Hitachi introduces new TFT display for medical imaging
Hitachi Europe Ltd, Display Products Group has introduced a new 21.3-inch, 1.9-megapixel UXGA TFT medical display.

The TX54D13VC0CAA display implements Hitachi's in-plane-switching technology, IPS-Pro, which provides a stable color image from any viewing angle, excellent color saturation and a very high contrast ratio, according to the company.

When viewed from an acute angle, a conventional TFT display will exhibit a loss of brightness and display image colors become inverted. In certain applications this performance limitation is not critical, such as a laptop PC where the user is situated perpendicular to the TFT display. Hitachi said its IPS-Pro TFT technology overcomes the limitations of conventional TFT display technology.

The new display has 1600 x 1200 pixels, a contrast ratio of 900:1, brightness of 300cd/m² and a viewing angle up to 176 degrees, Hitachi said.
