• Sharp launches the ‘world’s largest’ 8K display

        • Sharp has announced the availability of a new 120” 8K UV²A LCD electronic display for professional use - the 8M-B120C. The new large-format display is the largest 8K monitor available on the market, specifically designed to convey unparalleled lifelike image detail and quality, ideally suited for professional environments that need high levels of visual clarity and precision.

          The 8M-B120C is equipped with a 4m² LCD panel, using 33 million pixels that achieve resolution four times more than 4K Ultra HD and 16 times the resolution of Full HD. The display reproduces images at a higher resolution than the human eye can capture, delivering benefits to a number of businesses that rely on high levels of detail and accuracy, in sectors including broadcast, design and medicine, and high-pressure data-intensive environments such as air traffic control and trading floors.

          The 8K display delivers on picture quality and enhanced colour accuracy thanks to a wide colour-gamut and optimised LED backlight. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) further improves the depth of the image by increasing the contrast and colour range creating a more saturated and natural image. The display delivers a brightness of 600 cd/m² and up to 1000 cd/m² at peak levels working in tandem with local dimming of up to 2048 zones, delivering a high level of contrast.

          To smoothly handle video, the 8M-B120C uses a frame doubler, with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, or up to 120 images per second, twice the speed of most modern displays (60Hz). This reduces motion blur during fast movements, making action scenes appear more realistic. 

          Four HDMI2.0a 4K ports allow for the seamless input of 8K signal or a 2x2 split screen. The inclusion of one HDMI2.1 port allows users to connect devices with a single cable and a bandwidth of up to 48 Gbit/s.

          Peter Heins, Senior Product Manager said, “the latest addition to Sharp’s 8K ecosystem delivers our best-in-class 8K technology in the largest display ever introduced to the market. We are excited to continue to develop our 8K ecosystem to further support businesses that require ultimate image precision and clarity.”    

          The new model is available to buy now from Sharp and its partners.
