Sharp will use this coming weekend’s IFA show in Berlin to showcase the world’s largest-ever LCD unit, a 120” screen.
The display is part of Sharp’s 8K+5G ecosystem. IFA2019 visitors will see Sharp propose an evolution of its industry-leading 8K+5G Ecosystem that takes advantage of the possibilities offered by the massive high-speed data transfer capacity of 5G mobile technology. As well as the launch of a 5G service to support the data requirements of 8K UHD imaging, the comprehensive framework promises to transform consumers’ lives in a variety of fields, from video production and transmission, to medical and educational applications.
“Since our launch of the world’s first-ever 8K display back in 2011, Sharp has continued to develop 8K products in the BtoC realm, but thanks to advances in communication and imaging technology, we are now also able to offer fresh value in the field of BtoB,” said Kazuhiro Kitamura, Business Unit President, Global TV Systems BU and Head of Europe Business. “Currently, we are partnering with other companies to run verification tests in various fields. By working in tandem with other firms’ technology, rather than promoting our own 8K offerings in isolation, we are able to foster breakthroughs and nurture 8K+5G Ecosystem across an ever-wider range of disciplines. The more partners we can bring on board with groundbreaking technological advances of their own, the more we can achieve together to enrich society and people’s lives.”
