OSAKA -  Sharp Corp. said Thursday it will release in January a 90-inch liquid crystal display for digital signage that is capable of showing a person at full height.

The display, measuring 2 meters by 1.2 meters, is the first of its kind for use mainly by businesses and will go on sale on Jan. 28 for a price of around 2.6 million yen, a company official said.

Sharp developed the model after finding that its 108-inch model, already on sale, was difficult to move as it is too big to fit in conventional elevators.

The electronic appliance maker said 60-inch and 70-inch models will also be launched beginning on Jan. 28
