Hitachi Unveils 50-Inch Ultra Thin 1.5-inch Plasma Display

Posted by at 10:10 am on September 4, 2008

Hitachi has unveiled the first plasma display panel in its UltraThin “1.5” family. This new plasma will be offered in a 50-inch screen size, making it among the largest in the UltraThin category. It is one of the world’s thinnest, at approximately one-third the depth of other plasma displays.

While other companies, including Hitachi, have already developed UltraThin LCD models, Hitachi is among the first vendors to demonstrate an UltraThin plasma display.  Per Hitachi, for a variety of technical reasons, the challenges in producing a thin plasma display greatly exceed those associated with developing a thin LCD.

“The industry theme of ‘Thin is In’ continues apace and Hitachi was one of the first to propel this trend,” said Daniel Lee, vice president of marketing for Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc. “Hitachi’s goal is to offer consumers more choice and greater flexibility. That means LCD or plasma.”
