I heard today about rumours Pioneer will stop soon production on plasma screens and will introduce soon LCD screens. Does anybody know more about this?

If the gossip is correct Pioneer plan to stop making Plasma screens under 50"" opting for LCD screens on screens upto 50"", so they can supply the masses with a cheaper mass market product and keep its high-end Plasma range for the higher-end market.

this reminds me very much of the HD DVD.
And I reckon it' ll last not very long until Panasonic and Samsung will also give up on the plasma if this news is true.

Neither Pioneer nor Panasonic are giving up on plasma anytime soon - according to recent presentations we've seen, both are well into building new plasma-production facilities.

For example. Panasonic has got a new plasma TV plant coming on line in 2009, which wil produce its next generation of bigger, slimmer plasma sets.

What Pioneer aren't about to start doing is building LCDs - which is why they've got the tie-up with Sharp.

And from what we can gather, Pioneer certainly intends to stick with plasma for screens of 50in and above.

Who's to say Pioneer could not sell both types of tv; giving people the option of new, mid-priced (but high-quality) LCDs, aswell as the usual premium quality Kuro plasmas? Also, having seen what Pioneer have managed technologically with plasma, isn't anyone else interested in what Pioneer could achieve if it put it's hands to work on building quality LCD displays. They could build two different 42" models; one plasma and one LCD, both 1080p. Both 50" and 60" panels would be exclusively plasma, and Pioneer could extend their market by buiding 32" and 37" premium LCDs (premium but still more inexpensive that Pioneer's existing plasma range).
