Elegant Design and HD Performance

Full HD LCD Panel

The LC-40D78UN features full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution, for the sharpest picture possible. The CCFL-backlit LCD panel provides high contrast ratios for deep blacks and vibrant colors during both dark and bright scenes.

High brightness means you can position the LC-40D78UN virtually anywhere--near a window, a door or other light source--and the picture is still vivid. A wide 176-degree viewing angle means the whole family gets to enjoy it.

Built-in Tuners

The LC-40D78UN includes ATSC/NTSC tuners to receive off-air broadcasts, as well as digital cable QAM capability for receiving non-scrambled digital cable programming. It's ready for available DTV and analog TV programming.

Three HDMI Inputs

For convenient connection to digital devices, three HDMI inputs are provided, along with two HD component inputs, for a grand total of five 1080p compatible inputs. A pair of composite inputs is also provided for non-HD sources.

120Hz Fine Motion Advanced

Sharp uses a unique algorithm to create images that help smooth sharp edges on moving objects, like a running play in football, a player swinging a bat or a car chase. By creating new images and filling in the gaps, motion appears smoother and less jumpy. The result is a smoother picture with more detail.

Sharp LC-40D78UN Gaming Mode
Vyper Drive game mode helps to eliminate the lag time between the game console and TV.
OPC (Optical Picture Control)

Most television viewing does not take place under perfect lighting conditions--sometimes you watch TV with daylight streaming in the windows, and other times you watch in the middle of the night while your spouse tries to sleep beside you. Sharp's OPC (Optical Picture Control) system automatically adjusts the TV's brightness level based on ambient light, so you'll be able to see a bright picture in a bright room and a not too bright one when the room is pitch black--automatically. Think of OPC as an automatic light-sensing dimmer for your television.

Vyper Drive

Vyper Drive game mode helps to eliminate the lag time between the game console and TV. When Game Mode is activated, the signal is streamlined resulting in transmission 5x faster than normal mode.

Solid Audio

A pair of bottom-mounted speakers provide 16 Watts (8w + 8w) of audio, enough to fill most rooms. Sharp's "Sound Surround" feature creates a surround effect using just two speakers.

Wall-Mount Ready

Easily remove the included table stand and you're ready for wall-mounting.
