Hitachi Display Products Group (DPG) is unveiling a series of new TFT display modules due for introduction to the European market. The first showing of the new display modules was at Electronica in November 2008.
A 6.5-inch VGA TFT, a 7.0-inch WVGA TFT and an 8.0-inch WVGA TFT - with the WVGA displays both featuring Hitachi's IPS Pro technology - are scheduled to be released to the European market during 2009. Also announced are two high-resolution displays targeting medical and professional monitoring applications: the new 19-inch WSXGA+ and a 21.2-inch QXGA TFT display module, which also feature IPS-Pro technology.
Hitachi claims that its continuous improvement of IPS LCD technology now provides the best LCD products on the market for professional, high-end and multi-user imaging. The latest evolution, IPS-Pro, is described as delivering exceptional colour saturation, colour stability, excellent contrast and deeper black levels, with a 176-degree wide vertical and horizontal viewing angle.
