Syntax-Brillian won the “LCoS RPTV of the Year Award” at the Annual China Digital TV Award 2006 event held last week in Beijing, China. The award was for the Brillian 65-inch 1080p rear-projection LCoS HDTV. Syntax-Brillian has also entered into a partnership with a company owned by the Chinese government to manufacture the LCoS imagers for use by Chinese television manufacturers. The joint venture hopes to be have volume production underway by this July.
China has a growing middle-class that has a voracious appetite for consumer goods, so display industry companies from Syntax-Brillian to Corning Glass are building plants and forming partnerships within that country. The resulting products are not just for export, but an increasing portion will be earmarked for China’s domestic market.
