    Sharp's upcoming 45", £6,000 hi-def tv. The first lcd, (as far as I'm aware), to offer the max current res for hi-def tv of 1920 by 1080. Does anyone know when this out. + is anyone getting one? Should be perfect for future hi-def tv, and Blu-ray. :)

    Do you think? That's rrp. Not internet price. Panasonic's 42" plasma retails for near £5,000, but it's screen res is nowehere near 1920 by 1080p. Plus lcd tv's are always more expensive. It's expensive because it's the only lcd with full hi-def resolution. Prices will fall in time. Especially when more companies release tvs at this res. :)

    Can anyone confirm wheter or not this screen has either a HDMI or DVI(HDCP) connection on it, coz on all the spec's i've seen on UK pages it only states DVI-I :confused: :(

    Suppose i'll just have to wait for the 60' with UHDTV res, which i think is around 2400P :D :D

    Anyone know if the DVI port is HDCP compliant though? Shame if it ain't.

    I saw the 37 inch in John Lewis today and the picture looked very good to me. The paper today says £6500 for the 45in. Will prob be £4k by the spring.

    The 32" only has a 1366 by 768 res as well. If that looked good, 1920 by 1080 should look amazing as it will have twice the screen res of the 37" set. 2006 seems such a long way away, (when Blu-Ray might be released, and when sky's hi-def service starts).

    It's interesting that they state the number of dots, (6 million), rather than the number of pixels, (2 million). I assume that a pixel's made up of three dots, (red/blue/green)? :confused:

    Latest news from digitimes regarding large lcd panels and the future - http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20041006A5021.html

    Sharp introduces 65-inch LCD TV using panels from its 6G line; Taiwan panel makers not likely to follow suit

    Calvin Shao, Taipei; Carrie Yu, DigiTimes.com [Wednesday 6 October 2004]

    Sharp is currently exhibiting a 65-inch LCD TV at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) show in Japan, and the company claims the product is the world’s largest LCD TV. Although Sharp said it will volume produce 65-inch panels at its sixth-generation (6G) plant in mid-2005, most Taiwan-based panel makers remain conservative about producing panels for LCD TVs of this size and do not plan to follow suit in the near future.

    According to Sharp, the 65-inch LCD TVs will use panels from its 6G plant and will have a 1,920×1,080 resolution. Sharp’s plant was the world’s first 6G plant to enter volume production, having started from January of this year.

    Most Taiwan makers, including AU Optronics (AUO), Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO) and Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT), expressed concern that LCD TVs larger than 40 inches are still not as cost-competitive as PDP (plasma display panel) TVs, and they do not plan to produce panels of over 60 inches in size when their 6G plants begin operation.

    AUO said it is too early to invest heavily in production of over-60-inch panels, and it would wait for demand to pick up.

    Also, CMO vice president Wu Biing-Seng said that the company is not planning to manufacture over-50-inch panels at its 5.5G plant, mainly because the production costs are relatively high. LCD TVs are still not as cost-competitive as PDP TVs in the 50-inch segment, he indicated.

    C.C. Liu, sales and marketing vice president of CPT, pointed out that Sharp chose to highlight a 65-inch model at the show merely to demonstrate its technology capabilities. A relatively small proportion of consumers will buy LCD TVs at a size over 60 inches, he said. CPT’s 6G line will focus on producing 26-, 32- and 37-inch LCD TV panels, and the company has not yet planned to produce larger panels since market demand for displays in the larger-size segment remains to be seen, Liu explained.

    Currently, Samsung’s 46-inch LCD TV is the largest LCD TV being sold in the sales channel, although LG Electronics (LGE) recently unveiled a 55-inch model. AUO also began test producing 46-inch LCD TV panels for BenQ in the second quarter of this year, and BenQ will begin marketing the product by year-end. Sharp released a 45-inch LCD TV in Japan this August and plans to sell the product to Europe and China this November and December, respectively, with assembly to be done in the local markets, according to a September 7

    This is not the exact model but I think it is the same panel. Check this out:

    'High-efficiency LCD drivers using Quick Shoot (QS) technology reproduce clean, clear pictures which are easy to view. They reduce the sense of visual lag in images depicting high-speed motion with quick, snappy response (12 msec for 45" G-Series models; 16 msec for other G-Series models).'

    Good news from Toshiba & Matsu****a (Panasonic) ;D

    http://www.tomshardware.com/hardnews/20041012_061715.html

    TMD (Toshiba Matsu****a Display) is now developing 23- and 32-inch LCD panels with a 5-ms latency time! The panels are expected to be on the market by the end of the year. The announced angle of vision (160/160) makes the panels good candidates for multimedia applications - which is the goal of the operation, since TMD intends to market the panels to Nanao, among others, for its LCD televisions.

    The low resolutions announced (1280x768 for the 23-inch and 1366x768 for the 32-inch), however, don't make the displays all that attractive to PC users.


    the question now is when these panels are out. My guess is at earliest Q3/05.

    LCD is really catching up quickly with plasma's.
