LAS VEGAS, USA Sharp unveiled its world’s first 108-inch AQUOS LCD TV at the press conference on January 7 during CES 2007. According to Sharp, this 108-inch LCD screen, which measures 93.9-inches high by 52.9-inches wide, features a Black Advanced Super View Full-Spec HD LCD panel manufactured at Sharp’s Kameyama Plant No. 2.
