Prospect of Display Devices

Hideaki Kawakami, Electron Tube & Devices Division, Hitachi, Ltd.

ABSTRACT

The electronic display industry is experiencing a rapid growth. By the year 2000, the market will reach approximately five trillion yen. The cathode-ray tube (CRT) market, followed by the flat-panel display (FPD) using liquid crystal display (LCD) and so on, is supporting this growth. In Japan, CRTs are progressing toward high value-added products.

Hitachi are producing high-resolution large display tubes such as 41-cm (17-inch) and 51-cm (21-inch) color display tubes (CDTs), and always meeting the market trend. The steps towards this growth have been brought about by several technical innovations. Newly developed LCDs addressed by thin-film transistors (Super TFT-LCDs) are becoming available, realizing high quality display images having no viewing angle dependency and no color shift.
