THE RESOLUTION
REVOLUTION CONTINUES

At Sharp we are dedicated to delivering content in its truest form. We believe the tireless work and consideration filmmakers take in creating amazing entertainment should be experienced, not just watched. That’s why it’s our mission to produce technologies from production to in-home viewing that will deliver the director’s vision as they intended it to be seen and heard. To support this belief we continue to offer the most choices in high resolution panels including our brand new Sharp 70” THX® Certified* AQUOS 4K Ultra HD LED TV.

We are very excited to once again join forces with two other leaders in high resolution technology, RED and THX®, to host The Art of Amazing 2nd Annual 4K Film Competition. We are thrilled to be able to celebrate independent artists and provide them a venue for high resolution exhibition.
