Sharp 32-inch Ultra-HD touchsceen packs IGZO and digital pen

Good things come in small packages, and Sharp's new 32-inch-class LCD touchscreen monitor delivers on just that. Featuring cutting-edge IGZO technology*, the new PN-K322B boasts an ultra-high-definition touch screen which delivers extraordinary 4K-resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) - four times the detail of full HD.

Combining IGZO technology with edge-lit LED backlighting, the new panel also sports a stylishly slender profile - only 36mm at its thickest point - the thinnest in its class.

The sleek and lightweight touch screen monitor is capable of recognising 10 touch points at once, allowing users to enjoy greater flexibility when interaction g with graphical content like photographs.

Forget putting pen to paper, the monitor's high-precision touch screen also comes with a touch pen. The PN-K322B's touch pen features an extra-small 2mm tip that enables users to easily underline text, add notations, draw illustrations, and make amendments to onscreen content. To prevent unwanted contact when the user' palm is resting on the touch screen, a palm cancellation function can be selected to proprieties pen input.

Mark Beard, National marketing Manager for Sharp Corporation of Australia said the sleek and lightweight monitor was developed to blend effortlessly into any location.

"Sharp's new LCD touchscreen monitor wasn't designed for anyone, it was designed for everyone. Its ultra-high-definition screen and multiple touchscreen functions were developed to ensure the screen can be used across various professions, from post production editing, to museums and galleries," Beard said.

The PN-K322B can be set up in a vertical (90 degree) or low-angle (24 degree) position with the use of a dedicated stand that allows the monitor to slide easily between the two angles. The vertical set-up enables easy viewing of the monitor, whereas the low-angle set-up is ideal for touchscreen operation and onscreen writing.

As Sharp's proprietary IGZO technology supports increased pixel transparency and reduced current leakage, the monitor operates with a mere 93W power consumption. The Sharp PN-K322B (750w x 493h x 390d mm with the stand at 90 degrees), RRP $8,800, is available via specialist resellers in November 2013.
