Sharp Electronics has plans to hold events at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, starting this weekend.
On display at the 2015 International CES, Sharp Electronics’ AQUOS 4K Ultra HD TV lineup for 2015 – with quadruple the number of models across seven screen sizes (43 inches to 80 inches) versus 2014 – will feature several models with design and performance innovations that will enable reductions in screen thickness even at very large screen sizes.
The Lincoln nameplate has not been without high-end sound systems. Although some Lincoln vehicles are on the forgettable side (Zephyr?), that same vehicle was the first to have a THX-certified audio system from the factory.
The ten leaders that rock: Jim Minarik, Noel Lee, Bill Stewart, Jim Ristow, Bob Abt, Fred Towns, Ron Freeman, Thomas Bamrick, John Herrington, Soren Mills

Panasonic is rolling out now and through the summer months a 2014 TV lineup that includes 4K but focuses on LED, saying the technologies embedded in the sets move beyond conventional smart TV concepts and indeed, beyond Panasonic’s own 2013 Smart Viera platform to offer intuitive control and automation of smart functions with voice and visual prompts triggered by what the set “learns” of user preferences.
