CES 2009: Sharp LCD-TVs with built-in Blu-Ray player

08 Jan 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

Don't miss anything from CES 2009. See our huge CES 2009 section.

Sharp introduces their new AQUOS LCD-TV series with a built-in Blu-ray player, for a convenient all-in-one home theater solution. The Full-HD 1080p AQUOS BD series, which includes a 52, 46, 42, 37 and 32-inch model, combines television with a side-loading multi-slot for Blu-ray, DVD and CD content.

The series offers a single-step operation feature that turns on the TV and activates play when a BD disc is inserted. In addition, the BD series features a newly developed Advanced Super View (ASV) panel with reduced reflection and a new AQUOS Pure Mode for convenient optimized viewing of Blu-ray titles.

- "We created this series to offer consumers a product that provides the same high-quality, clear picture they've come to expect from a Sharp AQUOS, but with the added convenience of a Blu-ray player for a unique combination solution that allows playback of the latest HD Blu-ray movies," said Bob Scaglione, senior vice president and group manager, Product and Marketing Group, Sharp Electronics Corporation.
- "This product is a one-stop, stylish home theater and the built-in side-loading Blu-ray slot is also a space-saver for style-conscious consumers, eliminating the need for a separate box and extra cables."
