S-LCD began shipping mass produced Generation-7 amorphous TFT LCD (thin-film transistor liquid crystal display) modules to its parent companies, Samsung and Sony.

S-LCD was established on April 26th 2004 by an equal joint investment of Samsung and Sony, dedicated to the manufacturing of amorphous TFT LCD panels for LCD TVs targeting mass production to begin in the first half of 2005.

S-LCD has started producing the world’s largest generation-7th glass substrate and has shipped LCD panels with integrated peripheral devices such as back-light and driving circuitry to both parent companies, according to individual specification requests.

“I am proud to announce today that the cooperation between Samsung and Sony has realized the mass production of the most advanced 7th generation amorphous TFT LCD in the world. Competing in the fast-growing LCD TV market, the most advanced LCD panels produced by S-LCD will set the new industry benchmark in terms of performance, quality and cost,” said Won-Kie Chang, President and CEO of S-LCD. “By delivering the highly competitive panels, S-LCD can further strengthen both company’s leading position in the display industry,” he added.
