Sharp looks to nature for display inspiration in new AQUOS XL series

Sharp has taken the covers of its new AQUOS Quattron 3D XL TV series. In addition to featuring Sharp's Quattro four primary color technology that includes a yellow sub-pixel, the new TVs incorporate a new technology Sharp is calling 'Moth-Eye.' This is said to significantly reduce glare by cutting light scattering as well as internal reflection.

The 'Moth-Eye' tech works by placing a special layer above the LCD panel, modeled after the way moth's eyes are constructed in nature. Reflectivity is reduced to just 0.1 percent, while the panels also support viewing angles up to 176-degrees. The contrast ration is a high 10 million to 1, helping to ensure deeper blacks, while the 'Moth-Eye' tech also helps to boost color vividness, according to Sharp.

The new AQUOS Quattron 3D XL TVs come in a range of sizes starting at 46-inches and ranging through to an oversize 80-inch model. In between, the company is also offering panels in 52-, 60- and 70-inch variants. The 60- and 70-inch models will debut in Japan first at the end of November, while the rest of the lineup will hit the Japanese market just in time for Christmas with pricing to be announced.

Expect to see some or all of the new Sharp AQUOS Quattron 3D XL TV series heading stateside by the second quarter of 2013. [via AV Watch]
