AUO to Delay 7.5G LCD Production Line Launch
December 05, 2008
Taiwanese LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) panel maker AUO will delay its new 7.5G production line launch, the XFN Asia reported on December 3, citing a Taiwanese local paper, the Commercial Times. Due to the delay, the company's annual LCD panel production for use in 42-inch LCD TVs will be reduced by about five million. Even though its equipment installation is due to be completed by year-end 2008, the 7.5G plant will be idled temporarily. Should the plant begin operations, the plant is said to have a production capacity equal to the combined capacities of three 5G production lines, according to the same source.
