Pioneer Develops Better Black with KURO


PDP5000EXProps to Pioneer and their ability to make flat panels actually produce a decent black. They are introducing their eighth generation of plasma screens that emit shades that are 80% darker than anything available at present. Usually plasma screens display pixels that are self-emitting and produce their own light, while LCD screens must be backlit when turned on, resulting in color flaws in both systems.

The technology will be available in a series of TVs in 42, 50 and 60-inch screen sizes, with a full 1080p resolution that they refer to as “Project KURO,” and have a contrast ratio of 20,000:1. Look for the KURO (which means “black” in Japanese) line to become available very soon. Even Apple has announced that all of their LCDs will be based on this technology by the end of this year.
