LG.Philips LCD started mass production of 42-inch LCD panels from 1950 x 2250mm glass substrates at their P7 seventh generation plant in Paju, Korea.

The plant will reach a production capacity of 45,000 glass sheets per month by Q3 2006 and it's expected to increase to the original design capacity of 90,000 by Q1 2007.
The 7G line will initially manufacture 42-inch TV panels and then gradually increase the production ratio of 47-inch TV products. The plant’s 7G substrates are capable of producing eight 42-inch panels or six 47-inch panels.

LG.Philips LCD will be the only panel maker who operates both 6th and 7th generation lines, which the company believes will strengthen its position in the LCD TV market.
