Sharp plans to unveil its first 3D TV series, the Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED series, at the IFA 2010. The Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series comprises three models, LC-60LE925UN, the LC-52LE925UN, and the LC-46LE925UN.

The company has revealed that the 60-inch model of the Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series will be available in the UK starting October 2010, at a price of £3,500.
The Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series, that be available in 60- and 46-inch sizes, is being touted as the world’s first 3DTV series with Quattron technology. This technology is the company’s trademark display system where yellow pixels have been introduced into the basic RGB color spectrum. The addition of the yellow color displays more vibrant and natural-looking images. This effect is most noticeable in objects colored red, orange, yellow, and gold.
Sharp promises higher refresh speeds and an enhanced LCD shutter glasses experience with the Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series. The shutter glasses on these sets will be available in red, blue, and silver.
The 3D TVs are equipped with a side-mount scanning LED Backlight, together with Sharp’s high-speed LCD drive technology (better known as FRED or Frame Rate Enhanced Driving).
Sharp claims that the Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series will deliver 1.8 times more brightness than other competing products and offer reduced crosstalk, which further enhances the 3D experience. The TVs display full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and a contrast ratio of 8000000:1. The TV panels of the Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series are 3.9-cm deep.
Customers will also receive a pair of AN-3DG10 3D glasses that come bundled with the 3D TVs. A user can simply push a button and switch between 2D and 3D footage. The glasses will come in three colors.
The Sharp Aquos LE925 Quattron LED TV series offers an option to connect to the internet through a Aquos Net+ platform. The panels are equipped with four HDMI ports and provide Ethernet support.
In addition to the 3D TV series, Sharp also plans to introduce the LE924, LE824 and LE814 Quattron 2D LCD TVs, which offer similar features as the Sharp Aquos LE925, minus 3D capabilities.
The Sharp Aquos Quattron LE924, LE824, and LE814 LCD TV series will be loaded with the four-primary-color technology and promises to deliver rich colors and impressive 2D pictures. All models in this series will be network-enabled, allowing users to access internet services, such as video streaming and web browsing. These sets are expected to be launched in September 2010.
As of now, the company has not revealed any information about the price of the Sharp LE924, LE824, and LE814 Aquos Quattron LCD TV series.
