Sharp Ships Commercial 8K 80″ Display

The new Sharp 80″ 8M-B80AX1U 8K UHD display, what Sharp says is the only commercially-available 7680×4320 resolution monitor, is now shipping. Aimed at design studios and TV broadcasters, it’s specified with 800 cd/m2 (or up to 4,000 cd/m2 peak level), includes HDR (high dynamic range) technology, has a 10-bit extended color range that literally delivers colorimetry where each pixel can generate up to 1.07 billion colors. With more than five times more local dimming backlight zones and a much greater number of LEDs, it enables a much greater contrast level between dark and bright areas. And its 120Hz frame rate reduces motion blur during fast panning or movement.

With two sets of four HDMI inputs, it supports the current standard of 8K signal input for up to two sources, end-to-end 8K signals can be displayed. For example, a production studio could connect a Sharp 8K camera and an 8K workstation to one display and switch seamlessly between sources.

The $19,495 8M-B80AX1U is here.
