Taiwan Kolin to produce BD players, says paper
Taiwan Kolin, a Taiwan-based maker of LCD TVs and electrical home appliances, will start production of Blu-ray Disc (BD) players between the third and fourth quarter of 2008, with pick-up heads and chipsets to be supplied by Sharp, according to the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) newspaper.
The BD player will be sold in the Taiwan market at below NT$30,000 (US$977). In addition, Taiwan Kolin will produce the BD player on an ODM basis for Syntax-Brillian, which will market it in the US and other markets under its Olevia brand, the EDN cited Taiwan Kolin president Frank Lee as saying.
