[The Chosun Ilbo, January 16 2008] Korean Digital TV Technology on Par with Japan's

Recent findings say Korea has leveled the playing field with Japan when it comes to making TV screens and mobile devices.

An analysis by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy found Korean LCD and plasma-screen technology to be equal to that of Japan.

This compares favorably with 2006 when Korea's screen technology was evaluated as only 90 percent as good as Japan's.

Korean-made DVD players, handheld video players and mobile phones were also found to be as top-notch as Japan's.

However, research results show Japan still outshines Korean in electronic parts, medical devices and robots.
