Hitachi’s 8m:1 contrast ratio hybrid LCD on display at CEATEC

6 10 2007

So Hitachi is showing off their super high contrast ratio (8,000,000:1) “hybrid” LCD at CEATEC today, and we’ll be completely honest, we were totally underwhelmed. As we learned before, the panel uses two LCDs — one panel, and one LCD projector firing into the panel — to achieve those higher-end contrast ratio numbers, but to these eyes everything just looked grainy and mushy, and the viewing angle and 700cd/m2 brightness were nothing to write home about. For our money, when it comes to uncommercialized / prototype display systems, SED, OLED, and even a really good LCD or plasma produce far better pictures. Perhaps we’ll have to revisit this one in a year or two when Hitachi irons out the kinks.
