MAHWAH, N.J., Feb. 5, 2015 — Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, announces the launch of its first professional grade 70″ Class (69.5″ diagonal) 4K Ultra HD Display. The new PN-H701 professional display offers 4K Ultra HD resolution (3,840 x 2,160) to showcase detailed text and breathtaking high-resolution content.
The large and stylish 70″ Class display, with ultra-slim aluminum bezel, was designed and engineered for 24/7 operation in professional and commercial installations. Measuring just 9mm (top/right/left), it is the narrowest, thinnest, and lightest display in its class, allowing for simple installation and maintenance. Designed for both portrait and landscape formats, as well as up to 20-degree upward and downward tilt, this high-impact professional display is ideal for a multitude of environments, including command and control, museum and entertainment, as well as unified communications and collaboration.
Unlike some other professional grade 4K Ultra HD models, the Sharp PN-H701 comes equipped with built-in upscaling capability, allowing Full HD (1080p) signals to be easily upscaled to 4K Ultra HD images. In addition, the PN-H701 features a built-in USB and internal memory media player, allowing playback of informational content without the need of a PC.
“While Sharp offers a wide-range of 4K Ultra HD televisions, the PN-H701 is our first professional grade display,” said Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Solutions Group, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “This new model combines both 4K Ultra HD resolution and exclusive built-in features, making it as versatile a display as there is on the market and a trendsetter in its class.”
Because of its unique capabilities, the PN-H701 can support businesses of all sizes and with a variety of needs. The professional grade 70″ Class 4K Ultra HD display will be made widely available in February 2015.
