Toshiba brings together TV, PC & tablet design

Toshiba is moving its LCD TV design and development operations to its PC and tablet development hub in Tokyo.

The integration will take place within the year and will allow Toshiba to draw on TV, PC and tablet technologies to accelerate development of fusion products for the global market: “The number of models of digital products and product platforms will be reviewed to bring greater efficiency to design and development and to optimise use of R&D resources.”

The move, one of several announced by Toshiba, will, said the company, enhance the operating efficiency and performance of its digital products businesses, including the LCD TV business.
