Recently, the official launch of the Sharp Aquos XU Series was held that the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-la. We no longer have to wait for the future because 8K is Now! Television has been our best company growing up and the technology that pushes the viewing experience is getting bigger and better! From huge clunky CRT televisions to flat screens and surround sound, the race towards providing a better TV viewing experience is what drives companies like Sharp to work hard to stay ahead of its game.

Sharp made history as it unveiled its latest product that pushes the boundaries of high-resolution TV Technology. While 4K resolution has been the industry standard, Sharp has taken the leap to deliver 8K resolution with the Sharp Aquos XU Series.

The TV is impressive and the colors are vibrant! What caught my eye though is the high tech remote control that it has. You do not want to lose this remote, trust me. It has a touch pad that allows you to manipulate the controls with a swipe or twirl of your finger! then there’s Android TV too. I’m sold!

Don’t take my word for it though – take the word of an award winning and critically acclaimed director, Raymond Red. He took the TV out for a spin and came back with an AVP that blew everyone in the room away. He used miniatures and used the TV as a backdrop. I didn’t even know what the difference was. I thought the mini cars were real and that they were shot at a location somewhere.

Joining the affair were the top brass of Sharp:

  • Sharp President and General Manager, Mr. Takahiro Tanaka;
  • Sharp Electronics Malaysia Division General Manager for AV Systems Business Center, Mr. Toshio Kawata;
  • Sharp Executive Vice President for Sales, Mr. Emmanuel Valencia;
  • Sharp Executive Vice President for Manufacturing and Business Administration, Mr. Kazuo Kito;
  • Sharp Vice President for Marketing and Sales Operations, Mr. Satoshi Chujo, and;
  • Sharp Vice President for New Business Development, Mr. Tomoki Ueshima.

When the top people are here to present their product, you KNOW it’s really something that they believe in and fully support.

Hosting the show was columnist and interior designer, Tessa Prieto Valdes and showing the features of the new Aquos XU series was host and TV lover, KC Montero.
