More details on Pioneer’s plasma business

Pioneer logoPreviously it has been reported that Pioneer will not be manufacturing their own plasma panels but will be sourcing them from Panasonic. Well, I have just received information from Pioneer that this doesn’t affect their Elite line of plasmas.

Pioneer will be manufacturing the glass and assembling the Elite plasmas for model years 2008 and 2009. There will be four models in total: both 50″ and 60″ televisions and monitors. These will remain at the current price points.

The Pioneer brand PDP panels will be sourced by Panasonic and assembled by Pioneer. This is so they can compete in the aggressive plasma market. There will be two models at 50″ and 60″.

Later this year there will be Elite brand LCDs.
