Pioneer Announces PDP-424MV Plasma

“The PDP-424MV fills an important place in the public display market, adding to Pioneer’s family of professional plasma displays,” said Jim Krodel, director of industrial display for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “There is occasionally a need in the market to utilize a VGA panel for a specific installation. Now we have the ability to offer that product to our customers. As the industrial marketplace continues to grow, the ability to offer a VGA plasma helps Pioneer to maintain its position as one of the world’s leading plasma manufacturers.”

Features of the PDP-424MV include:

— 16:9 aspect ratio

— 853 x 480 resolution

— Encased Cell Structure utilizes a larger phosphor surface area to prevent light leakage, creating a brighter image.

— High-precision Capsulated Color Filter decreases light reflection for better viewing as well as filtering out unnecessary elements in red, green and blue light for purer color reproduction.

— Black Stripe ensures that the dark colors appear crisp and clear, even in bright environments.

— Four Gamma Modes allow for a more precise display of tone gradations, even for images with low lighting.

— Image Burn-in Management helps the display resist image burn-in.

— Point Zoom allows users to expand any portion of a PC image from one to nine times, in 64 incremental steps, emphasizing key points in a presentation.

— Video Wall function optimizes images depending on the input source when the four-segment multi-screen display is used.

— Color Detail Adjustment enables the plasma to alter the color of a specific item being displayed in an image without changing the characteristics of the image.

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.

The PDP-424MV is shipping this month at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $2499.
