Samsung-Sony JV to Produce 11th Generation LCD Panels

S-LCD, a joint venture of Samsung Electronics and Sony, will begin the manufacturing of the 11th generation LCD panels.

The new generation LCD panel will be the largest LCD panel in the world once developed. It measures 3,000 mm and 3,320 mm in length and breadth, respectively. The LCD panel is ideal for constructing large television sets having screens with over 40 inches.

The contract for the production of the 11th generation LCD panels would provide Samsung a stable and secure LCD panel source, aiding Samsung to progress in the LCD panel market. If both Samsung and Sony approve the contract by early 2011, the production could commence in the latter half of 2012.

S-LCD is a joint venture, started in April 2004 in South Korea, between Sony of Japan and Samsung Electronics of South Korea. S-LCD has a monthly manufacturing capacity of 50,000 8th generation panels, and 100,000 7th generation amorphous silicon (a-Si) panels. These panels are incorporated into Sony and Samsung Electronics LCD TVs and memory cards.
