Fujifilm Corp. said Monday it will begin operating its new liquid crystal display film factory in Shizuoka Prefecture in early July to meet growing demand for flat-screen televisions in China and elsewhere.

The factory, located on the premises of subsidiary Fujifilm Opto Materials Co., was initially scheduled to start up in April, but the plan was delayed due to the recession.

The factory will produce film that widens the view angle of an LCD screen.

Fujifilm Corp. has invested ¥6.2 billion to build the factory, which will have an output capacity of 25 million sq. meters of the film a year, according to the company under the wing of Fujifilm Holdings Corp.
