Epson Ships Thirty Millionth Liquid Crystal Panel for 3LCD Projection Systems

Seiko Epson Corporation (“Epson”) today announced that it recently shipped its 30-millionth high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT liquid crystal panel for 3LCD projection systems. The announcement comes only 18 months after the July 2004 announcement of the shipping of the 20 millionth panel.

HTPS panels are the main component in projectors using the popular 3LCD format. Epson has maintained its position as the leading manufacturer of HTPS panels since volume production started of the world’s first such product – a 1.3-inch VGA panel – in 1994. With last year’s launch of a 0.6-inch XGA (D4) panel for data projectors for business, a 0.7-inch 720p (D5) panel for home projectors, and a 0.9-inch 1080p (D5) panel, Epson now boasts a full lineup of 36 products for various uses. Of the 36 products, 25 are targeted at data projectors, and 11 for projectors for home entertainment.

The increasing number of panel shipments can be seen against a background of increasing popularity of projectors for use in business presentations and in education. In addition, projector use is steadily expanding into the home with burgeoning demand for home-use front projectors and large-screen projection TVs to accompanying the rapid growth of DVD players, and digital and high-definition TV broadcasts. Boasting the latest in liquid crystal technology and improved light efficiency from increased aperture ratios, Epson HTPS panels are the core component of environmentally-conscious projectors that provide users with bright, natural images that are gentle on the eyes.

The company intends to continue its tradition of market leadership by developing new technologies that provide ever better performance.
