Hitachi plans to end their Japanese production of TV products and instead outsource production to mostly Taiwanese production companies. However, Hitachi says that they have no plans to get out of the TV business but they have to react on the difficult market conditions.

Hitachi has been making TVs since the mid-fifties. In 2008 they joined forces with Panasonic and Toshiba to produce LCD-TV panels based on an IPS panel technology. Later in 2008 Hitachi withdrew from the plasma TV market.

What the outsourcing strategy means to Hitachi’s LCD-TV line-up is not clear at this point.
