Sharp unveils first THX-certified LCD sets

Sharp AQUOS T Series

Sharp on Friday distinguished its TVs from the rest by releasing the AQUOS T, a new extra-large series of direct-view LCDs that become the first to receive the THX blessing for theater-like image quality under certain conditions. Setting a THX Movie Mode optimizes the brightness and gamma levels for a darkened room; contrast ratios are lower at 2,500:1 for the 52-inch and 65-inch models than for their equivalents in the AQUOS R series (which reach 3,000:1) as the settings are better-suited to low light, Sharp claims.

Either screen provides Sharp's best 120Hz panel for fast movement, three HDMI inputs, single Ethernet and dual FireWire connections for data and camera displays, and DVI input for computer sources. Audio is strong for an integrated set with a combined 15W in satellites backed by a 15W subwoofer. Japan will receive the sets initially on September 1st at $6,881 for the 52-inch model and a premium $11,551 for the 65-inch version. US versions are possible in following months. [via Impress]
