According to Insight Media‘s Ken Werner, Senior Analyst and Editor, the awesome LCD panel that goes into PhilipsCinema 21:9 is manufactured by Sharp. Sharp is producing the ultra-wide LCD panels (both 52″ and 56″) that sport a pixel format of 2560 x 1080 at its G8 TFT LCD fab at Kameyama Plant No. 2. As you may already know the Cinema 21:9 is a Europe-only model. The 21:9 aspect ratio LCD panel will most likely be Sharp’s high-end ASV (Advanced Super View); it sports an super-fast response time of just 1ms (GTG). A 200Hz frequency is implemented for motion-blur reduction. Although the economy is not doing as well as we would all hope there is probably a market for a high-end LCD TV like the Cinema 21:9. All the new slim LCD TVs with bumped-up specifications are great but they are still just like any other in that they are 16:9. If you want a real film-like experience at home the Cinema 21:9 is to get. If you’re in Europe.
