At ISE 2019, Sharp launched several products geared toward the workspace, education and retail. New specialized 4K and 8K displays dominated their ISE presence, paving the way for better collaboration and learning capabilities.
Sharp’s first Windows collaboration display (WCD), a 70-inch 4K display, meets Microsoft WCD specifications. Combining Sharp’s award-winning touch technology with sensors, the display is designed to support and improve teamwork. USB-C and wireless connections enable quick connections to presenters’ devices.
Sharp also launches its latest BIG PAD for the corporate environment. The TH1 range of 85-inch, 75-inch and 65-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) interactive displays offers 20-point touch and features the latest InGlass interactive technology for a highly responsive pen-on-paper experience. An integrated Android PC includes a whiteboard application and makes it easy to connect wirelessly to other devices.
Sharp demonstrated interactive solutions for every stage of education, from an early learning table for nursery aged children, up to Sharp’s latest interactive BIG PAD for lectures in universities and at corporate training centers (the PN-70HC1E). The BIG PAD HC1 range offers a choice of 70-inch, 75-inch and 86-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) displays with a range of connection options, including USB, HDMI and wireless. The 4K resolution and Sharp touch technology enables high-resolution reading and highly responsive pen-on-paper writing in fine detail.
Also making an appearance at this year’s ISE, Sharp is adding to its lineup of 4K Ultra-HD displays in 2019, with twelve new models across three families, the PN-HM, PN-HB and PN-HW. The PN-HB and PN-HM models are large format, in three sizes from 65-inch to 85-inch. They can be installed in portrait or landscape and face-up and can run many different partner applications via an embedded Android 7.1 SoC and a Mini-OPS extension slot. Sharp’s PN-HW professional displays offer six screen sizes, from 43-inch to 86-inch and a built-in USB media player.
Additionally, Sharp exhibited its 8K ecosystem including an 8K professional camcorder and new 8K display. The 8C-B60A 8K (60p) professional camcorder integrates capabilities for video shooting and recording, playback, and line output. The output from the camera will be shown on an 80-inch 8K monitor, 8M-B80AX1E, Sharp’s second generation 8K display, which offers exceptional picture quality. Sharp also presented a model of its compact 8K video camera, currently in development. The camera is planned to feature a Micro Four Thirds mount and a CMOS sensor capable of delivering 8K resolution at 30 fps using the H.265 codec.
