July 2, 2012 — Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE:6724) reached the milestone of 80 million high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) thin film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) panels for 3LCD projectors, enough for more than 26.5 million projector units.
Epson develops technologies to boost power and performance of these projectors. 3LCD projectors historically are used for enterprise computing — business presentations. Today, 3LCD projectors are used in various markets — home theaters, education, commercial segment, and more. The market for projectors is expected to grow nearly 10% every year.
Epson plans to enhance and expand its lineup of HTPS display panels for specific market needs, said Nobuyuki Shimotome, deputy chief operating officer of Epson’s Visual Products Operations Division.
