There’s a lot of talk around the tech industry about how Sharp’s HQ is hemorrhaging money. We even wrote a story two weeks ago about the potential of them being bought by Foxconn who’s now offering $5.5 Billion for them.
But, all the while, Sharp continues to crank out new models — including three this week (two AQUOS BOARDS and one 80” 4K model). The two AQUOS BOARDS, the 70” PN-L703W and 60” PN-L603W are both 1080p models that include wireless touch and BYOD functionality (to allow for four inputs to be displayed simultaneously). The AQUOS BOARDS are aimed at both education and small meeting room installs instead of using a projector. The third display is the PN-H801, an 80” 4K resolution (3840×2160) display that includes the ability to display 4K at 60fps and has 4 HDMI inputs. The PN-H801 display can play slideshows and videos without the need for a PC as it has a built-in USB-based media player for digital signage applications. The PN-H801 display has an ultra-slim bezel and built-in speakers. It weighs only 119 lbs. and has carrying handles in all four corners, allowing for easy transport and installation.
