                      News Release

                      January 11, 1999

                      Hitachi Releases 18-inch Wide-Viewing-Angle SuperTFT LCD

                       Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE:HIT) today announced that it will release in Japan an 18-inch LCD 
                      on January 12 as the latest addition to the company's SelecTop series of LCDs.  The new 
                      display employs Hitachi's SuperTFT LCD panel technology that delivers a wide viewing 
                      angle as well as high resolution.
                      In personal computers, the main emphasis this year is on PCs that have sharp, 
                      clear displays, are fast, and do not take up much space or consume much energy.  This is 
                      spurring the shift to LCDs which, compared to CRT displays, take up less space and 
                      consume less electricity, in addition to which their low level of flicker makes it possible 
                      to view them for extended periods without fatigue. In particular, there is a growing need 
                      for LCDs having a large viewing area on a par with that of a 20-inch CRT display.
                      In response to this need, Hitachi is adding to its lineup this LCD which has a large 
                      viewing area corresponding in size to a 20-inch CRT display and, with its SuperTFT 
                      technology, is able to display small characters and moving pictures with razor-sharp clarity.
                      Hitachi, Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, is one of the world's leading 
                      global electronics companies, with fiscal 1997 (ended March 31, 1998) consolidated 
                      sales of 8,417 billion yen($63.8 billion*).  The company manufactures and markets a 
                      wide range of products, including computers, semiconductors, consumer products and 
                      power and industrial equipment. For more information on Hitachi, Ltd., please visit 
                      Hitachi's Web site at http://www.hitachi.co.jp.
                      * At an exchange rate of 132 yen to the dollar.
                      
                      Features of the new display
                      1.	SuperTFT technology provides clarity and wide viewing angle
                      In accordance with Hitachi's SuperTFT technology, electrodes are used to apply 
                      an electrical field that imparts a horizontal orientation to the liquid crystals, instead of the 
                      vertical orientation used in conventional TFT panels.  SuperTFT technology provides 
                      displays that offer low flicker  combined with fast response and low reflection, and are 
                      able to display even small characters and moving images with very sharp clarity..  
                      Moreover, a SuperTFT display has a wide vertical and horizontal viewing angle of 160 
                      degrees (+/- 80 degrees).
                      
                      2.     SXGA compatibility
                             The display uses an 18-inch TFT liquid-crystal panel (equivalent to a 20-inch CRT 
                      display) that is SXGA-compatible (1,280 by 1,024 dots) and is able to display 16.77 
                      million colors.  Because the display is low-flicker, it can be viewed for extended periods 
                      without discomfort.
                      
                      3.	Lightweight, space-saving design with low power consumption
                              At about 11 kg, the new display is only around one-third the weight of a 21-inch 
                      CRT display, has about half the depth (233 mm) and uses about half the power (about 85 
                      watts) (comparisons made with respect to Hitachi products).
                      
                      4.	Analogue RGB interface offers full compatibility
                              The display unit is equipped with two D-Sub 15-pin analogue RGB interface 
                      connectors, for connectability with Hitachi's FLORA 300/400/700 series of PCs as well 
                      as with PCs and workstations made by other companies.  Two PCs can be connected to 
                      one display unit.*
                      
                      *The display cannot simultaneously display images from two PCs.
