Hitachi 'Ultra Thin' LCDs

Hitachi has announced the creation of a new group of HDTV sets, called the Ultra Thin line. The central draw is of course their thickness, measured at 1.5 inches, making them well-suited to mounting or placement in shallow cabinets. Screens will come in 32-, 37- and 42-inch sizes, the latter two supporting 1080p, as well as an "anti-judder" technology that eliminates problems converting from 24fps to 60fps. All sets have a 178-degree viewing angle, and a 6W+6W digital amplifier that powers the speakers.

While Hitachi has not supplied any information on ports, brightness or contrast ratios, Akihabara News reports that the 37- and 42-inch sets will have 120MHz refresh rates, greatly helping motion response. Hitachi does note that the Ultra Thins will first come to Japan in December, and migrate to the United States sometime in early 2008.
