Sharp had brought a range of interesting things at CES, including <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1358161250><b>new Ultra HD TVs</b></a>. Sharp also exhibited new technology such as flexible OLED displays for smartphones and a 32” 4K monitor.<br /><br /><h3>Sharp's flexible OLED displays</h3>Sharp exhibited its flexible OLED displays prior to CES but this was the first time that we had a chance to take a look. The OLED displays are certainly impressive, and it signals a future where screens get thinner, flexible and more durable. Imagine the possibilities.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sharpflexoled-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sharpflexoled-1.jpg" alt="Sharp exhibited flexible OLED displays" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sharp exhibited flexible OLED displays</i></p><br />The display is 3.4 inches large and can bend even further than shown in the picture above. Despite it being flexible it still delivers great picture quality with a 540x960 pixel resolution. That compares to the same pixel density as modern smartphones.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sharpflexoled-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sharpflexoled-2.jpg" alt="Sharp exhibited flexible OLED displays" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sharp exhibited flexible OLED displays</i></p><br />The display can bend in all directions and above you see how only the corner is bending.<br /><br />Sharp also has plans to produce a “10-inch” flexible OLED display, optimized for tablets. The OLED displays are all produced with Sharp’s IGZO method.<br /><br /><h3>Sharp's 32" 4K monitor</h3>Sharp also exhibited a 32-inch monitor with a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels - also called 4K. Sharp will begin selling the monitors to professional customers in the near future but unfortunately no plans for the consumer market were announced.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sharp4kmonitor-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sharp4kmonitor-1.jpg" alt="Sharp 4K monitor" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sharp also unveiled a 32” 4K monitor for professional use</i></p> <br />At Sharp’s booth they had a demonstration of the 4K monitor next to a 32-inch monitor. On both panels, Sharp had a spreadsheet with very tiny numbers. The 4K monitor had crisp, easily readable fonts. It was impossible to discern the fonts on the Full HD monitor.
