                      Hitachi Announces Three Plasma Displays with Highest Resolution in the Industry

                      - The Industry-first release of 25-inch SXGA, a 41-inch XGA and a Hi-Vision Compatible 42-inch displays-

                      Digital Media Group (President & Chief Executive Officer: Yoshinori Fujimori) of Hitachi, 
                      Ltd.(TSE: 6501) today announced the release of three plasma display models, with the first 
                      going on sale July 1.  The three models are the industry's first 25-inch SXGA display with a 
                      screen aspect ratio of 5:4, a 41-inch XGA display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, and a 42-inch Hi-
                      Vision-ready display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, all with the highest resolutions available for each 
                      display size.  The new displays thus encompass a range of display resolutions and screen sizes 
                      that make them suitable for a broad range of market needs.

                      Plasma displays are set to become one of the mainstream display devices of the future, and as 
                      such are expected to enjoy good market growth.  To speed up development of a new 
                      generation of plasma display panels and differentiate its products from those of other companies, 
                      Hitachi joined with Fujitsu Limited to establish, on April 28, a joint venture, Fujitsu Hitachi 
                      Plasma Display Limited (FHP) for developing, manufacturing and selling plasma display panels. 
                      The three plasma displays, to be sold by Hitachi, will use panels manufactured by FHP, thereby 
                      becoming the first products from the new joint venture.  Hitachi plans to expand the market for 
                      plasma displays through an aggressive program of product development that will include the 
                      development of plasma displays for TVs.
                      
                      Plasma displays have a number of features which include a slim, space-saving form factor, self-
                      illumination, digital operation and wide viewing angle.  The thinness of the displays allows them 
                      to be used in a wide range of installation configurations, and their wide viewing angle means 
                      that many people can view the screen at the same time.  Thus, plasma displays create a new 
                      visual image space that is unlike that of a conventional CRT or projection TV.  The ability to 
                      display small text and graphics, as well as moving pictures, at high resolutions makes plasma 
                      panels suitable for large-screen displays able to handle the fusion of data and moving pictures 
                      that is developing through a process of media digitization.
                      
                      Another feature is that since the displays do not use magnets, they can be moved and oriented 
                      in different directions without having to adjust the colors and focus each time.
                      
                      The main target of the 25-inch SXGA model is the market for large-screen PC displays.  The 
                      screen aspect ratio of 5:4 matches the SXGA resolution format of 1280 by 1024 dots, making 
                      the display ideal for CAD and other such high-resolution applications.  With a thickness of 
                      about 12 cm and a weight of around 20 kg, the display fits easily on a normal desktop.  The 41-
                      inch XGA display has a 4:3 aspect ratio, providing a display area that is larger than a wide 
                      picture format of the same size.  This makes the display ideal for conference-room 
                      presentations to groups of people and for displaying information in public spaces.  The 42-inch 
                      Hi-Vision compatible display has the 16:9 aspect ratio used by the high-definition format, and 
                      is aimed mainly at the market for moving-picture viewing applications.  
                      
                      Hitachi will also be offering for full sound and video configurations to go with the display, 
                      including digital broadcast receivers and DVD as well as VCRs
