The AQUOS Q series offers full HD resolution, powered by a dual-core processor and Sharp's proprietary Quattron™ color technology - an additional yellow pixel gives this television more colors, greater details, and enhances your viewing experience, while offering a brighter screen with less energy consumption. Sharp's new 2014 LED TVs also received a smart TV platform update to SmartCentral 3.0; this includes faster web browsing and searches, more applications, enhanced mobile device integration, and content recommendation. Sharp's 2014 AQUOS Q LED TVs are available in 60- (LC-60EQ10U) and 70-inch (LC-70EQ10U) screen sizes.

Picture Quality

Sharp AQUOS Q LED TVs with Quattron™ technology offers one of the best picture qualities available on a big screen TV. It's loaded with a Full HD 1080p panel with a 240Hz refresh rate, an 8 million : 1 contrast ratio, multiple video inputs for your favorite high-definition devices and Quattron™ technology for unmatched color accuracy and vibrancy.

Quattron™ Full HD 1080p: Sharp makes one of the best HDTV panels available; their AQUOS LEDs have an advanced pixel structure that uses photo-alignment technology to shut out more light in dark scenes and allow more light through on bright scenes. Sharp full HD TVs provide a clearer, richer picture that's so real you can see the difference. This is achieved by employing some of the best panel technologies available. Sharp AQUOS Q LED TV YRGB

Quattron™ Technology: Quattron™ color technology adds an additional yellow subpixel to the standard red, green, and blue pixel structure of conventional HDTVs - which makes perfect sense! By adding the yellow subpixel, Sharp increased the subpixel count by 2 million, or 33%, more than full HD; the result for you is finer details and a billion more shades of color. A conventional HD TV has 6 million subpixels, Sharp LED TVs with Quattron™ have over 8 million subpixels. You'll experience deeper blacks, whiter whites, and bolder, more vibrant colors on screen. An added benefit of Sharp's Quattron™ technology is a brighter display that doesn't wash-out or over-saturate colors seen on-screen and it uses less power than a standard HDTV. Sharp Quattron™ technology ensures you'll see brighter yellows, deeper blues, richer golds, and other colors like never before

Optical Picture Control (OPC): Optical Picture Control, or OPC, is Sharp's ambient light sensor that measures light surrounding the television and automatically adjusts the screens backlight accordingly.

Enhanced Noise Reduction: Enhanced noise reduction removes the unwanted video noise from ANALOG and SD signals that have been upscaled to display at full-screen. It smooths the edges of objects bringing the image closer to HD quality; this option can be controlled in the picture settings.

Dual-Core Processor: The AQUOS Q is loaded with a powerful dual-core processor that helps product sharp images with accurate color and reduced motion blur. The additional core also enables multi-tasking and faster browsing and search results.

8 Million : 1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: An 8 Million : 1 contrast ratio means the brightest white is 8 million times brighter than the darkest black. Many TV manufacturers use the backlight's luminance as a major factor in determining contrast ratio without consideration of "washed-out" colors caused by the backlight's intensity. Sharp's main consideration for contrast ratio includes the natural brightness from a yellow pixel; in English, Sharp's LED TVs are closer to "real-world" contrast.

240Hz Refresh Rate: The EQ10, AQUOS Q, features a 240Hz panel that virtually eliminates motion blur and delivers advanced clarity, especially during fast-motion scenes. In the time it takes a standard TV to create 1 image, Sharp AQUOS LEDs with Quattron™ technology create 4! The processors calculate the next on-screen movement and fills in additional frames for seamless motion. Imagine being able to discern the letters and name on a sports player's jersey as they sprint by the camera or finally noticing that fast flying "UFO" is a hummingbird.

Inputs/Outputs: AQUOS Q LEDs feature a plethora of high-definition inputs like component, HDMI, and even USB. Sharp makes it easy for you to connect all your favorite components for the ultimate home entertainment experience.

HDMI: HDMI is the best high-definition connection available; it can carry a lossless surround sound signal and many are capable of carrying 3D and 4K video signals. With (4) four HDMI inputs you have enough room for your favorite console or media player, an AV receiver, a cable/satellite box, or anything else you'd like to access through your TV. The HDMI inputs are capable of enhanced features like ARC and MHL.

Sharp AQUOS Q (4) HDMI Inputs
ARC (HDMI 1): ARC, or Audio Return Channel, allows an audio signal to travel two directions, upstream and downstream. This makes it easier to get content from an external device, like a Blu-ray disc player, through an AV receiver up to the TV for further processing. Before ARC, audio was only able to be sent downstream to an AV receiver, then to external speakers or another device; in essence, to use a device connected to an AV receiver and listen to the audio through the TVs speakers, you would need an additional audio cable to carry the sound "upstream" to the TV. ARC allows that audio signal to travel through the HDMI input back to the TV, no additional cables or accessories required.
MHL (HDMI 4): In a world of mobile media, it makes sense to have movies and videos on your phone; people download movies and shows on their cellphones and tablet PCs all the time. In fact, more than 40% of the videos on YouTube are viewed on mobile devices than any other form of technology. MHL, or Mobile High-definition Link, is a newer wired standard for data transfer between mobile devices and your TV. You can enjoy high-definition videos, images, and audio files from your mobile device on your Sharp AQUOS LED - improved with Quattron™ color technology. You can also use your existing TV remote to access and select content on your mobile device.

Component: The component input on a high-definition television is the next best input you should use to carry a full HD resolution, after HDMI of course. This input requires (5) five RCA connections; red, green, and blue RCA carry the video signal, and separate red and white to carry the audio signal. Unlike HDMI, the component input can only carry a stereo, or left and right, audio signal; you'll need to use the optical input to carry a lossless surround sound signal.
Composite: There are (2) composite video inputs; these inputs offer the lowest quality video signal, standard-definition (480i or 576i). Composite video inputs are mostly used for devices that only support standard-definition video. Always use an HD input when available. If you only have the option to use the composite input, you should learn how to calibrate your TV's basic picture settings. Pay extra attention to the sharpness setting when calibrating non-HD video sources. Just like the component input, the composite can only carry a stereo audio signal.

USB: Sharp AQUOS TVs feature (2) two USB inputs that are used for software updates and playing digital media, like photos, movies, and music. The device connected to the USB input can be a USB memory stick/thumb drive, USB card reader (mass storage device), or a USB hard drive; your smartphone or tablet PC also classify as mass storage devices.

RF (Antenna): If you have a set-top box from your cable or satellite provider, there won't be anything plugged into this input; the coaxial cable plugs into your set-top box for audio and video processing, then sent to the TV through the HDMI, component, or composite video output. This output is generally occupied by a standard antenna, or bunny-ears.

PC Input (VGA): Sharp AQUOS TVs make it easy to connect a computer or laptop to your TV with a VGA PC input. This input is for PC video and doesn't carry an audio signal; PC audio uses the 3.5mm auxiliary input.

Smart TV and Convenience Features

2014 Sharp LED TVs have the same features and connectivity options as last year, e.g. flash-enabled web browser, built-in Wi-Fi, split-screen+web, etc. However, 2014 Sharp smart TVs have a clear advantage over last year, a new and improved SmartCentral platform and interface, SmartCentral 3.0.

SmartCentral 3.0: Thanks to Sharp's continued efforts to bring you the best viewing experience possible, all 2014 Sharp TVs have SmartCentral 3.0 (2014); this software update brings a set of new and updated tricks, to help you find and access your favorite content faster. They achieve this with a new global search, integrated guides, streaming applications and games, and enhanced smartphone and tablet connectivity. Sharp smart TVs with SmartCentral 3.0 brings the content to you!2014 Sharp SmartCentral 3.0 User Interface

Smart/Streaming Applications: Sharp's SmartCentral has the best applications for your smart TV. You get instant access to streaming video services like Netflix and Hulu Plus, music services like Pandora and Rhapsody, social applications and the best of gaming on your TV.

Global Search and Integrated Guide: SmartCentral 3.0 features a new integrated guide powered by a global search; the two functions together to help you discover new and old content based on your preferences. One search query will return results for shows and movies from your cable/satellite provider and streaming services. The global search and integrated guide feature allows you to search by title, genre, time and popularity. SmartCentral lets you spend less time "surfing" and more time watching and enjoying.

Improved Smartphone and Tablet Connectivity: Sharp's SmartCentral mobile application turns your mobile device into the best remote control you'll ever use. Sharp's free mobile application gives you new and intuitive ways to control your TV. Virtually everything you do on your TV can be done from your mobile device; engage the global search function, discover new content, access the TV guide, and more beyond the basic functions of a remote control.

MiraCast: MiraCast is a wireless display protocol that allows you to easily mirror the screen contents of mobile device or laptop on your TV, in high-definition; this feature is currently supported by select Android and Microsoft devices.

Built-in Wi-Fi: Every Sharp AQUOS TV has built-in Wi-Fi that allows you to wirelessly connect to the Internet and enable wireless media sharing with other devices on your home network. Sharp AQUOS Q DLNA Media Compatibility Chart

DLNA: DLNA is another wireless streaming feature that is available across a multitude of devices. This feature allows you to use an existing wireless connection, Wi-Fi, to stream media between devices. This means you can stream from anywhere in your home to your TV, as long as both devices are on the same network.

Flash-Enabled Web Browser: Just like your mobile device, laptop, or desktop PC, all browsers are created differently; many of them require additional plug-ins so they're more compatible with certain functions of some websites (generally sites with animations). Sharp Smart AQUOS LEDs feature a flash-enabled web browser so every website is bigger, better, and more beautiful than you've ever seen.

Split-Screen Web + TV: The problem with watching TV and browsing the web from your mobile device or PC is that your eyes will never be on both screens at the same time. Who wants to wait for anything; especially when you can "have your cake and eat it too?" Sharp's split-screen web plus TV allows you to watch TV and browse your favorite website at the same time, on one screen. Now you can order your pizza and watch TV without missing a beat.

AQUOS Advantage Live (AAL): AQUOS Advantage Live is Sharp's remote access, customer support service for your AQUOS TV. A team of expert advisors are on stand-by to remotely assist you with optimizing settings, adjusting your TV, checking connections, and testing signals. Sharp's goal is to ensure you have the best worry-free viewing experience.

Automatic Software Updates: Who doesn't hate when their electronics begin to run slowly because you failed to update the software? As long as your Sharp AQUOS is connected to the Internet, software updates happen automatically; no reminders or additional downloads needed.

Audio Features

Good movies are wasted without equally good audio. Try watching your favorite summer blockbuster on mute! So you agree that digital audio processing technology is as important as video processing technology.

Speaker Layout: AQUOS Q TVs feature (2) two down-firing speakers powered by a 20-watt amplifier. The AQUOS Q also has built-in audio enhancements so all your scenes sound as good as they look.

Auto Volume Control: Sharp's Auto Volume Control uses sophisticated software to measure and lower the volume of broadcast commercials to match the volume of the show/movie.

Clear Voice: Missing all the puns and pivotal moments of your favorite show because the actor's voice is lower than the rest of the audio track? Sharp's Clear Voice increases the volume of the dialogue in shows and movies so it's louder than the other ambient sounds.

Virtual Surround Sound: AQUOS Q TVs can receive a Dolby or DTS surround sound signal and process it to create a simulated surround sound experience through the TV's on-board speakers, or the signal can be sent to an external receiver or speaker for further processing.

Wall Mount Setting: Sharp AQUOS wall mount setting adjusts the audio settings to optimize the audio output of a TV mounted on the wall.

Inputs/Outputs: Audio inputs carry an audio signal to the TV for playback over the speakers or to be sent through the audio outputs to an external receiver or speaker system for further processing.

(3)Analog Audio Input: The Sharp AQUOS Q has a total of (3) three RCA analog audio inputs; they're "tied" to the composite and component video inputs, but you can still use them to receive an audio signal without a video connection. The analog audio inputs only carry a stereo audio signal.

3.5mm Audio Input: If you're interested in playing audio from an external device, like a home theater PC or an MP3 player, you'll use the 3.5mm auxiliary input; that signal can then be sent through the TV's audio output to an AV receiver or speaker system for further processing. Like all analog audio connections, this input only carries a stereo audio signal.

Digital Optical Output: Other than HDMI inputs, the optical digital audio output is the only other connection on this TV that's cable of carrying a lossless surround sound signal. In fact, you only need one digital audio output; the single optical output will carry the audio signal from everything that plays on your TV to an external receiver or home theater system for further surround sound processing.

3.5mm Audio Output: Most commonly known as the headphone output; this analog audio output will carry a stereo audio signal from the TV to any external device, including headphones and soundbar speaker systems, for playback.

Sharp AQUOS Q Thin Bezel Design

On average, Sharp TVs aren't just bigger, they offer more choices; that's to say Sharp allows you to go bigger than the "others." Most manufacturer's make 65-inch TVs and then jump to 75-inch TVs; many people can't spare nearly an extra foot of space. Sharp offers TVs that allow you to go bigger without going "overboard."

Slim LED TV: The AQUOS Q features a slim and sleek design that fits more screen into less space. It has a thinner bezel for maximum viewing pleasure and a display that's virtually edgeless. The contemporary design keeps the weight of the AQUOS Q under 100lbs; when the base is removed the AQUOS Q's less than 3.5" thick.

Edge-Lit LED: Sharp AQUOS TVs get their sleek figure from their edge-lit construction. Unlike conventional LCD TVs that put the LEDs directly behind the screen, Sharp AQUOS Q series has LEDs spread throughout the edges of the TV.

Wallpaper Mode: Sharp's wallpaper mode turns your AQUOS TV into a full HD, digital picture frame. Wallpaper mode works on extremely low power and displays a "slide show" of pre-installed art or your own photos.

Wall-Mountable TV: All Sharp AQUOS TVs are VESA compliant; this makes it easier to find a mount that's compatible with your TV.

Mounting Pattern: 400mm x 400mm

Energy Star TV: Thanks to great engineering, development, and Quattron™ technology, AQUOS Q is one of the brightest and most energy efficient TVs in its class.
