Businesses to get first dibs on Sharp's next-generation 8K monitors

Sharp will begin sales of its 8K monitor for commercial use at the end of October.

OSAKA -- Sharp will release its 8K ultra high-definition screens for broadcasting stations and movie studios at the end of October, taking the first step toward commercializing the next-generation technology for the mass market.

     The Japanese company last fall unveiled its prototype "Super Hi-Vision" 8K screen, which touts images 16 times sharper than standard "full HD" screens, and has since established the technology for mass production. The professional-use monitors with 85-inch screens will sell for 15 million yen to 16 million yen ($123,304 to $131,524). Manufacturing costs are expected to come down as production volume rises.
