Seiko Epson Corporation has announced a total shipment of 80 million high-temperature polysilicon (“HTPS”) TFT liquid crystal panels for 3LCD projectors; sufficient for more than 26.5 million projector units.
Currently, 3LCD projectors are widely used in a variety of market spaces. In the home theater segment, projectors offer a compelling movie-viewing experience with 3D and high contrast capable of producing jet-black shadows, while in the education segment, projectors facilitate effective learning at school. Projectors also offer effective support for events in the commercial segment by delivering lectures, art and entertainment in large spaces.
The market for projectors is expected to grow nearly 10% every year.
