updated 10:30 am EDT, Thu September 2, 2010

First Quattron-based 3D TV from Sharp a 60 incher

Sharp has shown off its first 3D TV based on its Quattron technology (formerly QuadPixel) that adds yellow to the regular red, green and blue colors used in traditional TV sets. The fourth color is said to increase brightness by 1.8 times compared to traditional sets while expanding the color gamut of the sets and rendering more realistic colors. The 60-inch set will require active shutter glasses to view 3D images, like other rivals.

The TV sill use Sharp's Super Edge LED backlighting and have Aquos Net Plus that will bring access to Flickr and YouTube. No other details on the set are known. In the UK, the sets will cost the equivalent of $5,385. A US launch is very likely but may have to wait for CES in January. [via Gizmodo]
