Sharp's LC-45GD6U AQUOS is a breathtaking 45" widescreen HDTV1 that can easily enhance the decor of any family room, living room or den. The LC-45GD6U is the largest LC-TV on the market today (along with other 45" Sharp models), and it displays all content in full HD spec (1080p) resolution, the highest of the DTV resolutions. With a 16:9 aspect ratio, unbeatable resolution of 1920 x 1080 and vivid color purity, it is a next-generation TV to carry you into the high-definition future.
The LC-45GD6U utilizes Sharp's proprietary Advanced Super View/Black TFT Panel, which provides high brightness, an 800:1 contrast ratio, and wide viewing angles (170 degreed H x 170 degrees V).
With a fully integrated HDTV tuner and CableCARD compatibility, the LC-45GD6U is a complete state-of-the-art HDTV. This means you can "plug and play" with any HDTV-capable Digital Cable Ready cable TV system, without requiring a separate cable set-top box. The LC45GD6U features an elegant new titanium design with detachable speakers to ensure the sound is as outstanding as the picture. In addition, the table stand (included) can be easily removed for wall mounting applications.
Other features that distinguish the LC-45GD6U: HDMI, DVI-I and 2 HD component video inputs, a PC Card slot which allows you to record and view still images and a video on a PC Card, and the next generation of Sharp's proprietary Quick Shoot video circuit, which enables a fast response time of less than 12ms.
