Digitimes Research: Shinodo Plasma ends production of PTA technology
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 10 January 2014]

Shinodo Plasma has ended production of Plasma Tube Array (PTA) display technology as of December 2013 due to capital-related issues. The technology allows screens to have curved features in addition to thin and energy-saving features, but was unable to make an impact in the market due to high pricing. Japan- and US-based vendors nevertheless were originally planning to use the technology to compete in the market.

According to Digitimes Research, OLED TV panel technology is also currently facing issues with pricing, which comes as a result of low production yields. Despite this, the technology is still being pushed by Korea-based panel makers and TV vendors in the market but it still has a long road ahead before dropping in price and becoming more widely used in large-size applications such as TVs.
