With customers increasingly demanding the flexibility to display more information for an improved user experience, Hitachi Display Products Group, with Avnet Electronics Marketing has announced four new widescreen TFT LCD display modules in a 16:9 display format.
Featuring display sizes of 7, 9, 12 and 15.4 inches, the new modules deliver industrial levels of specification, WVGA and WXGA resolutions and join the 7-inch, WVGA high brightness TX18D16VM1CAB display launched earlier this year.
“We see 16:9 wide format modules as the future direction for industrial displays and the launch of these LCD modules places Hitachi at the forefront of this growth market. With four display sizes and wide VGA and XGA resolutions our strategy is to continue to offer customers the best quality, choice and value in the market,” comments Mark Stephenson, Product Manager for Hitachi Display Products Group.
“We see these modules being used in a wide variety of application areas particularly in medical and industrial monitoring where the wide screen enables larger amounts of data to be displayed. The wide viewing angle of the 9-inch IPS module also lends itself to gaming and personal media applications.”
