85″ Super High Vision Television from Sharp

What is better than 1080p? well thanks to the new developments in Japan’s NHK we now have a television showing at an amazing 7680 x 4320 pixel resolution of HDTV. The prototype was unveiled today by Sharp, it’s 103 pixels per inch is not that much but that’s still almost three times more than 36ppi of a 60-inch 1080p HDTV.

The television should be done and ready for purchase around 2020, which is going to be bad since our world will end on 2012 or tomorrow May 19, 2011 by some believers.

The specs are actually very nice for this television, for an “undisclosed” amount, you get:
Super Hi-Vision-Compatible LCD
Screen size 85 inches (approx. 1.9 x 1.05 m)
Pixel count 7,680 (H) x 4,320 (V) pixels
Brightness 300 cd/m2
Gradation 10 bits for each RGB color
*1 As of May 19, 2011, for direct-view displays compatible with Super Hi-Vision.
*2 UV2A: Ultraviolet induced multi-domain Vertical Alignment. A photo-alignment technology for precisely controlling the alignment of liquid crystal molecules in a simple LCD panel structure.

This LCD will be shown to the public at NHK’s Science & Technology Research Laboratories in Tokyo from May 26 to 29, 2011 so if you want to see how it looks in person, you need to start coughing up your money and get your self a plane ticket ASAP. in the mean time, I’m going to go back to watching Netflix on my Droid.
