Your Weather Photos, now on Sharp AQUOS TVs

May 26, 2010; 9:47 AM

We are always looking for more ways to promote the wonderful photos uploaded to the AccuWeather.com Photo Gallery from blog readers like you. We already promote them on AccuWeather.com Facebook and through AccuWeather.com TV, our digital tier cable channel (we do several slide shows every weekend -- you can also view them in our "Photo Montage" website video player).

Today I am excited to announce that owners of select Sharp AQUOS television sets can now see the best photos from on their TV screens. These high-end televisions can access the Internet and have a slide-show / screen-saver functionality to show high-resolution photos. One of the featured galleries within is now AccuWeather.com; the photos currently included are shown below.

Please click here to view all winning photos.

Each month, we'll add 10 more of the cream-of-the-crop photos to the AQUOS televisions. The first 20 photos are shown above (link through for high-res versions or more information on the photos or the photographers). If you own one of these TVs, we are one of the "Featured Content" when you click on the NET button twice.

Here's how it looks on-screen (these TVs are BIG -- this is the "little" model). Yes, I donated two of my own photos for this initial set. If you have high-resolution photos (1900x1200 minimum, no watermarks) that you'd like to see on the TV, upload them to the Photo Gallery today for consideration and we might choose them next month!

Taking a photo of a high-res TV with a low-res camera in bad lighting wasn't the greatest idea - my shirt looks brighter - but you get the idea of how it's displayed. Captions & titles for the photos are also available in French & Spanish because these TVs are sold outside of the U.S. Trust me when I say that the photos look unbelievably sharp and colorful because of the TV's unique technology that adds yellow to the typical R(ed)G(reen)B(lue) television display.
