However, the TV manufacturer quickly denied the rumours. LG, which was one of the founding members of the Plasma Display Coalition, said it was still committed to producing plasma screens and that they were an important part of the flat panel display market.

The company also revealed it will concentrate on producing 50in and bigger screens, as it claims this is where there's most demand.
