Sharp's UD-1 4K TV
I'm Ty Pendlebury from CNET.com, and I'm here with the new Sharp UD-1 4K television.
This is the Sharp's first 4K television on the market.
Obviously, 4K is the new buzzword, essentially what it is 4 times the resolution of 1080p so you're getting 3840x2160 pixels, not much content to cover that at the moment.
So what we're really looking at is an up-scaling television which can accepts
1080p and some 4K content at the moment.
They have their own revelation 4K up-scale, which they say, looks better than most competitors.
What we have is a Smart TV Suite as well.
The television comes with most of the features you'll see on the other Sharp televisions including a Smart Central Smart TV Suite, with a dual-core processor.
Also, this is an edge-lit television with no local dimming unfortunately.
It's not Quattron.
It's standard LCD and also it comes
with a 240 Hz processing engine.
The design is new, it has a new stand for the television as well as front-mounted speakers and 2 sub-woofers at the back with a 35 watts sound system.
What we're looking here is a very thin bezel, which is made of aluminum and it gives a very stylish look two tone, of course, which Sharp has done for a few years.
This television is now available on the market.
If you're looking at about $7,500, but you can see it from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy
for around 6 at the moment.
We're gonna try and get our hands on this TV as soon as possible so check out cnet.com for updates on the Sharp UD-1 television.
