Sharp’s AQUOS LE820 Gets DivX Certified

The Quattron TVs just got a bit more attractive.

You’ve heard plenty about Sharp’s new Quattron televisions by now. They add a fourth color - yellow - to the spectrum, which allows for richer colors and more accurate pictures.

I saw the technology at CES and it looked great, but it was hard to tell if it looked better. Without two otherwise similar TVs showing the same source material, it’s hard to tell. Sure, the Caribbean beach footage on Sharp’s TVs looked more colorful than 'The Dark Knight' demo on Sony’s, but that’s not saying much.

Still, the LE820 just got a little more attractive with the addition of DivX certification. It’s the first set from Sharp to have it, though it’s not a new feature for HDTVs. Sharp’s new TVs will play not only DivX files but DivX HD files.

A bit of added functionality never hurts, and DivX certification means that the LE820 has been tested and found acceptable.
