Panasonic has completed its largest plant for producing plasma TV screens. The plant is the company's third plant in Amagasaki and can produce plasma TV screens up to 150-inches.
The plant can also make nine 50-inch sets out of the same chunk of glass that goes into a single 150-inch screen. The process technology used in the new plant allows the production of screens designed to reduce afterglow and improve 3D performance.
Once up to full production the plant can produce 1 million smaller plasma TVs per month. I wonder how energy efficient the new screens will be, with the move to green laws in California plasma technology looks to be dead as it is now thanks to its power consumption.
