Sharp Electronics Corporation Key Developments

Sharp Electronics Corporation Introduces SmartStorage Energy Management Solution

Sharp Electronics Corporation announced the launch of its SmartStorage energy solution, which is immediately available throughout California and will be expanded to other states in the second half of 2014. SmartStorage is a unique energy storage solution, which can dramatically cut utility demand charges for commercial and industrial buildings. It was developed in the U.S. at Camas, Wash.-based Sharp Laboratories of America. SmartStorage keeps a large amount of electric energy stored in reserve, which it selectively releases in order to limit a facility's electricity demand. The system employs sophisticated, predictive controls to manage the release of this energy, resulting in high performance, high system efficiency and world-class reliability. Sharp's confidence in its product is reflected in its innovative performance guarantee, made available following a review of a commercial customer's historical load profile. SmartStorage operates effectively either as a stand-alone solution or when deployed together with a solar electric installation.

Sharp Electronics Corporation Introduces New PN-U Series Professional LED Backlit Displays

Sharp Electronics Corporation has expanded its lineup with its new PN-U Series of professional LED backlit displays. The roster now includes three new display classes, and with the introduction of this new series, Sharp's professional display lineup is now 100% LED backlit. Designed for maximum impact, built for 24/7 operation, and sized for flexible portrait and landscape installation, these displays represent a dynamic new breed of indoor digital signage solutions. The new series lineup includes the PN-U553 55-inch class (54.7" diagonal), the PN-U473 47-inch class (47" diagonal) and the PN-U423 42-inch class (42" diagonal). These models were developed to be thin, lightweight and energy efficient. The PN-U Series displays measure just over 2 inches at their thickest point and weigh approximately 55/42/35 lbs. respectively, making for easy LEED(R) compliant placement in offices, public spaces, stores and other commercial establishments. The stylishly thin profiles also enables attractive wall mounting with minimal protruding parts. With the PN-U Series, the optional PN-ZB01 expansion board is no longer needed as all commonly used input/output terminals are already built-in to the displays. A comprehensive range of input/output terminals -- including HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort(TM) -- come standard on PN-U553/U473/U423 displays providing expanded connectivity options. Thin and lightweight enough to ensure an easy fit in stores, offices and public spaces, the PN-U Series professional LED displays boast the outstanding image quality needed to deliver truly compelling signage. The PN-U553 and PN-U423 will be available for shipment later in Oct. 2013. The PN-U473 will be available early December 2013.
