    Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, will introduce a new 32-inch-class (31.5" diagonal) LCD LED monitor, the PN-K322B. The thinnest in its class, this professional-use monitor features a Sharp developed high-sensitivity, high-precision touchscreen and delivers 4K Ultra HD resolution (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) - four times the pixel resolution of Full HD.

    As previewed at InfoComm and CE Week earlier this summer, the PN-K322B is Sharp's latest 4K Ultra HD monitor. Its high-precision touchscreen allows accurate onscreen handwriting of fine text and lines, with writing performed via a dedicated touch pen with a pen-tip width of just 2 mm. The display also supports up to 10-point multi-touch operation.

    "4K ultra high definition monitors offer a clear, near lifelike picture, and because of this, we are seeing a growing demand for these displays in many industries, including graphic and video content, creation and editing. The touchscreen feature takes these displays one step further, widening their applications to these markets and others," said Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President, Business Solutions Group. "We are looking to expand this cutting-edge technology into additional sectors that could benefit from its clarity and interactivity, such as financial services, retail and museum/art exhibitions."

    Built with Sharp's IGZO technology and an edge lit LED backlight, the PN-K322B boasts a slender profile with a thickness of just 36 mm. A stand, included with the monitor, allows it to slide easily between two angles depending on the application: vertical for viewing or low-angle for onscreen writing and touchscreen operation.

    The PN-K322B features a palm cancellation function that prioritizes pen input even when the user's hand is resting on the touchscreen. Input connectors on the PN-K322B are compatible with the latest DisplayPort and HDMI interface specifications, enabling the monitor to display ultra high definition content delivered from a PC via a single-cable connection.

    The PN-K322B will be available in the U.S. this fall.

    HDMI can only really output 24 Hz/30 Hz.
    DisplayPort SST can also only output 24 Hz/30 Hz.
    DisplayPort MST can output 60 Hz.

    At the 2160p resolution you would need double the amount of TMUs and ROPs.
    128/32 -> 256/64

    Displayport can output 4k @ 60Hz...

    The issue is the lack of a controller capable to deliver 4k @ 60Hz to the panel.

    Dual link dvi can do it. Why they don't use that is past me.
