3D TV has been the talk of new TV technology lately, but there’s a new 2D technology coming into play, too. You’ve probably seen the great TV commercials featuring George Takei in a white lab coat explaining Sharp’s newest advancement: “Quattron” quad pixel Technology. But what is this crazy “quad-pixel” talk and what’s so different about it?
Normally, televisions display colors using a series of red, green and blue pixels that come together to form a bigger picture. Quattron TVs display these same pictures with yellow added to the palette, which lets you see never-before-seen colors on your TV. These TVs are Energy Star 5.0 compliant, which is the strictest Energy Star level yet. The yellow pixels produce a brighter picture and therefore promotes lower power consumption by using the LED backlight more efficiently. If you’re looking for a television with excellent color depth and richness, then this is the TV for you.
Quattron TVs also have Sharp’s app suite, Aquos Net, included and allows you to do things like stream video from your Netflix account, check weather/sports scores, play games and more. It also has a USB connection that allows playback of various multimedia files, including photos, music and video, and has a hard drive that allows you to pause and rewind live TV.
There’s a lot to see with the Sharp Quattron series of televisions, and it can only be seen in person. Stop by any P.C. Richard & Son Superstore to see the amazing Quattron quad-pixel Technology yourself! You can also see what we have available on our website.
