Panasonic to stop manufacturing Plasma TVs from 2014: Reuters


Japanese TV maker Panasonic is reportedly planning to stop manufacturing Plasma TVs from next year. This drastic step has been taken as part of massive cost cutting in the company’s television business, Reuters reports.

Panasonic has already stopped developing new Plasma TVs and next year will stop producing them all together. “We are considering a number of options regarding our TV business. But nothing has been decided yet,” a Panasonic spokesperson told Reuters.

According to the report, the exit from Plasma TVs won’t in anyway affect the production of LCD and LED TVs.
