Rumor True: Matsushita And Pioneer Come To Plasma Panel Agreement, Viera's And Kuro's Will Use Identical Panels

pioneer_logo.jpgThe Matsushita-Pioneer plasma partnership rumor we told you about earlier this morning is apparently true. The two companies have announced a basic agreement, though a formal cementing of their relationship will indeed not happen until next month. The two companies did release a few tidbits though.

They'll be combining their R&D efforts to reduce the cost of manufacturing larger size plasma panels, so it won't be as simple as Pioneer simply buying panels from Matsushita. In fact, the panels produced will utilize Pioneer's Kuro technology and Panasonic's Neo PDP energy efficiency drive and be sold as both Kuro and Viera panels.

Don't expect the first Matsushita-made Pioneer Kuro's right away though. The first releases will hit shelves come fall of 2009.
