The Sharp 80" Class LC-80UQ17U AQUOS Full HD Smart LED 3D TV is equipped to handle 1080p and 4K viewing content. This LED TV has a native 1920 x 1080 resolution and utilizes Sharp Q+ subpixel technology to display 4K material. Integrated AquoMotion 960 uses the TV's native 240 Hz refresh rate to reduce distortion on fast-moving images. Ethernet and Wi-Fi are both built-in for Internet connectivity. Once connected, you'll have access to streaming multimedia content like Netflix and YouTube. Integrated Bluetooth allows you to connect optional Bluetooth-enabled sources such as MP3 players. You can also share content with compatible portable devices with built-in Miracast and MHL compatibility.
The AQUOS LC-80UQ17U has active 3D technology, which allows you to view 3D material in full HD resolution; two pairs of active 3D glasses are included. The TV's 80" screen has an edge-lit LED backlight for displaying bright and vibrant images, and a 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which highlights the display's ability to handle light and dark onscreen content.
With four HDMI and two USB ports you can connect multiple audio and video sources. The USB ports not only support photo, music, and video formats, but they can also be used to upgrade the TV's internal software. A digital optical interface is also built-in for outputting audio to an external sound system. The TV's built-in down-firing speakers can produce up to 35W of total power with a built-in subwoofer. As an ENERGY STAR qualified TV, the AQUOS LC-80UQ17U was designed for efficient power management.
In earning THX certification, the AQUOS LC-80UQ17U LED TV passed 200 rigorous tests, meeting high industry standards for picture performance.
Q+ technology divides each subpixel in two, resulting in 16 million subpixels on the TV. More subpixels equals more detail, and lower resolution content is scaled to take advantage of this additional resolution. Q technology takes a 1920 x 1080 resolution screen and makes an effective resolution of up to 3840 x 2160.
Sharp Quattron Technology
Sharp Quattron technology is engineered to provide a detailed, clear, rich picture, with enhanced color and brightness by adding 2 million sub-pixels to the standard screen. This incorporates a fourth yellow subpixel to the standard red, green and blue, giving this model 33% more subpixels than a standard HDTV, for a total of 8 million subpixels. The AQUOS Quattron panel is bright by design and uses less power than typical 1080p TVs.
The built-in Revelation Upscaler takes all of your HD content and optimizes it for the higher resolution screen.
AquoMotion 960, Sharp's backlight scanning technology, quadruples the TVs effective refresh rate to combat distortion on fast-moving content like televised sporting events.
The high-brightness panel's intelligent contrast engine constantly analyzes the signal and enhances the brightness of the bright objects on the screen while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the screen. The result is a vibrant and dynamic image.
