Adding Y to RBG

As much hype at CES was all about 3D technology, I found that another important feature was completely overlooked, QuadPixel Technology.  Sharp has obviously done their homework on adding Yellow to the color range when they introduced this.  Quoting from their website "This four-primary-color video technology employs a four color filter, for the first time in the industry, that adds the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green), and B (blue)".  In a nut shell, they will be able to produce a staggering 1 Trillion colors on their new Edge Lit LED line of TV's utilizing the new Yellow sub-pixel along with reproducing colors that have been difficult to portray using the conventional RGB format.  This will also allow for a more vivid picture with more detail.  The LE920UN series will be a QuadPixel Edge Lit 1080P LED with 240Hz and the LE820UN will also have QuadPixel Technology but running at 120Hz.  Look for a complete update from us as soon as these hit our showrooms along with a few remaining questions we still have regarding their color choice.
