Mitsubishi Dropping LCD to Focus on DLP

Posted Wed Mar 23, 2011 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

LCD sets are a thing of the past for Mitsubishi. Bigger TVs are the future.

It's almost strange to think of an LCD television made by Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi name is practically synonymous with massive DLPs that take up an entire wall. They're not at home with tiny LCDS.

The company agrees and is completely cutting LCD production from the plans. Instead, they'll be focusing on their bread and butter. "To that end," reads the company's press release, "we will manufacture and sell micro-display projection televisions (MDPTVs) and Laservue televisions in sizes 73 inches and above."

The company will be closing its Ontario and Braselton offices and relocate services to Irvine, CA. They'll also be cutting back production in their Mexicali, Mexico plant, but won't be closing it completely.
