Sharp has announced the world’s first 3D TV to feature its Quattron technology that adds a yellow sub-pixel to the standard red, green and blue spectrum for improved picture brightness and colour appearance.

The Quattron 3D TV, Sharp’s first foray in to LCD 3D TV panels, will feature Super Edge LED backlighting for crisply lit images further boosted by the display’s UV2A system technology that maximises the light emitted from the backlight.
