Sharp Japan Unveils the Aquos LCD TVs

13, 15, and 20V-Inch*1 Models With ASV*2 LCD Have High-Quality 2.1-Channel Sound System and Built-in BS Analog Tuner. Perfect for Watching Movies, AQUOS is the Ideal Family/Personal TV for the 21st Century.

Sharp Corporation announces the introduction into the Japanese market of the fourth series of AQUOS LCD TVs. The three models 20V-inch LC-20C3, 15V-inch LC-15C3, and 13V-inch LC-13C3 allow users to enjoy various video sources including DVD movies and music and BS (broadcast satellite) television with superb, powerful sound.

All three models use an ASV low-reflective black TFT LCD, giving clear, high-contrast images from almost any angle. Users get clear, vivid images even in bright settings like sunlit rooms and display areas in retail stores.

The new AQUOS TVs also have a 2.1-channel sound system that, together with Sharp’s proprietary ultra-low bass frequency woofer, makes users feel like they’re right in the middle of the action when watching movies, sports events, and music concerts. And the built-in BS analog tuner means more channels and thus more ways to enjoy TV.

These LCD TVs were designed by internationally renowned industrial designer Toshiyuki Kita. The AQUOS’s greatest advantages are its thinness, small footprint, and light weight, which give users the freedom to enjoy the viewing style of their choice. Users can carry the unit from room to room with the built-in carrying handle. With the choice of hanging the TV on the wall, attaching it to the ceiling, or placing it on a floor stand, users have the option of being entertained anywhere in the home. And LCD offers environmentally friendliness like low energy and resource consumption and long life, as well as viewing that’s easy on the eyes. All this adds up to a TV far superior to conventional CRTs.

Sharp presents the new C3 AQUOS line-up as a 21st century style of home entertainment for both families and individuals.

*1 “V-inch” (for example, “20V-inch”) is a measure of the true size of the flat TV screen, standardizing on the length of the diagonal dimension of the actual viewing area. [Note that the "inch" measurement as used for conventional CRT-based TV picture tubes (for example, "21-inch") does not refer to the diagonal dimension of the screen which is actually viewable, but rather to the corner-to-corner dimension of the outside diameter of the picture tube (CRT)].

*2 ASV = “Advanced Super View.” Refers to a new LCD architecture that provides a wide viewing angle of 170 vertical/horizontal in all directions.

*3 VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) is a worldwide standards setting organization for computer displays and graphics.
