August 28th, 2007 · No Comments

S-LCD Corp, the panel-making joint venture between Sony and Samsung has begun production of 46- and 52-inch LCD panels. Produced at S-LCD’s 8th generation plant in Korea, the screen sizes are being produced with the sole intention of destroying ‘s traditional stronghold, the super-large screen TV market.
The Korean factory, located in Asan, can produce 50,000 super-large panels a month. S-LCD’s 8th Generation Line is capable of processing the world’s largest motherglass substrates, measuring 2,200mm by 2,500mm.
Ryoji Chubachi, President and Electronics CEO of Sony, Katsumi Ihara, Executive Deputy President, Jong-Yong Yun, Vice Chairman and CEO of Samsung Electronics, Sang-wan Lee, President of Samsung LCD Business, Won-kie Chang, CEO of S-LCD, and Masatoshi Hitomi CFO of S-LCD were among the 300 who attended the rolling-out ceremony at the plant.
“We have remained a step ahead of the competition in terms of production scale and timing,” said Won-kie Chang, CEO of S-LCD. “Our sights are now on LCD TVs in the 50-inch class and we aim to lead that segment. Our success with 7G line will continue with the new 8G line operation, and we will grow into the world’s largest LCD maker.”
