Sharp Electronics said this week that its first 3D LCD televisions were now arriving in Canadian stores.

The Aquos Quattron LE925 series employs Sharp's quad pixel technology, which adds the colour yellow to the traditional red, green and blue (RGB) TV colour filter, and is available in 52 and 60 inch sizes.

Additional features of the new 3D sets include Sharp's then (1.6 inch) next generation LCD Panel with 1920 x 1080p resolution, quadruple frame rates (240Hz) to reduce blur and motion artifacts, edge-light LED lighting, 4ms response time, Energy Star V5.1 certification, 4 HDMI inputs, USB media player and Ethernet connectivity.

Each model also include two sets of infra-red, active shutter glasses which feature a 3D-2D conversion button on the glasses which lets viewers toggle back and forth between 3D and 2D imagery.

Internet and multimedia features include built in access to the Netflix™ streaming video service (sold separately) and a built-in USB media player for viewing digital video, music and photos.

The 52 inch LC-52LE925UN and 60 inch LC-60LE925UN are now available at retailers nationwide for $4,000 and $5,000 respectively.
