LG.Philips LCD's increased focus on small to mid-size LCD panels will help it meet the needs of the growing number of information technology (IT) and consumer electronics (CE) companies that are developing and marketing convergence products, which incorporate media and data functions. The global market for convergence products is expected to show exponential growth in the coming years, as technologies such as Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) and Wireless Broadband (WiBro) enable a whole new class of mobile multimedia and information display products.


The small to mid-size product group refers to panels below 10-inches, with below 4-inches being considered "small" panels. The main markets for small to mid-size LCD panels include portable multimedia devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, portable DVD players, automotive displays, industrial and medical monitors and game machines.
