Sharp AQUOS Spring 2007

Sharp on Tuesday released an almost unprecedented seventeen LCD TVs in anticipation of Spring. A full dozen of these occupy the company's AQUOS D line and are highlighted by the LC-32DS1 line (shown), one of the first-ever 32-inch LCDs with a 1080p screen for native playback of HD movies or the latest consoles. Design also takes center stage, according to Sharp: black, white, and a new red tint help match the sets to their chosen environments. These and the 720p LC-32DS10 sets will each have digital TV tuners, dual HDMI inputs, and a 2,000:1 static contrast ratio. Sharp hopes to deliver the D10 first, shipping it to Japan by March 10th along with similarly-equipped 26-inch and 20-inch models. The DS1 will appear on May 10th. Most if not all models are expected in North America.

Opposing the smaller sets is the RX1 line, built for home theater enthusiasts. Every model from the 65-inch LC-65RX1W to the 42-inch LC-42RX1W is both a 1080p set and also use a double-speed, 120Hz screen that cuts down on blur during fast movie scenes or gaming. The AQUOS R further boasts an improved 3,000:1 contrast ratio and a third HDMI input. Sharp will release 46-inch, 52-inch, and 65-inch models on March 10th and will follow them with the 42-inch and 57-inch models on April 16th. These too should be available in the US this year.
