Hitachi Gets 6 New Wooo LCD HDTV's And 3 Wooo Plasmas
Hitachi unveiled 9 new Wooo HDTV's yesterday across the pond in Japan. The Hitachi Wooo UT Series will be available in three sizes, 32-, 37-, and 42-inches, all with full 1080p resolution save for the smallest display which features 720p. Super-slim 35 mm thin bodies are a result of several of the televisions' components and dual TV tuner being removed from the set itself and placed in an external box connected to the set by Ultra Wide Band. All three LCD's have 250GB of internal HDD space, an iV an iV port for iVDR HDD cartridges, DLNA compatibility, x.v. Color, and Deep Color. The two smaller screens feature IPS Alpha panels while the 42-inch display boasts a 120Hz IPS panel.
Three more LCD's will become members of the Wooo XV Series, available in identical sizes as the UT Series, and utilizing many of the same features. Once again, all displays are 1080p aside from the 32-inch display which features 720p resolution and all have an iV port. None of these sets have any internal drive space and aren't quite as thin, integrating all the TV's components within the sets.
The final three new releases are plasma displays, branded under the Wooo 02 Series moniker, and available in either 42- or 50-inch sizes. The 42-inch big screen features 1024x1080 pixel resolution, while the two 50-inch sets feature 1920x1080 pixels or 1280x1080 pixels. Like the Wooo UT series, the two larger 50-inch displays integrate a 250GB hard disk drive, while all three new Hitachi plasmas features an iV port.
Not content to call it a day with 9 new HDTV's, Hitachi also announced a new Wooonet application for the UT series which allows transfer of video content from house to house, from PC to TV, and also allows access to a new VOD portal.
