCD TV experience in a diverse range of living spaces.
