    I believe that Samsung have also got a 46" LCD (LTP468W) with native 1920x1080 :smashin:

    Actually I think Samsung have had a 57" LCD with native 1920x1080 in production for a while now :thumbsup:

    The only thing more astonishing than the specs will be the price. :eek:

    Give it 2 or 3 more years and the prices will be down to "consumer" levels. Yes it almost certainly will kill off plasma - but then that's been expected for a while. However its the CRT that will go first.

    Now - the industry just has to agree on a common Hi-Def DVD standard.

    I think the price for the Sharp model in Japan equates to around £5k.
    Not too bad at all really, IMO :)

    Have you guys noticed the weight, only 7.2kg!!! so cool!!!

    It will be interesting in 2-3 years time when the prices are comparable with plasmas and at the same time the technology is hopefully on par, the tests will be very interesting then ;D

    Hm, industry agreeing a hi-def standard, well Japan is already developing a superior hi-def standard for their broadcasting l- 16times the resolution of current hi-def!!! - http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/shownews.php?id=6640

    So they are looking at 7680 x 4320? Wow - this must be approaching the resolution that film makers work too for the big screen. One wonders if the human eye will be able to tell on a 42" screen, 8ft away over a screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution.

    I'm not sure if the eye can see it, but I'll bet the bank manager can! That 5k for the sharp is probably like the 7kg weight, just the media box.

    Surely this cannot be 5K, that would be too cool.

    Perfect HCPC display.

    Oh great, and I was set on getting a plasma! Now what do I do? Buy a plasma and wait for it to become old news in 2 years time?

    Actually, most digital 35mm feature film work is done at 2048x1556. Sometimes 4096x3112, but not often. I don't remember the IMAX scan resolution off the top of my head, but I think it's around the 6000x4000 mark

    While I agree that this Sharp is a very impressive machine on paper the most impressive machine will be the high quality 42-inch Plasma/LCD that breaks the £1000 mark, less pushing more cutting I say. :cool:

    I think a 'quality' plasma/lcd that can be had for sub 1k will be quite a few years from now :rolleyes:

    I did know a guy some years ago who works in professional video production and he told me that all the effects on Lord Of The Rings was done at a resolution of approx 4000 horizontally - so 4096 sounds right to me.

    There just doesnt seem any point for a display device going beyond this. They would do better working on response times, black levels, contract ratio and brightness etc etc.

    As to buying something now. I've just bought a SD Panny 6 knowing full well that I'll be wanting to upgrade to something with a far higher resolution in approx 3 years time when Hi-Def DVD and Hi-Def broadcasts happen. Being on a tightish budget I couldn't justify to myself doing anything different - but this is a very personal decision.

    Surely there must be a reason why people aren't raving about this in the HCPC section.

    Yes, the reason is it's not available for another month at least, according to sharp, and they wouldn't release pricing to me either. 'confidential until product release'. Maybe Hornydragon has a better contact than me? He's big on Sharp, I'm lucky to sell 5 in a month. But the spec is all true, and it is being brought in. I think they are taking a punt on the price, anyone care to place a bet? Will it be way low, and can you get them to take the money and have a contract to supply?
