Sharp 2014 Quattron+ Super HDTV Prices Revealed
Sharp is getting ready to ship a new category of LED LCD HDTVs that it calls Quattron+ (Q+). The technology is very interesting. Q+ displays use four horizontal (red, green, blue and yellow) and and extra row of vertical sub-pixels for every main pixel, thus upping the sub-pixel count to 16.588 million. A regular 1080p-resolution plasma or LCD HDTV, in contrast, consists of 1920 horizontal and 1080 vertical pixels made up of red, blue and green sub-pixels (6.22 million total).

Along with providing double the vertical resolution of regular HDTVs, Q+ sets accept up to 30 fps Ultra HD signals (3840 x 2160) via HDMI 1.4 . One of the four HDMI inputs is compatible with HDCP 2.2. The Q+ line does not include HEVC (H.265) decoding, however, which means these sets won’t be compatible with forthcoming native 4K Netflix content.
