A Sharp big wig, Shigeaki Mizushima, has gone on record stating that his company is committed to developing TVs that consume less energy than current offerings. Sharp has done it in the past by cutting its 2005 TVs’ power consumption in half over model year 2000 and plan on doing it again ’cause it’s the responsible thing to do.
TV sizes are growing to be larger than 30 inches, and the number of TVs is also increasing. However, it’s unjust to simply take it for granted that power consumption should increase as the size of TVs grows, it is important to keep the power consumption of large TVs as low as that of smaller ones.
If there is one thing LCDs are good at, it’s power management. And Sharp knows LCDs.
