Posted by at 9:58 am on September 4, 2008

For the first time in the U.S, Sharp  unveils the newest members of their Aquos  Limited Edition Series.  The Limited Edition LCD TV Series, available in 65- (LC-65XS1U-S) and 52-inch (LC-52XS1U-S) screen class sizes (64 33/64″ and 52 1/32″ diagonals respectively), utilizes a newly-developed 10-bit Advanced Super View (ASV) LCD panel that enables an extremely sli

m profile of only one inch at its thinnest part, to achieve unmatched design and picture quality.  

The Limited Edition series also includes Sharp’s AQUOS Net capability, a service that is able to give users instant access to customized Web-based content as well as real-time customer support.  

“Since the introduction of the first AQUOS LCD TV in 2001, Sharp has continuously achieved the highest levels of image quality and screen size,” said Bob Scag

lione, senior vice president and group manager, Product and Marketing Group, Sharp. “With the introduction of the new flagship Limited Edition Series, we offer consumers a new audio-visual lifestyle, with a superior picture in large screen sizes, as well as excellent sound quality, a striking design and environmental performance befitting a truly `next generation’ LCD TV.”  

Sound and Vision

Sharp joined with Pioneer to develop a thin-desig

n speaker system that combines with Sharp’s unique 1-bit digital amplif

ier for more natural sound.

Using the latest version of Sharp’s proprietary 10-bit Advanced Super View LCD panel, this next-generation series incorporates a new RGB-LED backlight system for an unprecedented 150 percent NTSC color gamut and extremely high Dynamic Contrast Ratio of more than

 1,000,000:1 for extremely deep blacks at the 1080P.

Thin and Neat

Limited Edition Series has a separate AVC system set-top box for all input terminals, which can be connected to the screen via the included HDMI cable o

r with an optional wireless connection to eliminate cable clutter. This also aids the series in having  depth of only one inch at its thinnest part.  Additionally, the units include five HDMI inputs as well as dual HD component terminals, all of which are compatible with 1080p signals. For the ultimate in convenience, one HDMI and one component terminal are located on the front of the AVC system, enabling easy conn

ections. An RS-232C port for custom installations and a dedicated PC input are also included. But why isn’t Sharp using  Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI) with these sets?

Sharp has incorporated

 an energy-saving technology into the Limited Edition LCD TVs by equipping them with a new system designed to lower power consumption during use by adjusting the screen brightness based on the level of brightness in the room.
