Sharp unveils 60" Ultra HD TV, with $30,000 price tag

Ultra HD – or 4K – TVs are still extremely pricey and Sharp underlines that point with their new 60-inch Ultra HD TV. The TV is wildly impressive and the first THX-certified Ultra HD TV but makes Sony and LG’s Ultra HD TVs look cheap.

Sharp is one of the proponents of an early shift to Ultra HD and they have exhibited 4K and 8K TVs for years. Here is a real product. It is Sharp’s 60-inch TV with 3840x2160 pixels. It is dubbed ICC Purios due to the so-called ICC picture processor inside.

The TV will be available in Japan from February and is the first Ultra HD TV with a “THX Certification” which basically means that color reproduction and other picture elements are in line with the THX / picture standards, for the best possible picture quality.

The TV is not cheap at over $30,000 USD, and considering that Sony and LG offer 84-inch Ultra HD TVs for a lot less, Sharp could have a hard time selling a much smaller 60-inch Ultra HD; THX certification or not.
