2. Mr. Norio Ohga
- During I was working in the UK (beginning of 1980s), he visited us and had an opportunity to directly asking him on FLAT Screen TV.
My question was; what Sony is developing FLAT screen TV?
His answer was;
We do have Flat Trinitron TV. So, we do not need any other flat screen TV.
I said, I meant LCD or Plasma screen TV
His answer was:
I do not think quality of these will not be acceptable for TV applications and therefore
Sony thinks these are not necessary for TV Business.
So, what happened since then are well known by many other people that Sony does not have
Own capabilities of producing LCD panel and spent a large amount of money to obtain and secure
LCD panel. TV business has been continued to make a huge loss for over many years!
