Speaking of reshuffling! RIM's not the only company making some changes today, as Hitachi's flat-panel TV business is also looking to try on a new dress. The company nnounced that, with the goal of building a business management structure more closely linked to market, Hitachi Consumer Business Group features flat-screen TV business from FY 2012 Electronics Co., Ltd. Hitachi, Ltd. has been in charge of consumer marketing and sales of home appliances from a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi and then transferred to the group, decided to sales-driven management system.

The reason for the business transfer? Well, they'll be halting domestic production of Wii LCD and plasma TVs in order to improve profitability. This transfer will start from April 1, is expected to be completed by the end of September. Employees involved in Hitachi Consumer Electronics flat-panel TV business, including Hitachi CM, we plan to take advantage of new business and in and out of the Hitachi Group Hitachi Consumer Electronics. Hitachi Consumer Electronics does technology can be leveraged to continue to flat-screen TVs and video equipment. Hitachi CM, with flat-screen TV to make the results developed by Hitachi Consumer Electronics, for final assembly process to ensure that the consignment to the outside, we will build a stable business base for flat-panel TV business.


In addition, information tech projection Hitachi flat-screen TV has ever produced is the production technology and techniques such as optical plastic substrate packaging technology developed in the manufacture of flat-screen televisions and other video equipment will continue to contract manufacturing products outside the Hitachi Group.

What's most interesting about the news is the potential impact elsewhere. Sony and others have also expressed concerns about their TV industries, with profit being the hardest to come by. At CES, many companies displayed sets with almost no bezel, but Hitachi's displaying a desire to change things up entirely. What's the future of LCD? Is OLED finally taking over? Something else?

Would it be possible to get that translated into English?

Do you have to be that rude? why don't you just highlight the error/mistake, and ask the author for an edit and suggest some word correction?

"Problems with OLED

OLED seems to be the perfect technology for all types of displays, but it also has some problems:

Lifetime - While red and green OLED films have longer lifetimes (46,000 to 230,000 hours), blue organics currently have much shorter lifetimes (up to around 14,000 hours[source: OLED-Info.com]).

Manufacturing - Manufacturing processes are expensive right now.

Water - Water can easily damage OLEDs."

SOOOO LCD for poor people like me :) and OLED for people who have $ + have their OLED displays hooked

on the wall to avoid childrens playing with water around it. Could be posible that OLED will take over LCD in a future,the price won't be a problem because i'm sure it will be cheeper and with a longer lifetimes. So If you want better Image quality, more realist image go with OLED.
