Sharp Prepares a 4K Resolution PC Monitor

Sharp will launch a display capable of rendering images at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels over an area of 32 inches, but enough to impress any professional image editing or PC gaming enthusiasts with deep pockets.

The first 4K resolution monitor uses a Sharp LCD panel made with the IGZO technology (indium gallium zinc oxide), very promising in terms of image quality. Among other things, the IGZO technology allows LCD screens with a low coefficient in filtering incoming light from a LED source, capable of providing high brightness without excessive rise in energy consumption.

Helped by an LED light source similar to those found in the current generation of LCD TVs, the actual screen resolution of 8.3 MP can be accommodated in a housing with a thickness of only 35 mm and narrow frame.

Now known as Sharp PN-K321, the monitor can play video received through DisplayPort and HDMI connectivity and sound includes a set of stereo speakers with 2 watts power, connector and a 3.5 mm headphone type jack.

Sharp PN-K321 will be available, initially, only in Japan, where it can be bought starting February at a price of $ 5,500. Even with such a prohibitive price those interested must hurry because Sharp offers the new monitor series in a limited edition to 1500 copies made each month. Hopefully, with increasing the production volume in anticipation of an international launch, Sharp will bring the price at a more accessible standard for a wider audience.
