The Brillian PCBs will be assembled at TFS' state-of-the-art Penang, Malaysia facility. The highly automated and advanced factory was originally an Intel operation dedicated to the production of computer motherboards. Since then, the operation has grown its design engineering and manufacturing capabilities and has built a history of accomplishments for world-class customers, including Intel, Motorola, Sony, Sharp, Polycom, and Avocent. Since 1997, the Penang facility has demonstrated its capabilities on a variety of products including telecommunications devices, optical drives, modems, motherboards, VPNs and KVM switches. The Penang operation also specializes in new product introductions where close factory support in Design for Manufacturing and Design for Test was imperative for customers' time to market and quality criteria.
Brillian's televisions are based on proprietary liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCOS(R)) Gen II microdisplay technology and offer contrast ratios as high as 2500:1 yielding extremely crisp images. The Brillian LCOS(R) Gen II technology features high pixel fill factors (greater than 93%) for smooth, eye-catching imagery; fast response times (less than 10 milliseconds) for excellent video reproduction without motion or digital artifacts; and the ability to easily scale to high resolutions to meet increasingly higher-definition broadcast and computing standards. These benefits are delivered in concert with the high reliability demanded in consumer applications.
Jack Saltich, president and CEO of TFS, said, "The agreement with Brillian enables us to leverage our existing infrastructure and nearly two decades of display manufacturing expertise to participate in the high-growth HDTV arena -- a market we see as increasingly important to our business. We view Brillian's LCOS(R) microdisplay technology as the long-term winner in the battle for large-screen, high-resolution television products and we believe our display and manufacturing knowledge will help drive the Brillian technology successfully into the marketplace."
