LG pursuing 3D technology standard

Three-dimensional (3D) technology is LG Electronics’ weapon of choice. Its aggressiveness to promote its in-house film-patterned retarder (FPR) 3D technology has secured another beachhead with a plant in Mexico. It is confidant of making its FPR 3D technology the industry standard.

Inspired by a sharp rise in market share in countries from North and South America and the recent support from Japan’s Sony and Panasonic to use its technology, LG Display has opened its first plant in Mexico, mainly to produce modules for FPR 3D televisions.

“More customers are asking us to supply more FPR panels for use in 3D televisions. We just want to assert that LG is ideally-positioned for on-time delivery, committed to producing high quality products and offering better pricing by setting up a new factory in Mexico,’’ said LG Display spokeswoman Kang Moon-jeong.

The new module plant is the seventh after two plants in South Korea in Gumi and Paju, three in China in Guangzhou, Nanjing and Yentai and one in Wroclaw, Poland.
