Pioneer Adds LCD's To New European Kuro Lineup
Looks like Pioneer will be extending their Kuro lineup in Europe this year, even moving into the projector market with an HD-ready 1080p front projector. The second-generation plasma lineup will include the 50-inch PDP-LX5090, 60-inch PDP-LX6090, the 50-inch PDP-LX5090H, and the 60-inch PDP-LX6090H. All four models feature 1080p, 100Hz panels and reduced idling luminance and black levels five times those of the world-renowned 2007 lineup. The initial two models will be available in June, while the latter models will be available at different times depending on the region. No pricing info is available yet.
As we told you earlier this year, Pioneer will be moving into the LCD market, outsourcing much of their plasma production and thus will be releasing three new LCD models-the 32-inch KRL-32V, 37-inch KRL-37V, and 46-inch KRL-46V. All three models are HD-ready 1080p 100Hz displays, featuring anti-reflective filters, triple HDMI 1.3 support and an aluminum-looking finish. The two smaller displays will be available come June in Europe while the larger 46-inch model has no release date yet, nor have pricing details for any of the models been released.
The Kuro front projector will be available this month, configured for screen sizes starting at 60 inches, and featuring the same amazing contrast levels the Kuro name is known for, bring theater-like film quality to your home theater projection screen. The projector also utilizes LCOS 1080p technology, wide lens shift capacity and dual HDMI 1.3 support.
