Hitachi's 18" LCD Monitor Named Best New Presentation Technology At FOSE 2002.
WESTWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 1, 2002
Hitachi's CML181 Monitor Recognized for Advanced Color Management
Hitachi America, Ltd., a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE: HIT) today announced that its 18" LCD monitor (CML181) was named best new presentation technology at the FOSE 2002 show that took place at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center, in March, 2002. The editors of GCN (Government Computer Show) selected the monitor because of its S-IPS (Super IPS) technology that makes color shift almost imperceptible, increases color accuracy, widens viewing angles and provides outstanding sharpness.
FOSE is one of the largest government information technology trade exhibitions. Each year GCN sponsors the "GCN Best New Technology Awards" to recognize the most innovative and unique services and products showcased at the show. "Presentation Devices" was one of 11 awards categories at this year's show. The editors used a double-blind judging system to select 36 finalists and then chose winners in each of the 11 categories from those. They selected products for their usefulness and affordability to Federal buyers.
Hitachi's CML181 monitor is one of the most advanced LCD technologies available on the market. Its S-IPS technology builds on Hitachi's multiple award-winning STFT technology and enables crisp text, true colors, and sharpest, distortion-free images at viewing angles of 170 degrees, in both horizontal and vertical directions.
Hitachi's proprietary S-IPS technology employees a "zig-zag" electrode structure to improve images clarity and reduce color shift regardless of viewing angle. This zig-zag structure arranges the molecules to compensate for color shifts at certain angles at which whites can appear slightly blue or yellow. By angling the orientation and arranging the color shifts to compensate for each other, Hitachi S-IPS technology achieves sharp, high contrast images with the least color shift. The CML181 uses an advanced smoothing algorithm for significantly improved text and solid graphics at non-native resolutions.
With its excellent color reproduction, clarity and quality, the CML 181 monitor is popular in imaging or business applications where users want to conserve desktop space but require top high-quality text and images. The CML181 provides all the advantages of an LCD with the wide viewing angles and consistent colors of a CRT.
