The IPS panel is listed at 1000 nit brightness, it supports 120 Hz while in 8K (7,680 x 4,320 pixels) mode, and also supports High Dynamic Range.

The immersiveness of VR (virtual reality) is often impaired by the visible dots of a display. This is a problem common to existing VR headsets, which magnify the images of display panels by using lenses.

Sharp claims that its super-high-definition IGZO display solves these issues. Because two (right and left) displays are used for a VR headset, it becomes possible to realize a resolution of 4k (3,840 x 2,160 pixels).

Below you see some circular IGZO displays designed for vehicles. The left one has a resolution of 824 x 824 pixels and a pixel density of 328ppi. The circular display on the right is rated at 1,280 x 720 pixels.
