Yamahas Next Generation 55 Plasma Display Lights-up CEDIA

PDM-5520 Features the Industry’s Best Brightness, Advanced Video
Technologies to Deliver Smooth Crisp Video Performances in Style

INDIANAPOLIS — Yamaha Electronics Corporation, the leader in digital audio and video reproduction, raises the bar with its most recent plasma offering: the 55″ PDM-5520, which offers outstanding visual performance, essential plasma technologies and the industry’s best brightness, which is a key feature among plasma enthusiasts.
The PDM-5520 uses a highly advanced e-ALIS Method (extended ALIS) panel to deliver high image clarity by defining pixels digitally, allowing each picture element to be smaller than normal. This creates a higher pixel count for a much smoother, seamless picture with clearly defined edges and curves. The PDM-5520 maintains a crisp, defined, high-quality video performance during fast-paced action scenes or while showing fast-moving images for improved video performance. Further, the e-ALIS Method employs new plasma gas and luminescent materials that are more effective then its predecessors. The area coated with the luminescent material is larger, which allows the PDM-5520 to attain the highest level of brightness of 1,000 cd/m2 and a 1,366 x 768 resolution, providing a completely clean HDTV picture with no noise at the edges.
Another significant feature is Yamaha’s Natural Black Drive System, which automatically determines the brightness of the screen and applies the gray scale (contrast) best suited to the scene in order to reproduce both bright and dark areas with small, clearly visible details. The contrast ratio is an outstanding 1,000:1, ensuring sharp, natural-looking images, even with scenes that are difficult to display, such as white birches in fog, bright sunsets or the glow of twilight.
Additional features include, Digital Linear Color Control, which maintains the proper balance between the three main colors for optimum color reproduction in every type of scene. The sharpness and tint of each color are independently controlled for a more precise adjustment. Reception Quality Adaptive Noise Reduction and Luminance/Chrominance Transient Improvement technologies also help to ensure optimum picture quality. Day and Night Picture modes, four White Balance modes (Normal, Cool, Warm, Black-White), and a Film mode for watching movies allow users to compare and select the ideal image quality under any conditions.
In addition, a long panel life and extremely low power consumption ensure the PDM-5520 of an extended lifetime of 60,000 hours. This is about twice as long as a typical CRT monitor.
The PDM-5520’s audio features include a built-in 12W x 12W digital amplifier which supplies low distortion sound; SRS TruBass and Matrix surround sound modes; and four audio modes (Movie, Music, Speech, Favorite) for optimum sound quality.
Other features include Side-by-Side Picture, Picture-in-Picture, multi-language on-screen display, timer, and five video and six PC size modes. A remote control is included.
The PDM-5520 MSRP and release date hav not yet been announced.
The PDM-5520 can be seen during the CEDIA 2004 show at Yamaha’s booth (#424), Indianapolis Convention Center, beginning September 10.
