Hitachi goes Ultra Slim with Wooo

Coming in at a depth of just 35mm, the unusually named 'Wooo' series of LCD's from Hitachi are due to make their debut on these shores this Spring.

Initially available as LCD monitors, the Wooo range will expand in October 2008 with the addition of a separate box holding a Freeview tuner and extra connectivity.

Although the removal of the of some of the Wooo's innards goes some way to explain its ultra slim profile, Hitachi has also employed some innovative light-diffusing wizardry at the back of their new panels to shave those extra few millimeters from its width.

Available in 32in, 37in and 42in sizes, all of the Wooo range of LCD TV's apart from the 32in model will come equipped with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolutions. Prices for these slim screens from Hitachi are likely to start at around £1200 for the 32in model with prices for the larger panels yet to be confirmed.
