Pioneer Ships 50” 1080p Plasma Display
Pioneer brought its biggest plasma TV gun into the stables today as it announced it had begun shipping the world’s first 50” 1080p plasma display. The new Pioneer Elite PureVision PRO-FHD1 is now hanging out at specialty retailers for a whopping $10,000.
The PRO-FHD1 doubles the pixel density of previous plasma displays with a 1920 X 1080 native resolution, said Pioneer. The company said they used their years of plasma technology development experience to manufacture the world’s smallest pixels measuring .576 millimeters, which reportedly will let you “see tiny beads of sweat on an athlete’s face as well as the stitches on the football as it flies through the air”. This 50” plasma also has an on-board video scaler used to up-convert 480i, 720p, 720i and 1080i signals to 1080p, among many other features.
