    I have been told by someone who usually is full of bull that the panels of the latest Panasonic plasmas are made by Fujitsu.


    Does anyone on here know if this is rue as I think it's pretty unlikely.





    Cheers!

    While at the What HiFi show, I was told by a Fujitsu representative that both Fujitsu & Panasonic use the same Glass panel made by Fujitsu. But not the entire display.

    No its the other way round, the Fujitsu non ALIS panels use the old Panasonic 5 series screens.
    The Fujitsu ALIS panels are a joint venture by Fujitsu&Hitachi and so are the same ones used in the Hitachi plasmas such as the PMA400

    I'm pretty sure thats right but no doubt someone will be along soon to correct me if I'm wrong... :D

    Rscott is right, Panasonic make the 852x480 glass, including the yet to be released VCA30 glass, which is in fact PW7 based. Release date january, panasonic PW7 release date october. How much better it can be is anyone's guess. Street price a bit more than a PW6, but fujitsu's array of inputs, plus the 2 year warranty will make it interesting. Maybe fujitsu will have a successful HC panel at last. BUT, made by panasonic. There are I think only 7 manufacturers of plasma glass in the world, so the whole industry is pretty incestuous.
