Sharp's new LCD HDTVs

Sharp on Thursday announced the upcoming release of a pair of its newest AQUOS LCD HDTVs, the 20-inch LC-20E5 and 16-inch LC-16E5. Both are capable of displaying 720p (1366x768 resolution) images and feature two HDMI connections for HD sources such as Blu-ray players. While a digital TV tuner is built in, the TVs can double as computer monitors thanks to their necked stands that allow them to swivel from side to side.

The new AQUOS LCDs feature a contrast ratio of 1,200:1, brightness of 450cd/mē and a horizontal viewing angle of 176 degrees. Traditional RGB video, as well as S-video and component plugs are also part of the HDTVs' connections. A network jack and RS-232C input are also included, and the TV remotes can also control a connected Sharp Blu-ray player through CEC support.

Thanks to sensors that adjust brightness and conserve energy, the LC-20E5 and LC16E5 are rated to use up just 61kWh and 48kWh, respectively, of energy per year.

When the TVs are released in Japan on September 10, the LC-20E5 will list for an equivalent of around $870, while the LC-16E5 will be priced at nearly $780. The LC-16E5 is available in a black or beige surround. A US release has not been announced, although Sharp regularly releases its smaller AQUOS sets in the country. [via Impress]
