With the addition of the yellow sub-pixel, light is able to pass through more easily, you'll get a brighter image than standard 3D. Sharp Quattron™ 3D will ensure you have the brightest, clearest picture at all times. Since active shutter glasses dim the image the extra "natural" brightness, from the yellow sub-pixel, makes active 3D even more viable.
Sharp 3D TVs come with 2 pairs of AN3DG40 Active 3D glasses. Your Active 3D glasses allow you to switch from 3D to 2D any time you without affecting other viewers in the room. With Sharp 3D, everyone gets what they desire.

AQUOS LED Full HD 1080p Display
This LED has an advanced 1080p pixel structure that brings you the most amazing images in High Definition. It uses photo-alignment technology that is made to let more light through in bright scenes and block out more light in dark scenes. The 1080p AQUOS Smart TV has a 12 million: 1 contrast ratio and creates an image so real you can see the difference.
The latest addition to Sharp's image-enhancing technologies. Super Bright works similar to many dimming technologies, the engine scans the image and dims the darker areas, Sharp reversed this with the process for their 8 series LEDs. This technology takes the new high-brightness panel and intelligent contrast engine and enhances the brightness of the bright objects on the screen while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the image. The result is a more brilliant, more contrasted picture.
240Hz Refresh Rate
240Hz technology delivers a crystal-clear image even during fast-motion scenes. Experience all of the action on your LC-80LE857U Smart LED with one of the most advanced panel refresh rates available today.
The 8 series also features Sharp's AquoMotion 960 backlight scanning technology that effectively quadruples the refresh rate to limit ghosting and other issues caused by fast-moving scenes in LED TVs. The backlight scans the image in 4 separate zones and inserts a black frame to reduce motion blur.
Auto Brightness Control (OPC)
Cut power consumption and get a more beautiful and comfortable picture to watch with Sharp AQUOS' Auto Brightness Control. The LC-80LE857U Smart LED by Sharp automatically adjusts the picture brightness to the light in the room.
