Economy

Osaka, April 15 (Jiji Press)--Sharp Corp. <6753> said Monday that it will release in stages three models of large interactive whiteboards equipped with 4K liquid crystal displays from the beginning of May.

In launching the three Big Pad models, Sharp anticipates demand from business users including architect offices, as the products are able to display small letters and drawings vividly.

Sharp hopes to speed up the introduction of 4K screens to interactive whiteboards through the expansion of its product lineup by adding the three new models, which differ in size, to the existing two models, which were released in and after 2017.

The 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch models will be priced between some 500,000 yen and 1.3 million yen.

Sharp adopted a new touch screen method to limit malfunctions on the new models.
