Samsung Electronics Co. LTD and Sony Corp. will invest further in their joint LCD venture, S-LCD Corp., which was formed in April 2004. The pair will invest further to meet rising demands for large-sized flat-screen televisions.
The joint venture has just started shipments of LCD sets from an eight-generation production line, and the plan for further investment would see a second eighth-generation production line being produced. The line is capable of producing panels larger than 50-in. in size.
