Sharp to Introduce the 'Internet AQUOS' PC+TV

Sharp will introduce into the Japanese market the "Internet AQUOS" which will enable users to view high-quality digital high-definition TV broadcasts as well as enjoy Internet and broadband broadcasts simply and easily using only the remote controller for navigation.

The new Internet AQUOS lineup includes four models based on combinations of a 37V-inch (LD-37SP1) or 32V-inch (LD-32SP1) TV section with a high-definition video recording (PC-AX100M) or terrestrial analog recording (PC-AX50M) personal computer.

For the first time, Sharp has fused PC functions with its AQUOS LCD TVs, expanding TV applications into new territory. Users can not only view HDTV broadcasts with superb image quality, but also use the remote control unit to quickly display websites associated with TV programs while they are being viewed and enable on-line purchases of products related to the show at that moment.

Users can also record entire HDTV broadcasts, as well as store photo image data taken with digital cameras and music downloaded from the Internet on the approximately 500GB hard drive built into the PC and take advantage of the outstanding picture and sound quality of the AQUOS to enjoy them at any time.

The Internet AQUOS is a product that pursues to the utmost the high image quality, Internet integration, and ease of operation that will be demanded of living room TVs in the future, and is being offered as a product destined to be the vanguard of the new era of digital audio and video.
