Additionally, these units include five HDMI™ inputs and two HD component terminals, all of which are compatible with 1080p signals from Blu-ray and other new devices, in addition to RS-232C for custom installations and a dedicated PC input.

The full E series is compliant with the most recent ENERGY STAR® standards and also offers energy savings through Sharp’s OPC function, to automatically adjust the unit’s brightness based on the lighting of the room. The models offer a new design, with a black cabinet that gives way to a soft gold hue that accents the bottom of the E77 series frame, and a subtle copper hue at the bottom of the E67 cabinet.
