AQUOS Super Bright UV2A Panel: The AQUOS edge-lit LED-LCD TV uses a
new high-brightness panel combined with an intelligent contrast engine which
constantly analyzes the signal and enhances the brightness of the bright objects
on the screen, while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the screen.
This high-contrast panel lets more light through in bright scenes and fights
light leakage in dark scenes, providing a 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The LCD
panel also employs AQUOS UV2A technology which uses a unique, precision pixel
structure to deliver dynamic HD images.
Quattron Color Technology: Quattron Color Technology enables the display to
reproduce colors that have been difficult to portray using conventional LCD
displays. Sharp's proprietary Quattron Color Technology, a 4-color filter that adds
yellow to the traditional RGB, enables a vast array of colors to be displayed.
The four-primary-color display employs a four color filter for the first time in
the industry, that adds the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (Red), G
(Green) and B (Blue). This combination expands the color gamut; faithfully
rendering nearly all colors that can be discerned with the unaided human eye.
240Hz Refresh Rate + AquoMotion 960: A 240Hz refresh rate
