The title of "biggest television" has gone to plasma TVs for years. So when a 108-inch Sharp TV -- an LCD TV, not plasma -- showed up at a trade show, the tech world took notice.
It used to be prohibitively expensive to produce very large LCD TVs. Sharp's "8th generation" factory in Japan has a production line that focuses entirely on large-screen AQUOS units.
This has helped to bring down the cost of production, partly through advanced energy conservation and partly through use of the world's largest glass substrates. A single piece of “motherglass” will yield eight 46-inch panels or six 52-inch panels for Sharp flat panel TVs.
