Sharp Philippines Corporation is introducing an array of new products that will upgrade Filipino consumers' homes. SPC's newly announced roster consists of AQUOS LED 4K and 8K television series, and the Super Premium IoT (Internet of Things) Inverter Air Conditioner. In addition, SPC announced its "locally made products" campaign.

Following the release of the world's first 8K display to the B2C market last October, Sharp is setting its eye on leading the 8K display industry by announcing the launch of its AQUOS 8K LED TV in the Philippines. Offering ultra-high definition with 16 times the resolution of Full HD, Sharp's 8K TVs promise to deliver images that showcase ultra-fine details which the naked eye cannot capture. AQUOS 8K LED TVs are currently distributed in China, Japan, Taiwan, and the European market.

Meanwhile, the Super Premium IoT Inverter Air Conditioner features Smart Control which uses IoT functions that can be controlled via iOS and Android devices under a Wi-Fi connection. Aside from this, the new air conditioner keeps proven and trusted Sharp technologies, one of which is the J-Tech Inverter Technology which allow precisely controlled power consumption, resulting in energy-efficient operation and cost savings. Equally important is the Plasmacluster Ion Technology which deactivates harmful airborne microbes and other contaminants present inside homes.

Besides the introduction of new products, SPC announced the launch of its campaign aiming to showcase Philippine-made goods. SPC is proud to reveal that Sharp LED TVs, washing machines, videoke systems, and electric fans are manufactured locally.

"This activity will contribute to the local firm that will benefit the Filipino family and result in a stronger economy," said Kazuo Kito, President and General Manager of SPC. The company believes that supporting local will improve the Philippine economy and will inspire Filipino workers to double their production.

SPC projects that sales for fiscal 2018 will increase by 20% year-on-year, with LED TV sales increasing by 40 percent.
