Sharp launching 3D AQUOS series in Japan this July
On July 30th in Japan, Sharp will be releasing its first 3D HDTVs dubbed the AQUOS LV series. To be available in 40-, 46-, 52- and 60-inch display sizes, the 3D AQUOS models will feature Sharp's quad-pixel Quattron technology, 1080p resolution and a new proprietary technology called FRED supposedly able to increase brightness and reduce crosstalk. The sets will ship with AN-3DG10 3D glasses that have the capability to also switch to a 2D viewing mode. The LV series will also be compatible with Sharp's new BD-HDW700 and BD-HDW70 Blu-ray DVRs which will be capable of recording two TV program simultaneously and feature terabyte hard drives. No official word on pricing yet, but Japanese publication Impress Watch believes the 40-inch set will initially price at a little over US$3, 000 while the 60-incher will be a pricey, slightly-north-of $6, 500.
