But Sharp’s best television at CES 2015 is more than a mere manifestation of marketing jibber-jabber, it’s a genuine effort at pushing 4K resolution to meet its utmost potential, and Sharp believes it is just the company to do it. By using a proprietary “pixel-splitting” technology, Sharp is able to push 4K resolution to yield even finer detail, making even the tiniest text legible from up close. Is it a practical application? Perhaps when seated at close proximity to display sizes 80-inches and greater, but this TV isn’t just about resolution.
Using a special LED backlight that’s been coated with red and green phosphors, the Beyond 4K TV produces a purer white backlight, which allows the TV to produce a wider array of colors. Sharp talks some big numbers when it comes to this TV’s color capabilities … as in “more than 100 percent of DCI color space.” Them’s fightin’ words for videophiles.
At the end of the day, it is the practical application of these technologies that matters most: sucking you in and mesmerizing you for hours on end. We think Sharp’s Beyond 4K TV can certainly do that.
