IFA 2007 – Hitachi unveil World’s First BluRay Camcorders

Hitachi are throwing their hat firmly into the BluRay ring with the release of two HD camcorders - the BD70E and BD7HE -  that can record direct to the discs, allowing for instant playback in any compatible player.  Using 5.3-megapixel CMOS sensors, they record full 1920 x 1080 high-definition to 8cm discs; or, in the case of the BD7HE, optionally to the internal 30GB hard-drive before burning to disc.  Both camcorders - which Hitachi are calling the world's first to use the BluRay format - have HDMI outputs should you not have a BluRay player to hand.

Hitachi Claims First to Mass Produce 800×480 LCD Panel for Mobile Phone

Hitachi Claims First to Mass Produce 800×480 LCD Panel for Mobile Phone

According to Japanese site Tech-On, Hitachi has recently started mass producing what it claims to be the industry’s first 800 x 480 2.9-inch LCD mobile phone display panel. This is worth celebrating for folks who do a lot of mobile web browsing, as the new display is designed to eliminate the need for side scrolling.

The panel uses Hitachi’s proprietary LCD technology called IPS instead of general TFT. The difference between them is that with the IPS “a horizontal electric field causes liquid crystal molecules to rotate in a plane parallel to the TFT substrate.” Whatever that means, the end result is a wider viewing angle, better color reproduction, and faster gray-to-gray response time.
