Sharp 9 series TVs
Sharp introduced 8, 7 and 6 range TVs at CES, and details of a 9 series has surfaced, too. Sharp has not revealed the entire specifications list but the 9 series is one to look out for when it arrives later this year with a slim and elegant design that packs Sharpâ€™s most advanced TV technology.

The 9 series will reuse some of the elements that made the Elite X5 model one of the best LCD-TVs available, and incorporate a full array LED backlight with local dimming to enable extremely deep black levels. The 9 series TVs also use Sharpâ€™s new Quad Pixel Plus II panel (with full HD resolution), active 3D with shutter-glasses and a 240 Hz system with scanning backlights for improved motion resolution.
In addition to the picture technologies, Sharp has integrated their all-new SmartCentral Hub with access to apps such as Netflix, Hulu, CinemaNow and YouTube, as well as DLNA services and a new Beamzit media sharing tool that lets iOS and Android smartphone and tablet users wirelessly send photos, music and video to a 2012 Sharp TV.
