High-Definition Multi-Purpose Commercial Plasma Display From Pioneer Outperforms the Competition With Best in Class Image Quality

AV communications industry executives gather this week at InfoComm to view the latest technology for commercial use, including a newly introduced 50” high definition plasma display from Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. that offers commercial users the most flexible solutions for digital signage, board room and other business applications. The PDP-505CMX PureVision™ plasma offers Pioneer's First Surface Pure Color Filter™, creating incredibly lifelike images for digital signage that truly stand out from ordinary displays. This new plasma display capitalizes on Pioneer's Expansion Solutions™ technology, giving the user the ability to insert a variety of expansion cards in a slot at the bottom of the plasma to change or enhance the capabilities of the display. Expansion cards are available from Pioneer as well as a variety of third-party manufacturers to create custom display solutions.

First Surface Pure Color Filter

For end-users who want their display to attract attention, Pioneer's display with the First Surface Pure Color Filter reproduces the most brilliant lifelike colors possible while providing better contrast levels in bright environments and the most accurate picture quality currently available. Pioneer's new technology uses one less piece of glass than in previous models, reducing environmental waste in manufacturing and eventual recycling. It improves picture quality by reducing reflection and increasing black levels.

Expansion Solutions Card Slots

Pioneer's vision for its Expansion Solutions program is to provide a more future-proof environment for plasma displays by enabling users to customize their display to meet the rapid evolution of display network control and monitoring technology. Pioneer's plasmas can be adapted through expansion cards to allow access to the World Wide Web, to create a TV tuner, for system control, MPEG playback, signal interface, wireless connectivity or for an imbedded PC. The flexibility and adaptability of Pioneer's newly introduced PDP-505CMX and the stalwart PDP-504CMX and PDP-434CMX enable them to outperform the competition today as well as into the future. As expert third party manufacturers continue to develop new expansion cards, the breadth of new applications using Pioneer's plasma displays will grow exponentially.

Pure Drive

The PDP-505CMX employs Pioneer's PureDrive™ technology to maintain the purest digital signal possible for a clear, smooth and natural image quality. PureDrive includes:

Pioneer's plasma displays offer significant longevity for a commercial user. Sixty thousand hours is an approximate time for the display panel to reach half of its original luminescence. This approximation may vary depending on source and type of content, settings, environment and use. This approximation does not provide or imply any warranty beyond the manufacturer's standard limited warranty.
