LAS VEGAS, Dec. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Sharp Corporation (Sharp) will participate in CES 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, to be held from January 5 to 8, 2023. CES is one of the largest and most influential tech events in the world.
Focusing on ESG fundamentals, Sharp will exhibit advanced technologies and products under the four umbrellas of New Energy, Automotive, AR/VR, and TV.
- The latest New Energy technologies that may help contribute to carbon neutrality
Sharp will unveil for the first time outside of Japan the LC-LH (Liquid and Crystal Light Harvesting), an indoor photovoltaic device developed by integrating dye-sensitized solar cells and the company’s long-cultivated LCD technology. Sharp will also exhibit perovskite solar cells, which are attracting attention as the next generation of solar cells. Because they are thin, lightweight, and flexible, Sharp expects they could be used in a greater variety of products, which could contribute to even wider use of solar power.
- Advanced Automotive devices that support safe and environmentally conscious driving
Sharp will introduce the Passenger Information Display utilizing viewing angle control. By controlling the viewing angle, the driver will not be able to see the display on the passenger-side, so they can concentrate on driving. Sharp will also exhibit a prototype of a Driver Monitoring System. A camera module integrated within the display keeps an eye on the driver. In addition, Sharp will show a compound photovoltaic module with the world’s highest*2 conversion efficiency, which could be installed on vehicles such as EVs, as well as used in aerospace and aviation applications.
- Various devices and head-mounted displays (HMD) for AR/VR
Sharp will exhibit for the first time an ultra-lightweight HMD prototype for VR equipped with its latest devices, such as an ultra-high-resolution display, ultra-high-speed autofocus camera, and ultra-compact proximity sensor. Sharp will also exhibit more new and exciting components including: the world’s thinnest*3 ultra-compact camera module, a distance sensor that helps HMD wearers with object detection and collision avoidance, and more AR/VR related devices that could provide users with a safe, comfortable, and immersive augmented reality experience.
- Flagship AQUOS XLED TV model for the global market
Sharp will exhibit the flagship AQUOS XLED TV model for the global market. Visitors can experience a new generation of images with outstanding brightness and color expression created by mini LED backlighting and quantum-dot technology. In addition, Sharp will unveil a prototype of one of the world’s largest*4 120-inch model*5 for the first time.
