Europe follows Japan, where the LV-70X500E has been on the market since last year as LC-70X500. Sharp admitted during the IFA event according to AVHub that the device is mainly intended to scale up 2k and 4k images where the TV ‘improves’ the image. In addition, the company focuses on users who want to display their own photos and videos at high resolution, for example from USB stick.
The television can receive 8k video through the four hdmi 2.0 ports together. In fact, four images are shown on the screen that together yield an 8k resolution. This requires, for example, a PC with two video cards, so that there are enough HDMI connections. Support for hdmi 2.1 does not have the device. Sharp continues to focus on the sale of 8k cameras and receivers, for a wide ecosystem for the resolution.
