Sharp introduces 32-inch 4K IGZO monitor, supports pen input
Sharp introduces its very own 32-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor based on the company’s new low-power IGZO display. Additionally, the monitor supports pen input, much like the stylus on the Galaxy Note II.
1080p is old, 4K is the new high-resolution standard. Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen a number of new TVs and Monitors, all packing an absurd amount of pixels onboard. While 3840 x 2160 might sound like a lot, but is actually far behind the 5-inch 1080p Smartphone wonder displays. Of course, with TVs being a huge market and more and more people wanting high-resolution monitors for their desktop PCs, it was only a matter of time before manufacturers catered to their demands. Here’s Sharp’s new offering, a 32-inch IGZO panel monitor with a 4K resolution.
- 1. 4K high-definition display equipped with an originally developed high-sensitivity, high-precision touchscreen.
- 2. The industry’s thinnest-profile design and a dedicated “sliding” stand optimized for viewing or onscreen pen/multi-touch operation.
- 3. Connectivity with PCs via a single cable for displaying 4K data.
The Sharp PN-K322B, apart from using the low-power (up to 90% lesser) IGZO panel, packs an astoundingly high 4K resolution. On top of that, the display supports multi-touch (Windows 8 love), and here’s the most interesting bit, it also supports digital writing using a dedicated touch pen with a pen-tip width of just 2mm.” Call it an enlarged stylus (if you had the Galaxy Note II in your mind right now), but we sure love this new addition.
Sadly, there is no word on pricing as of yet, but our estimates put it between the $3000 to $3500 range. The monitor hits the Japanese market on July 30th.
