The Sharp 8K TV is the first ever commercially available 8K television set. First unveiled at CES 2015 earlier this year, the panel offers a resolution that is 16 times that of Full High Definition. Unsurprisingly, this television is expected to be highly expensive.

This television panel features a truly incredible resolution of 7,680 x 4,320, not to mention a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 and 176 degree viewing angles.

The mindblowing full 8K resolution makes use of as many pixels as four 4K panels working together. It is achieved via the utilization of a quadrant of HDMI 2.0 inputs, each of which contributes an Ultra HD 3,840 x 2,160 picture.

At $133,000, this TV is initially aimed at professionals rather than regular consumers, and it is expected to be used to test how well 8K broadcasts work down the road.
