Get High-Def Programming

The 32" screen size is replacing 27" screens as the minimum size for people who want a high-impact experience viewing a wide range of material, including DVD movies. If you're looking for a high-definition flat-panel TV with a picture that's bright enough to stand up to room lights or daylight, Sharp's LC-32D50U has you covered. The built-in tuner pulls in over-the-air HDTV programming without the need for a separate tuner box.

When Sharp introduced the AQUOS line several years ago, it made people take LCD TVs seriously for the first time. Since then, a steady stream of innovations has kept AQUOS TVs at the forefront of LCD design. Sharp's latest breakthrough is Multi-Pixel technology: each pixel is divided into two sections to dramatically improve off-angle viewing — both horizontally and vertically. Sharp's "Quick Shoot" video circuitry provides one of the fastest pixel response times we've seen; moving objects on screen flow cleanly, with no distracting lag or ghosting.

The LC-32D50U's boomerang-shaped table stand can be removed if you prefer wall-mounting (wall bracket not included). The non-removable stereo speakers are positioned below the screen instead of on the sides, so the TV is compact in depth and width.

Built-in Tuners: The Sharp Aquos LC-32D50U is equipped with an 8VSB (ATSC) digital tuner, an NTSC analog tuner, and QAM tuner. No external tuner box is required in order to receive High Definition or Standard Definition programming.

Quick Shoot: Quick Shoot is Sharp's proprietary fast response time video circuit, for a response time of 6ms.

Display Resolution: The display has a resolution of 1366 x 768. The unit will accept 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p signals, and has a built-in image "scaler" to handle a variety of digital and analog audio/video sources. The "scaler" converts the signals from all video sources to match the LCD panel's native 768p resolution.

Lamp Life: The expected life of the backlight lamp is 60,000 hours (at standard backlight position), which equates to ten hours use a day for more than sixteen years.

AV Mode: This mode gives you 7 options to choose from to best match the environment, which can vary due to room brightness, type of program, or type of image input:

  • Standard: highly defined image in a normally bright room

  • User: allows you to customize the following settings and store them for each input source

  • Zoom: suitable for viewing widescreen 2.35:1 anamorphic DVDs in full screen
  • Stretch: suitable for viewing 1.78:1 DVDs. When viewing 1.85:1 DVDs this mode will show thin black bands at top and bottom of the screen.

HD View Mode: Stretch mode is available for HD programs. This mode is suitable for viewing 1.78:1 programs. When viewing 1.85:1 programs, this mode will show thin black bands at top and bottom of the screen.

PC View Modes: When using the LC-32D50U as a computer monitor you can view the image in one of the following modes:

  • 4:3 Input Signal:

    • Zoom: keeps original aspect ratio and enlarges image to fill the screen, crops top and bottom of image
    • Stretch: horizontally stretches image to fill the screen
    • Dot by Dot: detects the resolution of the signal and displays the image with the same number of pixels

A 3.5mm (1/8") minijack input is provided for PC audio.
