Sharp is expanding its range of P50 TVs which are ‘optimized’ for the UK’s PAL TV broadcast system. The new P70 range comprises the LC-26P70E, LC-32P70E and LC-37P70E models (26 inch, 32 inch and 37inch respectively). All have a 960 x 540 panel resolution and feature a built-in Freeview tuner, but in what may be seem as confusing labelling for consumers, they have been branded HD compatible rather than Ready. 720p and 1080i received via the HDMI inputs is scaled down to the native resolution of the panel. Connectivity includes two Scarts, , S-Video Input and a PC jack.
Frustratingly, there are no component inputs. Instead, Sharp supplies a VGA to component adaptor in the box. Additional features include a CAM slot for Top Up TV and the brand’s proprietary picture processing technology, Advanced Super View (ASV). The Aquos trio have also been awarded the Energy Saving Trust’s ‘energy saving recommended endorsement’ for their low energy consumption and contribution to reducing carbon dioxide emissions (CO2). Sharp is one of the first LCD TV manufacturers to receive this certification in the UK.
