Sharp LV-85001 8K TV coming next month

Sharp logoThe world's first production 8K TV, the LV-85001, will be released by Sharp next month, priced at about 16 million yen ($133,000.)

The LV-85001 is positioned for business use and typically for those working with ultra-high resolution video content. For instance, testing out broadcasts is one thing professionals can actually do with this new display, and Japan's NHK has been working on the technology for years. Public tests could start as early as next year, and the first broadcasts are scheduled for 2018. Although this 85-inch monitor does have a TV tuner inside, it won't pick up any 8K content yet - though it may be used to help with broadcast tests next year.

The 8K LCD panel is 7680 x 4320, which works out to 104 pixels per inch at the 85-inch size. Sharp says the IGZO panel's contrast ratio is 100,000:1 with viewing angles of 176 degrees and a brightness of 1,000cd / m2. The color gamut covered reaches the 78% BT.2020.

The panel has four HDMI 2.0 ports to receive (input) 8K video. In response to an input of up to 60fps, the displayed video is performed at 120Hz.

The LV-85001 is equipped with a 2.1ch speaker system that outputs 65W (10W × 4 + 25W). Its dimensions are 1,930 x 173 x 1,115mm (W x D X H) and weighs about 100kg.

It'll be available to business customers from October 31st, following a demonstration at the CEATEC trade show early next month.
