  • LG Electronics Develops 60-in. PDP Screen
  • October 27, 1998 (SEOUL) -- LG Electronics Inc. said it has developed a 60-in. plasma display panel (PDP) screen, the largest of its kind in the world.
    It is to be used in wall-hanging televisions.

    The company displayed a TV equipped with the screen, which measures only 10cm thick, at the 1998 Korea Electronics Exhibition at a Seoul exhibition center last week.

    The new PDP screen can be used as a digital TV screen and can handle TV and computer signals.

    "LG plans to start mass production of the product from the year 2000, and will invest 90 billion won (US$66 million) to expand production lines by 2005," a company official said.

    LG said it hopes for a 12 percent share of the world's PDP screen market in 1999.
