“The PDP-505MX and PDP-425MX will play an important role with businesses that want to update their offices with a high quality plasma display that is simple to use and integrate into a boardroom, office or lobby,” said Jim Krodel, director of industrial display sales for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.
Features of the PDP-505MX and PDP-425MX include:
- 16:9 aspect ratio (widescreen)
- Encased Cell Structure utilizes a structured phosphor surface area to prevent light leakage between cells, 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.
- Intelligent Auto Set Up enables the plasma to automatically adjust the image being sent to the display.
- With Auto Input Switching, the plasma display can be set to automatically locate the signal and switch to the appropriate input without the user touching a button.
- Auto Power enables the display to automatically cycle between stand-by and operation power mode based on input signal status.
- Black Stripe ensures that the dark colors appear crisp and clear, even in bright environments.
- Three Gamma Modes allow for a more precise display of tone gradations, even for images with low lighting.
- Image Burn-in Management helps the display minimize the effect of image burn-in.
- Point Zoom allows users to expand any portion of a PC image from one to nine times, in three incremental steps, emphasizing key points in a presentation.
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-505MX and PDP-425MX will be shipping in October at a retail price of $4999 and $3499 respectively.
