• Sharp showcases new product roadmap at ISE

        • Today (7th February) marks the start of this year’s Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), where Sharp will be showing its transformed product line-up. The new line-up includes six new product categories, the launch of a new digital signage solution platform, the Sharp Open Architecture Platform, and an OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) format designed with Intel.

          Hardware highlights include a 70” video wall display, the ‘largest commercially available’, the company’s first interactive display for huddle spaces and an interactive display range with direct bonding technology. Also on stand, Sharp is showing an R&D sample of a semi-transparent Field Sequential Display (FSD) prototype.

          Sid Stanley, General Manager, Visual Solutions said, “to be considered a significant vendor, we know that we need to earn market share with a broad and comprehensive product range. This is why we are investing in some mainstream areas like signage, but also in innovative and new solutions like large form factor video walls and huddle displays. Thanks to the partnership with Foxconn, we are now better positioned to do this and to offer a different choice to the market, giving resellers and integrators another vendor partnership option.”

          Interactive displays for the boardroom and classroom

          • New 70” and 80” BIG PAD displays (PN-70SC5 and PN-80SC5)
          • First 40-inch BIG PAD interactive display for small, huddle meetings and interactive signage applications, the PN-40TC1 40’

          New Digital signage portfolio with new hardware, software and partnerships with third party software providers

          • Next generation of its PN-R and PN-U range of displays, the PN-Y range of ‘plug and play’ displays with an embedded USB media player
          •  PN-Q, designed for meeting rooms and other commercial signage applications, available from 60” to 90”.

          Video wall

          • Sharp will launch a new 70” model, which is the ‘world’s largest’ commercially available video wall display. The PN-V701 uses Sharp’s UV2A technology and Advanced UCCT (Uniform Colour Calibration Technology)

          Future-gazing technology

          Sharp will show a semi-transparent 17-inch Field Sequential Display panel on its stand. This is a prototype device being developed in Japan that has the potential to be used in a wide range of applications, from digital signage to entertainment devices. This highly power-efficient technology is entirely different to other displays available today as it uses a high frequency sequential RGBW colouring system.
