New High-Bright Sharp Agriculture-Grade LCDs Go to Extremes
LCD modules feature sunlight/sunglass viewability and wide temperature ranges, backed by Sharp warranties

CAMAS, Wash. – May 24, 2016 – Today, Sharp introduced two new high-performance displays optimized to perform in extreme industrial environments such as agriculture (harvesters, tractors), marine navigation, and others. The new 10.4” (diagonal) SVGA TFT display delivers 1000 nits of brightness out of the box for superb viewability in high ambient light conditions, and includes a built-in LED backlight driver. The new 7.0” (diagonal) WVGA TFT panel delivers high-brightness performance at 750 nits. Both panels are readable while wearing polarized sunglasses.

The sunlight-readable displays are latest in the suite of high brightness LCDs available under full Sharp warranty. A wide -30°C to +80°C operating temperature means these rugged LCDs can stand up to punishing environments. Both displays will be on show at Display Week, May 24 – 26, at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, CA.
