Take a look at this beauty! Sharp in collaboration with NHK (Japan’s national public broadcasting organization) unveiled the world’s first Ultra High Definition-capable LCD display.

This 85″ LCD display has a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels, which is equivalent to 16 times the resolution of HDTV, allowing for the display of incredibly detailed, high-quality images. The display supports 10-bit colour depth for each channel as well as refresh rate of 60Hz.

In the past the only way to show the Ultra High Definition broadcast at full resolution was using a projector, but due to Sharp’s UV2A LCD technology, which allows for an unprecedented level of precision when controlling the alignment of liquid crystal molecules in an LCD structure, Sharp have been able to create a flawless 33megapixel display.

NHK are working to begin trial broadcasts of this next generation broadcast format in the year 2020, reports DigiInfo.
