Sony looks to AUO for Ultra HD TV panel purchases


Max Wang and Julian Ho, Taipei; Alex Wolfgram, DIGITIMES [Monday 24 February 2014]

Taiwan-based AU Optronics (AUO) will reportedly receive most of Sony's LCD TV panel orders in 2014, according to industry sources.


Sony is expected to put in steady orders to AUO for LCD panels in 2014 as well as increased orders of Ultra HD TV panels, the sources said.


Most of the Ultra HD TV panel orders will be for high-end units featuring WCG technology and large-sizes such as 65-inch. The sources added that Sony is also likely to release new larger sizes in 2014.


Currently, AUO's lineup of WCG Ultra HD TV panels includes units sized 42-, 50-, 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inch.


The sources said Sony's purchases come as it expects its Ultra HD TV shipments to increase during the year, and overall expects its LCD TV shipments to be between 14-16 million units.


Sony will also reportedly purchase LCD panels from Innolux in addition to LG Display and Samsung Display, the sources noted.

This could be a good thing personally I prefer VA type panels over the LGD IPS panels .
