CEATEC 2008: Hitachi showcases superthin LCD TV

At CEATEC 2008, Hitachi is displaying a full HD LCD TV whose thinnest part is just 15mm thick. The 37-inch screen is the successor model of a 32-inch TV (thickness: 19mm) the company showcased at last year’s exhibition.

At this point, the new TV with a response time of 6ms and a color reproduction range standing at 152% of the HDTV specifications is just a prototype (as are many CEATEC products). But Hitachi actually plans to commercialize its new TV as early as next year.
