Hitachi unveils 42-inch professional plasma monitors

August 9, 2004

Hitachi America has launched two new professional plasma monitors. The 42-inch 16:9 HDTV plasma monitors are designed to serve a broad range of commercial uses — from custom audio-video applications to single-point signage and networked multi-site retail display systems.

The model CMP4211 and CMP4212 are the newest additions to Hitachi’s line of 16:9 EDTV and HDTV plasma monitors, which already include 55-inch, 50-inch and 42-inch models.

The new models employ Hitachi’s proprietary Alternate Lighting of Surfaces (AliS) technology, which enables a display resolution of 1024x1024. Combined with Hitachi’s PC graphics processor, it is said to provide significantly smoother, sharper images than conventional plasma technologies.

By utilizing one of two Life Extension modes, the ALiS plasma display also improves long-term brightness performance over conventional plasma technologies, a key aspect when using plasma technology for digital signage applications.
