ICC Purios has 60-inch display, multi-channel recording

Sharp is joining the 4K race with its own Ultra High-Definition television. The "Integrated Cognitive Creation" (ICC) Purios joins the ranks of LG and Sony in putting a 4K screen on the market, and although the 60-inch display doesn't match its 84-inch competitors, Sharp does boast it to be the first 4K TV to be released with a THX-certification.

Capable of displaying an image at a resolution of 3x840x2,160, the ICC Purios has four HDMI inputs, two USB ports, Wi-Fi support, and an Ethernet connection. Its speaker system is rated at 35 Watts, and also has a headphone jack, while the multiple tuners allow the display to support simultaneous recording of two programs when used with an external USB hard drive.

Initially set for release in Japan on February 20th, the ICC Purios, also known as the LC-60HQ10, will cost 2.6 million yen ($31,000). A global release is currently unknown, but more details may become available during CES in January.
