Sharp Bringing OS X-Compatibility to New 32" 4K Touchscreen Monitor

Sharp has announced that its 32" 4K touchscreen monitor will eventually have drivers for full OS X touchscreen support, reports Japanese site Mac Otakara [Google Translate] (via 9to5Mac).

Sharp 4K Touchscreen Monitor
The display, which is aimed at retail/commercial applications (PDF), sports a 3840x2160 IGZO LCD panel and includes a capacitative touch interface and pen support. Sharp demonstrated the display running off an Apple notebook at the CEATEC Japan trade show earlier this month.

Sharp demonstrated the panel at CES earlier this year, though it wasn't running OS X at the time:

A 32" iPad? What will be the applications beyond enterprise?


I wonder if we'll see iOS in more retail/commercial applications/situations?


That display is running OSX off a Macbook Pro. It's not IOS.

With Apple removing custom HiDPI modes for external monitors on Mavericks, that is going to be a very limited user experience. :mad::apple:


I expect Mavericks to be a buggy mess considering the same team helped with iOS 7. :rolleyes:
