**New for 2015. Sharp’s LC-70UH30U 70-inch LED backlit 4K Ultra HD TV is Sharp’s best TV for 2015. It includes the Revelation™ 4K Upscaler to watch current 1080p and 720p content and upscale it to take advantage of the Ultra HD resolution. The UH30 Series is a THX® 4K Certified TV, one of the few that passed the rigorous testing. Dynamic contrast is 10,000,000:1. This 4K Resolution TV has 4 times the number of pixels (8 million) than Full HD TVs (which only have 2 million pixels). This is almost the same resolution as movie theater 4K projectors. Included on this TV is 120Hz with Sharp’s best AquoMotion 960 anti-blur technology, which helps with sports and fast moving action. The UH30 Series is the only Sharp TV with a SPECTROS™ Rich Color Display for a 21% wider color spectrum, producing more vibrant and diverse colors. This TV also has the AquoDimming™ local dimming feature, for darker blacks, and whiter whites, while improving contrast.
