10/7/2002 - Fujitsu, the leader in plasma display technology, was honored last night with an Emmy Award for its efforts and accomplishments in plasma display development. At the gala event hosted by the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City Fujitsu was among the companies recognized for making significant contributions to television production, broadcasting and viewing.

Fujitsu's Tedd Rozylowicz, Senior Vice President, stated: "We are extremely proud to receive this award in recognition of our development in the plasma industry. Fujitsu looks forward to continue to lead the way in technological innovation in the plasma industry by building on our history of achievement."

Fujitsu's Innovative History
The Emmy Award acknowledges Fujitsu's longstanding commitment to the plasma industry and its status as the most influential company in the development of plasma monitors. Research and development beginning in the 1960's produced breakthroughs that led to the first color plasma display in 1993 followed by Fujitsu's first 42-inch plasma display in 1996. The monitor offered an alternative and superior solution from traditional CRT displays, by providing a thin, lightweight display with features such as a viewing angle of 160 degrees and a widescreen aspect ratio.

In addition to the introduction of its first 42-inch plasma display monitor, Fujitsu also worked towards the development of the first plasma digital video processor. The processor enabled Fujitsu to manufacture and introduce the first-ever HD (high-definition) plasma monitor in 1999. Fujitsu's subsequent developments in digital video processing led to the creation of the single-chip AVM (Advanced Video Movement) digital processor. The proprietary AVM processor is currently in all the latest-generation Fujitsu Plasmavision SlimScreen® monitors and provides the most realistic reproduction of natural movement while also reducing artifacts and flicker inherent in PDP technology.

Fujitsu Plasmavision SlimScreen monitors can be found in many different environments. From home theaters, to production studios and sound-mixing stages, Fujitsu plasma displays provide superb video and graphic reproduction while elegantly blending into any room or studio décor.

Convergent Visual Medium Versatility in Every Environment
Fujitsu's Plasmavision displays are the ultimate Convergent Visual Medium for a wide variety of commercial, business, multimedia and home theater applications. Delivering powerful big-screen impact yet measuring only a few inches in depth, Plasmavision monitors are compatible with virtually any digital and analog video source, including high-definition television and the video output from a computer.

Fujitsu's widescreen (16:9) plasma displays are designed to outperform all other plasma displays in their respective categories, providing dramatically higher brightness and contrast along with ease of operation. The current line of Fujitsu plasma displays offer a host of advanced performance and convenience features, such as the company's proprietary AVM digital video processor that is optimized for the characteristics of the plasma display screen.

In addition to superb picture quality, Plasmavision SlimScreen displays offer unparalleled installation flexibility. They can be either hung on a wall or ceiling, or mounted on a stand, and their design enables all cables to be hidden from view, and easily routed to an A/V system or computer.
