Display technology leads to 35mm-thick screen

Sharp has announced it will be releasing its first 4K LCD display that takes advantage of its IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) technology. The PN-K321 is a 32-inch screen meant for design-related business use that can display images at a resolution of 3840x2160, while having a fairly slimline design measuring just 35mm (1.4 inches) thick.

It's able to achieve its thinness because of the IGZO panel's ability to offer more illumination through each individual pixel, which allows for both an increase in resolution while maintaining size, and a reduced light source in order to work. The PN-K321 also has built-in 2W speakers, an audio jack and pass-through cable, and both DisplayPort and HDMI connectivity.

A release date of February 15th has been set for within Japan, with an initial expected supply rate of around 1,500 screens per month for the 450,000 yen ($5,500) display. Details of a future global release for the screen have not been released.
