Sharp Reveals 4-Color 3D TV Technology

4/19/2010 12:01:00 AM Eastern

OSAKA, JAPAN — Sharp has developed
3D technology around its new
four-color LCD TV system.

Sharp’s system requires the use of
special 3D active-shutter glasses. The
system combines five proprietary LCD
technologies, including UV2A technology,
Sharp’s core LCD TV panel technology,
four primary-color technology,
FRED technology and side-mount
scanning LED backlight technology.

The system optimizes LCD for 3D
TV by increasing screen brightness
when displaying 3D images 1.8 times
higher than that of the conventional
displays, while minimizing crosstalk.

Sharp’s four-primary-color technology,
currently marketed in 2D as
Quattron, utilizes four primary colors,
adding Y (yellow) to the three conventional
primary colors of R (red),
G (green) and B (blue).
