Pioneer announced a new line of KURO Plasma TVs featuring black levels five times deeper than the previous award-winning KURO.
The philosophy behind Pioneer’s Project KURO and the driving force is to achieve absolute, pure black. True, deep black creates a picture unlike any other that possesses finer detail, greater contrast, and more importantly, the ability to produce deeper colors not achievable before. This year, Pioneer pushes ever closer to their goal of absolute black by further reducing the idle luminance and improving black levels five times over the previous 2007 KURO models. This has enabled Pioneer to accurately reproduce deeper colors within the high-definition color spectrum and outdistance other display manufacturers.
The Pioneer KURO televisions are now only 3.7 inches thick, reduced by nearly 20%, have a new remote control and redesigned high definition graphic user interface for ease-of-use and seamless integration with other A/V equipment Networked Home Media Gallery for playback of digital assets such as HD movie, music and photos from a PC or via USB. Pioneer KURO televisions are DLNA compatible and Windows PlaysForSure compatible.
The first two new KURO Plasma TVs are the 50 inch PDP-5020FD (MSRP $4,000) and 60 inch PDP-6020FD (MSRP $5,500). Both full HD Plasma HDTVs ship in June.
