Product Specifications

It's become every TV viewer's dream: a flat widescreen television with a flawless picture to rival the local cinema, yet slim and compact enough to leave plenty of room for its owners, their furniture and their guests. That dream is finally here. Hitachi, world leader in home electronics, is proud to introduce an entirely new category of television: Plasma television for the home. The 42HDT20 42" 16: 9 HDTV monitor with audio video control center has a slim, sculptured HDTV display that can simply be mounted on a wall or placed on a tabletop. Setup is amazingly simple, even for the technically-challenged-just a single cable from the receiver to the monitor followed by easy, logical, step-by-step on-screen instructions. Most importantly, state-of-the-art ALiS technology and exclusive VirtualHD digital processing deliver the biggest, clearest, sharpest, brightest picture you could ever hope for. Or dream about.
