Keywords:Sony? rear projection TV? flat TV?

Sony Corp. has given up on rear-projection TVs.

The company announced last week that it will stop production of such TV sets, and would instead focus its endeavours on LCD and OLED technology as it forges ahead in the flat TV market. Rear-projection TVs were once seen as a promising rival of LCD and plasma displays for the flat TV kingship.

Sony plans to cease making the TV sets at three plans in Japan and overseas next month. The company is the latest Japanese manufacturer to drop the TV technology after Seiko Epson Corp. and Hitachi Ltd also announced plans last year.
