LCD Panel Makers Vying for 3D Notebook Panel Orders from Asustek

LCD panel makers including Chimei Innolux Corporation (CMI), Samsung Electronics and LG Display (LGD) are eyeing the opportunity to supply 3D panels for Asustek Computer's 17-inch 3D notebook that is expected to be launched in the third quarter of 2010, according to market sources. Asustek's decision will base on the quality of 3D displays, the sources added.

For the 3D PC market, CMI currently is the major supplier of 3D monitor panels, but both LG Display and Samsung have started mass production of their 3D monitor panels. Digitimes Research noted that CMI and Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT) are major suppliers of 3D notebook panels.
