Hitachi Display Products Group (DPG) is unveiling a series of new TFT display modules due for introduction to the European market. The first showing of the new display modules up was at Electronica in November 2008.

The following displays are scheduled to be released to the European market during 2009: a 6.5-inch VGA TFT, a 7.0-inch WVGA TFT and an 8.0-inch WVGA TFT, with both the WVGA displays featuring Hitachi's IPS Pro technology. Also announced were two high-resolution displays targeting medical and professional monitoring applications: the new 19-inch WSXGA+ and a 21.2-inch QXGA TFT display module, which also feature IPS-Pro technology.
