Sharp intros 65-inch HDTV

Sharp is adding to its recently introduced GX5 line of AQUOS HDTVs with the 65-inch AQUOS LC-65GX5. It replaces the 52-inch version as the largest in the range, and is likewise Internet-ready. The 1080p, 120Hz display panel also features a moderate 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 450cd/m2 brightness. Sharp's ARSS speaker system features a 2.1-channel set-up, while the built-in digital amplifier sends 7.5W to each speaker and 15W to a subwoofer. The viewing angle is 176 degrees from all four sides.

The set includes both analog and digital terrestrial tuners, while connection options include three HDMI inputs, three composites, three D5, one S-video and one DVI video inputs as well as an optical audio input. Internet connectivity is via two FireWire connectors, or what Sony calls i.LINK. The HDTV is also DLNA enabled, allowing it to work with compatible PCs and other devices. An infrared port lets viewers send images from their camera phones to the HDTV set.

The LC-65GX5 will launch on October 23 in Japan, priced at the equivalent of about $6,500.
