World's First 14-Inch Color TFT LCD

By continuously building on the R&D efforts that had led to the introduction of the LCD pocket calculator in 1973 and by advancing technology developed for a three-inch LCD color TV, Sharp ultimately succeeded in producing a prototype 14-inch color TFT LCD. That development represented a significant milestone for Sharp LCD technology. In 1990, the Eduard Rhein Technology Award, referred to in Europe as the Nobel Prize of the AV world, was bestowed on this display.
