LG has been enjoying successful numbers on their 3D TV sales in both China and North America, but now we're seeing Japanese companies Sony and Panasonic, who are both struggling in the market, opting to incorporate LG's 3D technology into their future line of TVs. A very interesting move.

Head of LG Electronics' LCD TV division, Nho Seok-ho, has said that Sony and Panasonic plan to extend their lineup of 3DTV's this year, and that their upcoming models will sport LG's 3D technology. LG's Film Pattern Retarder (FPR) and Samsung's Active Shutter technology, is the current fight, but it seems that LG has the advantage at the moment as its more affordable thanks to their battery-powered glasses.

 

Sony has been pushing 32- and 42-inch 3D TV's with film-patterned 3D technology in China this year, where Panasonic have been relying on LG for 3D screens for most of its TV models. LG are also planning to add a 60-inch model to its 3D TV lineup to go with their 65- and 72-inch sets in June.
