NEC Merges Display, Projection Businesses

NEC Corporation plans to merge the company’s projector and desktop and large-screen LCD and plasma businesses as of April 1. Yoshiaki Tsuda has been named as the President of the new NEC Display Solutions, Ltd. It appears the new business will use the NEC Display Solutions of America, Inc. moniker.

It makes sense, since front projection and large flat-panel displays are viewed as equally viable solutions in many installs these days, so why have two different divisions working on the same business?
