Sharp Corporation is proud to announce the award-winning success of the 8K promo video produced by Sharp Electronics (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (SEM) and Tourism Malaysia. The video, titled ‘Amazing’, won the Special Award “MAGIC EYE” for Best Camerawork and a Gold Award in the Tourism & Travel Media category at the 21st WorldMediaFestivals.


The WorldMediaFestivals is an annual event held in in Hamburg, Germany to celebrate creativity in audiovisual, print and online production. Awards are given in two categories: Television & Corporate Media and Tourism & Travel Media. Because of travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 epidemic, the awards were held online this year.


Mr. Zulkifly Md Said, Director General of Tourism Malaysia, expressed his heartfelt congratulations upon receiving the good news. “This recognition would not be possible without the effort and assistance of everyone involved. To the production team, congratulations on this well-deserved achievement.”


“We look forward to having further collaborations with SHARP, hopefully in the nearest future. There are still so many attractions in Malaysia to be highlighted through the lens of SHARP, especially our off-the-beaten-track destinations, our rich flora and fauna, and our blessed natural resources,” Mr. Zulkifly added.


Mr. Robert Wu, SHARP Deputy CEO of ASEAN and Chairman of SEM, noted that the production of this award-winning video is significant because it is the first ever Visit Malaysia campaign video shot in 8K resolution.


“Our 8K technology enables unprecedented ultra-realistic resolution which reproduces images to appear physically present before a viewer’s eyes. This immersive visual experience is second to none and we are honored to be recognized in this award,” said Wu.


“SHARP will continue extending our support to Tourism Malaysia by showcasing the award-winning video across our global network through our AQUOS TV panels,” he added.
