80 inch 8K screen

Sharp extends 8K lead with second generation 80-inch 8K professional display

Sharp’s 80-inch 8K professional display, the 8M-B80AX1E, is now available to buy. The monitor joins Sharp’s 70-inch 8K display (the LV-70X500E), the world’s first commercially available 8K display, in Sharp’s line-up and offers high brightness and a larger screen size. Both monitors are aimed at businesses that need a high level of image precision and clarity.

The 80-inch display offers true 8K resolution of 7680x4320 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio, four times more than 4K Ultra HD and sixteen times the resolution of Full HD. The monitor reproduces images at a higher resolution than the human eye can capture, delivering significant benefits to an increasing number of businesses, in sectors including broadcast, design and medicine, and high-pressure data-intensive environments such as air traffic control.

The 8M-B80AX1E offers exceptional picture quality and enhanced colour accuracy thanks to a wide gamut and 10-bit extended colour range. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) further improves the depth and natural-ness of the image with more saturated colours. The 8K display boasts twice the brightness of the first-generation display, the highest ever seen on a Sharp display, with 800 cd/m² and up to 4000 cd/m² at peak levels.

To smoothly handle video, the 8M-B80AX1E uses a frame doubler, with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, or up to 120 images per second. This reduces motion blur doing fast movements, making action scenes appear more realistic.

Peter Heins, Senior Product Manager, Visual Solutions, said: “With our latest addition to Sharp’s 8K ecosystem, we are delivering on our vision to charge the world with 8K, offering resolution that transforms our ability to display reality. The new 80-inch 8K display will support new and exciting business applications that rely on ultimate image precision and clarity.”

The 8M-B80AX1E is available now through Sharp and its partners.
