Plasma TVs have been overtaken by LCD TVs for many reasons. One of the main reasons is that the average plasma screen consumes lots more power than the average LCD TV. Despite that, plasma TVs are still popular.
Panasonic has announced that its latest plasma screen manufacturing plant has been completed. The plant is its third in Amagasaki and is the company's largest. The new plant can produce 150-inch panels for massive screen Panasonic sets.
Each of the glass panels that produce the 150-inch sets can also be used to create nine 50-inch screens. The factory will also build screens that use technology to reduce afterglow and improve 3D performance of the screens. The plant will eventually produce up to 1 million sets per month.
