According to MarketWatch, while the making and selling of cathode ray tube displays began as a joint venture between Matsushita Electric industrial Co. and Toshiba Corp., Matsushita has bought Toshiba's portion of the project.

Matsushita bought Toshiba's 35.5 percent of Matsushita Toshiba Picture Display Co. last week, and the company changed its name to MT Picture Display Co., MarketWatch reports. The value of the transaction was not made public.

With more consumers buying flat panel televisions, demand for CRT TVs has decreased in many parts of the world. Matsushita claims that the company will focus on selling these products in Central and South America and India where they are still in high demand, says MarketWatch.
