IFA 2011 Best in Show
IFA 2011 is over - Best in Show & highlights

19 Sep 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

IFA 2011 is over and we have returned home with a lot to tell you more about in the coming months. In this article we round off and bring you the highlights from this years’ IFA fair. We also award the “Best in Show” product.

IFA 2011 - Best in Show

IFA 2011 was an eventful show, but manufacturers did not launch many new big products. These will be introduced at CES 2012 in Las Vegas in January, instead. Last year we awarded LG’s 31” OLED-TV the "Best in Show" product. This year's "Best in Show" award goes to:

Sharp’s 85-inch 8Kx4K TV is jaw-droppingly impressive

We had a few other candidates, but in the absence of new products we have no doubt that Sharp’s 85-inch TV with 7680x3420 pixel resolution deserves the Best in Show award. Sharp did little to promote their TV but it received its share of attention on the exhibition floors. Picture quality was amazing – you need to see it to believe it.
