Sharp to deliver World’s largest LCD monitor to Shinjuku Piccadilly Cinema Complex

Sharp will introduce into the Japanese market a 108V-inch LCD monitor, the world’s largest, for business and commercial applications. Sharp LB-1085 LCD monitor will be delivered to the Shinjuku Piccadilly cinema complex one of Tokyo’s premier multiplex movie theaters, which is set to open July 19, 2008. The Shinjuku Piccadilly, where this monitor will be installed, will be one of Tokyo’s premiere multiplex cinemas, and is being built under the concept of a “pure-white theater” with a predominant design theme of brilliant, immaculate white.
The entrance lobby features a huge open-ceiling foyer extending from the 1st floor through to the 3rd floor, and the Sharp108V-inch LCD monitor will be set up in the center of the third-floor main lobby facing this open foyer. This setting will take maximum advantage of the outstanding features of the LCD, including wide viewing angles and high contrast even in bright locations.

The Sharp LCD monitor LB-1085 features a widescreen 108V-inch Advanced Super View LCD panel; the maximum size that a single 8th-generation glass substrate (2,160 x 2,460 mm) manufactured at Kameyama Plant No. 2 can yield. The large display can convey images to many people in wide interior spaces. Plus, a rich assortment of inputs, including HDMI and DVI-I connectors, provides greater connectivity with a wide variety of equipment and devices, and a fan-less design that minimizes noise and intake of dust from outside air further improves its level of technical sophistication as a commercial display.
