LED screen measures 20-inches, supports stylus input

Shortly after its announcement to sell a 4K IGZO monitor in February, Sharp is also preparing to release a 20-inch touchscreen display in Japan. The LL-S201A, branded "Big Pad" by the manufacturer, supports up to ten points of multi-touch input, as well as a stylus with a 2mm tip for more precise work.

The Big Pad can be placed upright as a standard monitor, or laid down on a desk to improve comfort when touching the screen, reports Engadget. Capable of showing a 1920x1080 resolution image, the Big Pad has a contrast ratio of 3000:1, and can take video signal from its HDMI and DisplayPort, and can also use Mobile High-Definition Link to display from a smartphone. Supporting documentation for the display mentions a response time of 5ms, while a USB connection will provide the computer with the touch input data.

Sharp will put the Big Pad on sale in Japan from January 30th, and hopes to manufacture 4,000 displays per month. Details of a release to other markets have yet to be revealed.
