?Sharps expertise in liquid crystal display technology enables us to deliver the right monitor solution for any application, said Bruce Pollack, associate director of marketing, Sharp LCD Products Division. ?Our new 45-inch professional monitor displays exceptional HD content, in full 1920 x 1080 resolution, and upconverts todays standard definition content to the finer picture quality.

Sharp Electronics is the U.S. sales and marketing subsidiary of Sharp Corporation, the world leader in liquid crystal display (LCD) technology and has LCD monitors and televisions that range in size from 13- to 45-inches.

Sharps LCD monitor line has several proprietary technologies and features that ensure unparalleled image quality for a professional presentation of information, data and images. The line has anti-glare and low-reflection properties enabling Sharp monitors to be placed in brighter areas where other screens might appear washed out. Higher contrast lets viewers discern details they might otherwise miss, particularly when viewing darker content. The 170-degree viewing angles help the monitor display a crisp picture that can be seen from virtually anywhere in the room. A Black TFT/Bright Pixel Elimination feature ensures that if a failed pixel occurs, it is effectively invisible to the viewer. Sharp LCD monitors virtually eliminate the risk of ?ghost or burn-in images that can occasionally appear on plasma and CRT monitors. The monitors can also display any content with ease, from DVD to varying PC resolutions thanks to their full complement of input and output connectors.

Developed for companies looking to install or update digital signage or information display applications, the Sharp PN-455 LCD monitor is designed for high-resolution digital signage, TV broadcast and production, graphics, corporate/education, government (including homeland security), medical/healthcare, staging and rental and transportation center/FID applications.
