June 09, But does it matter? Find Ratings Televisions Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV with pixels Can more subpixels and clever video processing make a p HDTV perform like an even higher-resolution set? To anyone who knows how a TV display works, that seems like an impossible proposition, but it's pretty much what Sharp is proposing with its new Quattron Plus series of televisions. But does it work? At its press conference, Sharp pitched these sets as a more affordable bridge between standard p models and pricier true Ultra HD TVs. But these sets are expensive, especially compared with other major-brand p sets—and even a few Ultra HD TVs —the same size. And second, do these sets represent a bridge to a 4K future, since Sharp claims they can handle native 4K signals?

We put all three TVs through our usual battery of lab tests to see their capabilities. What we found was pretty surprising. Better than p resolution? But do more Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV mean more detail? To really get an idea of what Sharp is attempting to do, you have to understand some basics about display TV technology.

A video input signal then drives each pixel to a specific brightness and color Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV create the image you see on your TV. Sharp then addresses Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV subpixels in a novel way to generate a higher pixel count. But with special processing, Quattron Plus manipulates and scales image content in a clever way to take advantage of this new configuration to extend horizontal resolution while maintaining accurate color. Finally, these 8 million subpixels are split in half, effectively doubling vertical resolution and increasing the total number of subpixels to 16 million. Find the right television for your needs and budget with our TV buying guide and Ratings. Using a magnifying loupe—as we did—you can actually see the repeating sequence of red, green, and blue subpixels mentioned earlier.


The way these subpixels are addressed, their shape and arrangement, and even the gaps between them, can vary among different displays, reflecting the different technologies used. With new Ultra HD setsinviting viewers to sit closer, this level of scrutiny becomes increasingly relevant, particularly with regard to Quattron Plus processing. Photo 1 Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV scene we froze from "The Dark Knight" in the red box. Photo 2 A close-up of the highlighted Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV from above. Look at the edges of the bat wings. In the zoom-in image of the highlighted red box photo 2, above for example, you can see the busy pixel pattern around the edges of the bat wing. There was certainly something interesting going on with the Quattron.

Photo 3 See how the edges of the bat wings have cleaned up nicely. So we used Mode 1 for all our tests.


The test pattern—a crop of the center section of the pattern is shown below—is a series of concentric black-white circles sine waves, actually getting ever higher in frequency as they approach the center much like a zone plate pattern but with frequencies in the reverse direction. The concentric circle pattern has detail going beyond the capabilities of p, which Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV reproduced flawlessly on the Sony UHD TV see the screen shot, photo 4, below.

Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV were curious to see how the Sharp TVs would handle it. This was confirmed by the visible V-shaped aliasing interference patterns present in the vertical top and bottomand horizontal left and right portions of the image see photo 5, below.


Horizontal resolution now extended Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV the limits of the pattern, with aliasing notably absent—much like what we saw on the Sony Ultra HD display. But while horizontal resolution appeared very Ultra HDlike, vertical resolution was a different story.

In the upper and lower parts of the image, resolution showed no improvement and aliasing was still present see photo 6which was disappointing. On the Sharp, these images had a generally excellent, but inconsistent, level of detail, just like we saw with the test pattern. But other edges in the image that lay closer to a horizontal position were coarser and more jagged, lacking the smoothness we we saw when played back on the Sony UHD TV. When we switched to a high-resolution graphic image, we could see that fine details, such as the whiskers of a cat, looked smooth and well defined when they were in a more upright position thanks to the enhanced horizontal Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTVbut these same whiskers became jaggy and choppy as they approached a horizontal position due to the limited vertical resolutionconsistent with what we saw in the earlier test pattern. As a result, the overall image detail was arguably a touch better than the Sharp LC-60TQ15U HDTV image's, but no match for the smooth, seamless detail provided by the Sony UHD TV.

I did lots of homework on all 4K TV's(#, i, p, Hz, Hz, and etc. and it almost always came down to Sony, Samsung, LG, and Sharp. I purchased my first 60" Sharp Aquos P LED.
