Sharp’s New Five Color LCD Display Faithfully Renders Real World Images

In the quest for the ultimate picture quality, it was only a matter of time before an LCD manufacturer added cyan and yellow into the mix.

According to a press release issued by the company, their five-primary-color LCD is able to accurately reproduce over 99% of colors. Formerly difficult to render colors such as the golden yellow of brass instruments, the emerald blue of the sea and crimson red of roses are now able to be created on the screen without issue.

At the moment the technology is focused on industrial uses such as digital archiving and remote medical care, but Sharp is hard at work making the display cost efficient enough for practical applications. We’ll certainly be waiting with baited breath for the day this technology is available to consumers.
