Sharp says new TV is thinnest yet.
Japan's Sharp has unveiled a prototype of what it called the world's thinnest LCD TV with a main display section only 20 mm thick.
The 25 kg TV was designed with digitalization and Web-based TV in mind as consumers look for high definition models that can be mounted on walls, Sharp president Mikio Katayama said.
He said the 50-inch TV would consume 140 kilowatts of power per year, based on a typical household's viewing pattern, compared with consumption of 233 kWh by Sharp's current LC-37 P55E 37-inch set.
He could not say when the super-thin TV would be available.
