Standing at 35mm thick, Hitachi's Wooo UT series of LCDs earns them the accolade of world's thinnest production LCD television manufacturer. Three sizes will be made available, either 42" (¥430 000, $3,760) or 37" (¥330 000, $2886) at 1080p and a smaller 32" (¥230 000, $2011) model with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.


The Woo part of the product name is in fact an accompanying external tuner, which has been separated from the televisions to shave off a few inches. The digital tuner houses 3 x HDMI inputs, SD/MMC slot, iVDR recorder and an Ethernet port. The televisions will all have 2 x 6W speakers, 1 x HDMI/1 x D-sub inputs and an impressive 178degree viewing angle. An optional UWB hub will allow for streaming with a 9m range and will cost an additional ¥90 000 ($786).
