LCDs aiming largely at Plasma space

Kevin C. Tofel

It wasn't long ago that once you considered a flat-panel over 32-inches or so, plasmas were the way to go. The trend is changing and according to one marketing manager at Sharp, LCDs will become the clear choice in the 37-inch and up flat-panel market. Yes, he is a "a marketing manager", but Sharp is bringing their 8G plant on-line around mid-year and expects larger sized LCDs as a result. Back in the labs, Sharp has prototyped LCD panels with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, but panel size is more likely to contribute to sales than mega-contrast.
