This month, volume production will begin of a revolutionary new technology that is the brainchild of Sharp - a new LCD that can simultaneously display different information and image content in right and left views on the same screen. It will now be possible to provide information and content tailored to specific users depending on the angle at which they view the screen. Visual content can be tailored to multiple users with ease.

For example, one user can view the display as a PC screen for browsing the Internet or for editing video shot using a digital camera (IT) while at the same time another user watches video content such as a movie or a TV broadcast (A/V). This ability to enjoy two functions in a single unit in full-screen size will contribute to achieving a full-fledged convergence of digital home electronics A/V and IT.
