Sichuan Changhong Electronic Co., Ltd. announced Friday that China's largest flat panel TV production line with completely independent intellectual property right had been built. At the same time, its 55-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) TVs and 65-inch Plasma Display Panel (PDP) TVs, the largest China-made flat panel TVs to date, have also come off the line.
The flat panel TV production line completed Friday is China's largest one with the highest technological content. It is able to provide mass production of flat panel TVs of sizes ranging from 7 inches to 120 inches or above. The line adopts many Changhong's patent technologies, including component processing, surface mount, wave soldering, electrostatic discharge protection and exterior protection. Its testing apparatuses and technique management meet internationally advanced standards.
According to experts, Changhong's simultaneous introduction of its production line and largest flat panel TVs with completely independent intellectual property rights indicates that Changhong has taken a significant step forward in terms of establishing intellectual property rights system of the industry. This will further strengthen Changhong's leading role in the industry and rewrite the history that key technologies of China's TV set production depend more on import.
Sources said that the first batch of 1,000 55-inch and 65-inch flat panel TV sets produced by Changhong in accordance with orders will be launched into the global market simultaneously in mid June. These products will be mainly provided for European advertisers and e-commerce operators.
