    SHARP® INTRODUCES THE LARGEST TV ON THE PLANET



    The Incredible 90” Class Sharp AQUOS® LED TV is Available Now

    MAHWAH, NJ (June 19, 2012) - Imagine yourself standing at the precipice of the Grand Canyon. It’s 3,000 feet straight down. The wind howls in your ears. Your heart races as you leap forward and plummet toward the bottom. Just before you plunge into the river below…you spill the popcorn all over the living room couch. That’s the experience you’ll get when watching the breathtaking 90” (diagonal) AQUOS LED TV (model LC-90LE745U), introduced today by Sharp.

    Standing majestically at nearly 4 feet tall and spanning 6 feet and 8 inches wide, the 90” AQUOS is the world’s largest LED TV. Its picture quality is as stunning as its size, displaying crisp and clear content at the highest HD resolution available of 1080p. Sit as close as you like, and see colors pop and never before seen details become visible. Sports and action sequences are as big as life.

    Despite its size, the TV is thin and light. Weighing only 141 lbs (without stand) and at less than 5 inches deep, it’s easy to mount on a wall. And with LED technology it’s so energy efficient; it uses less energy than two 75-watt light bulbs and averages only $28 per year to operate.

    The 90” class AQUOS features Sharp’s proprietary SmartCentral, offering direct access to the most popular apps and video on demand from services like Netflix®, YouTube, CinemaNow®, Hulu Plus and VUDU™. It also has web browsing and Skype* capability and built-in Wi-Fi.**

    “Our 90” class LED smart TV offers size, picture quality and smart functionality unlike anything consumers have experienced with LED TVs to-date,” said John Herrington, president, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America. “You can now experience Sharp AQUOS like never before.”

    Sharp’s new 90” class LED TV is a full HD active 3DTV and two 3D glasses are included. It is also equipped with AquoMotion 240, to make fast-action motions seamless, without blurring – a great feature when watching action movies or sports which feature lots of quick camera movements.

    Like all new Wi-Fi enabled Sharp TVs, the LC-90LE745U features AQUOS Advantage LIVEa free service for owners which connects them directly over the Internet to trained customer support representatives. These advisors can remotely assist with set-up and settings management directly over the Internet and phone, offering an “in-home” technician to help problem solve any question or issue.

    The LC-90LE745U is available now at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $10,999.99 (US).

    Are these monster TVs going to drive down projector prices? Even demolish the projector market? I'm already seeing corporate conference rooms setup with 50" and larger flat panels instead of projectors.
    Has anyone run the numbers to estimate when we'll see 100" TVs for $3000?
    With a two year horizon in my 100" display upgrade, I'm now having reason to second guess a projector plan.

    This will have no effect on projector prices. Very few people can afford to buy a TV like that. When a 100" + flat screen TV sells for $1,500 or less, you let me know.

    I guess they've never heard of the 92-inch Mitsubishi DLP for $2808...

    And the DLP probably looks better too.

    I love how they call 141 pounds "light".
