Samsung and LG.Philips LCD producing monitor panels at next-generation plants - sources

Industry sources recently indicated that Samsung Electronics and LG.Philips LCD (LPL) both are using their next-generation plants to produce LCD monitor panels, with Samsung producing 17" monitor panels at its seventh-generation (7G) plant and LPL using its 7.5G plant to make 19" monitor panels. The move is surprising, as it is not efficient to produce 17" and 19" LCD monitor panels in such advanced facilities; next-generation plants are more suited for TV panel production, the sources pointed out.
