At SID 2011 manufacturers have exhibited pocket-size LCD panels with extremely high resolution. But TV size panels are not forgotten. Sharp has exhibited an 85-inch LCD panel with impressive 7680x4320 pixel resolution - 16 times higher than Full HD.

Sharp’s new 85-inch LCD panel has 16 times higher resolution than Full HD panels. This resolution is often referred to as Super Hi-Vision or 8K.

The ultra-high resolution enables Sharp to reach 103 ppi (pixels per inch), which is significantly higher than a typical 36ppi 60-inch Full HD LCD panel. That helps Sharp create extremely detailed pictures but you also need to sit relatively close to the screen to benefit from the very high resolution.
See this video demonstration of the panel below.
Sharp has no plans to release the LCD panel at this point but says that they will exhibit the panel at NHK's Science & Technology Research Laboratories later in May 2011. Also, Sharp hopes to see the first video recordings in Super Hi-Vision resolution at the 2012 Olympics.
