Sharp Middle East has announced its new local distribution partnership, for its visual solutions business, with Stage Audio Works at the launch of the new 90-inch professional LED display in Randburg on 20 November.

The partnership enables Stage Audio Works to distribute Sharp Professional Displays throughout the commercial and technology markets across Sub-Saharan Africa. Stage Audio Works will offer a complete demonstration and service facility to promote Sharp’s visual solutions business.

“There is a growing demand for versatile LED displays in the region, and Sharp is dedicated to meeting the needs of customers by offering the latest products with our newest technologies which are a result of 100 years of Sharp innovation and development,’ said Tomoo Shimizu, Director of Business Solutions Division at Sharp Middle East. “Stage Audio Works is the ideal partner to give South Africa a first look at our upcoming products within our visual business portfolio, and how these can add value while being easily integrated into a company’s existing set up.’

While celebrating its 100 years milestone of innovation, a key highlight for the audio-visual professionals was the first look at the new Ultra large size screens, which slot into the company’s existing line up of LED displays, topped by the flagship 90-inch LED screen. With the advent of Sharp’s new 90-inch display, the company’s product line-up is now complete, allowing customers to experience the full range of large-size LED LCD screens which range from the 60-inch up to the gigantic 108-inch display.

Sharp is not only showcasing the ultra large size monitors, but also focusing on versatility with some of its first look products for the region. At the launch, Sharp also showcased one of its future technological advancements, the 19.5-inch touch monitor. The new touch monitor utilises Microsoft Windows 8 operating system to combine with a 10-point touch screen function to provide a wide range of industry applications.

Partnering with Sharp can only guarantee exciting developments for the future as touch and display technologies evolve,’ says Will Deysel , Managing Director for Stage Audio Works.
