Sharp continues its LCD leadership with the new 57-inch screen size class LC-57D90U. With a 16:9 aspect ratio, unbeatable resolution of 1920 x 1080 and unrivaled vivid color purity, it is a next-generation TV to carry you into the high-definition future.

The LC-57D90U utilizes Sharp’s proprietary Advanced Super View/Black TFT Panel, which provides high brightness (450 cd/m2), exceptional 1500:1 Contrast Ratio, and wide viewing angles. With a fully integrated HDTV tuner and CableCARD™ compatibility, the LC-57D90U is a complete state-of-the-art Digital Cable Ready HDTV. This means you can "plug and play" with a CableCARD™ from your HDTV-capable Cable-TV system provider, without requiring a separate cable set-top box.

The LC-57D90U features a new Five-Wavelength Backlight System to make colors exceptionally vibrant and provide deeper, more vivid reds and greens. And new Multi-Pixel Technology allows you to enjoy a clear TV picture in vivid color from anywhere in the room with 176-degree x 176-degree viewing angles.

The LC-57D90U features an elegant titanium design with detachable speakers to ensure the sound is as outstanding as the picture. In addition, the included table stand easily removes for wall mounting applications.

Other features that distinguish the LC-57D90U: HDMI, DVI-I and 2 HD component video inputs as well as Sharp’s proprietary Quick Shoot video circuit, which enables fast response time of 4ms.
