Vivitar in Limbo

In a sign of both a tough economy and a rapidly shrinking photography market, the parent of Olevia LCD tv maker and the Vivitar camera company has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

While the Olevia LCD company remains a viable entity and is in the process of reorganization with one of Syntax-Brillian's manufacturing partners, Vivitar gets the short end of the stick. The camera division will be sold off, but as of this article's press time, no buyers had been named.
