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).
