Tidetime Group chairman Chen Ping has indicated that the company is currently Focus Media's exclusive supplier of LCD monitors and systems, providing approximately 200,000 units annually.
In May 2005 Tidetime purchased a 70% stake in Sun TV from Stellar Megaunion Corporation.
Tidetime started as an OEM manufacturer of magnetic disks for Sony, and in 2004 started to manufacture electronic picture frames.
Tidetime plans to launch a 22mm thick high-definition LCD monitor in January. Chen estimates that full-year 2007 sales will be worth several billions of yuan.
