Panasonic: We're Staying in Plasma
Panasonic last week responded to numerous media reports which stated that it was preparing to exit the plasma market. The company issued a clarification.
"Reports that Panasonic will no longer develop and manufacture Plasma HDTVs are not correct," Henry Hauser, Vice President of Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America's Merchandising Group, said in a statement.
"This week in New York City, Panasonic demonstrated the latest development of our gapless Plasma panel technology in our 2013 Smart VIERA ZT Series Plasma HDTV. The technology incorporated into our ZT Series Studio Master Panel will be the basis for continued plasma display panel development and production."
