Total space between two screens is just 6.5mm.
Giant televisions are just plain cool, but you can only go so big before it all starts to get a little too difficult. Manufacturing just doesn't work at certain sizes, and cost, of course, goes up significantly. So we're left with a pair of choices: projectors and multi-screen displays.
Sharp's new multi-screen is an improvement over past offerings, but if you're not a multi-screen fan, this isn't going to change your mind. It uses the smallest bezels ever, but, well, they're still there. You've still got those black lines between each screen.
The way Sharp accomplished this was to put more of the wiring on the left and top of the set. The bezel is 4.1mm on those sides, but that allows for a 2.1mm bezel for the bottom and right. The result is a total of 6.5mm of space between the sets.
The displays are LED backlit and sport a 1,366 x 768 resolution. They've got plenty of inputs and the ability to zoom in on a picture.
The PN-V601 monitors will be available to Japanese customers at the end of August. A US release date and price are still unknown.
