32-Inch Class LED Monitor Boasts Unprecedented Ultra-High Definition
Sharp’s new professional-use PN-K321 LED monitor heralds an entirely new generation of displays that incorporate Sharp’s cutting-edge
IGZO* technology. This technology offers two major advantages: extraordinarily high resolution and energy efficiency.
At 3,840 x 2,160 pixels (Ultra-HD), the PN-K321 boasts four times the pixel resolution of 1080p full HD. Users can now view the content of
four full HD screens on a single, seamless display. This super-high resolution makes the monitor ideally suited to a wide range of professional
applications in settings where detailed information needs to be displayed with tremendous precision.
IGZO technology supports increased pixel transparency and reduced current leakage, resulting in lower power consumption.
* IGZO (InGaZnO) is an oxide comprising indium (In), gallium (Ga), and zinc (Zn).
Thin and Stylish
Ultra-High Resolution
Sharp’s new professional-use LED monitor
owes its stylish and slender design to IGZO
technology and edge-lit LED backlighting.
Measuring only about 35 mm at its thickest
point, this sleek and lightweight monitor
blends in effortlessly in almost any location.
The PN-K321 comes with a stand and offers
a choice of landscape or portrait
installation*, allowing users to select the
mode that best suits their display content
and application.
The small size of semiconductors made with IGZO technology
enables smaller-sized pixels, which in turn provide stunning
high resolution.

The transmittance of an IGZO TFT (thin-film transistor)
is superior to that of an a-Si (amorphous silicon) TFT.
* The monitor must be unscrewed from the stand when
switching between landscape and portrait installations.
Simple, Advanced Interface
24/7 Operation
The PN-K321 supports both DisplayPort and HDMI. Ultra-high
resolution video signals can be transmitted via a single
easy-connecting, clutter-reducing cable.
The PN-K321 is ideal for use in demanding professional applications
that require around-the-clock operation seven days a week.
