Sharp Aquos X-Series Gets Wireless With Amimon
Sharp's new Aquos X-Series ultra-thin LCD TV's will offer a wireless WHDI link from Amimon that'll allow uncompressed streaming of high-def content from an external tuner unit straight to the Aquos without the use of any cables whatsoever. WHDI technology uses a video-modem to stream HD content up to 100 feet, with the ability to stream through walls and according to Amimon, resulting in video quality equal to that of HDMI.
The Sharp Aquos X-Series will be made up of three models--the 37-inch LC-37XJ1-B, 42-inch LC-42XJ1-B, and the 46-inch LC-46XJ1-B. 3.44 cm thick at the thinnest point, the X-Series' models achieve their remarkable thinness thanks to the external tuner unit and wireless connection. All three units use an active-matrix drive system, feature 1080p resolution, 15000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, wide viewing angle, fluorescent tube backlight, 8 speakers and all the usual inputs and outputs. We'll be waiting for this in North America for a while I'm sure, but it should be available in Japan now, priced at ¥350,000 ($3,290) for the LC-37XJ1-B, ¥430,000 ($4,050) for the LC-42XJ1-B, and ¥480,000 ($4,510) for the big LC-46XJ1-B.
