Sharp to put 108" LCD TV into production

Sharp has brought all three of the firm's existing 108" LCD TVs to Hannover. Previously shown at CES in Las Vegas earlier this year, the company now said that it is planning to sell "customizable" versions of the TV.

Of course, at this stage, the three TVs remain prototypes and have not yet received model numbers. Each 108" TV was produced from one 8G glass panel and covers a screen area of 94" x 53". According to Sharp, the TV effectively shows not just a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels), but 2160p (4096 x 2160 pixels).

The story is too old to be commented.

OMG!! That's RIDICULOUS I WANT lol 2160P? That's 3 times the amount of resolution I see now, my god that has got to look absolutely fantastic

I guess for a ridiculously huge TV it would look good, since 1080p wouldn't be enough for something so big... but I don't have the $50-70 grand or so to get one :P, and 1080p probably looks the same at smaller screen sizes.

Put Halo 3 on THAT bad boy and see what happens!

Just out of curiosity, what would something like that cost? Weigh? How would you display/mount it?

As a comparison, Sony unveiled a 70" LCD, and it was priced at a measely $33,000. This would be over $50 G's.
