Springfield, N.J. — Sixth Avenue Electronics said it will be the first to show the prototype of Sharp’s 108-inch LCD TV to consumers in its Paramus location.
The product is said to be the largest LCD TV in the world.
“We are proud to be the first retailer to present this product to the consumer electronics market. We are always very proud when we are chosen by a manufacturer to debut a product of this magnitude, and the Sharp 108-inch-class LCD is certainly no exception. We are honored to be an authorized Sharp retailer as they are a pioneer in quality large-screen LCD TV development,” said Mike Temiz, Sixth Avenue’s president.
The retailer said it will officially debut the product to customers during a presentation at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31, at its Paramus, N.J., location. According to a release, Bruce Tripidio, associate marketing VP for Sharp, will be on hand to provide a brief overview of the product’s features and to answer questions. The protoype will only be on display in that location.
Sharp introduced the product at the 2007 International CES last January. The manufacturer told TWICE that it currently has no plans to showcase the showpiece with any other retailers, and it has no specific plans to manufacture it at this point.
