Bright and Vivid Picture
The Pioneer PDP-508XG offers unrivaled picture quality for your viewing pleasure. Thanks to plasma technology you can view images with amazing clarity, brightness, and contrast. The PDP-508XG can display up to 1,070 million colors and is one of the brightest displays with a contrast ratio of 16000:1. All this leads to a much more vivid television experience.
16:9 Wide Screen
You no longer have to deal with cropped off images while watching some of your favorite movies. With its wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio you can now watch movies in their original format. In fact, the 16:9 aspect ratio is one of the most important aspects of the PDP-428XG since all future HDTV signals will be broadcast in this format.
Wide Viewing Angle
The PDP-508XG offers a completely flat viewing surface with a 160 degree viewing angle. The expansive viewing angle means that you can watch your favorite programs from nearly anywhere in your living room without distortions common to rear-projection TV's or TFT monitors.
Cure for Sore Eyes
Traditionally, video signals are transmitted using an interlacing format where two separate frames are transposed to create one single frame. This results in flicker that can lead to eye fatique and soreness. This flicker problem is eliminated with the progressive scanning process where video images are transmitted in one single complete frame. The PDP-508XG is compatible with all progressive scanning signals from high quality DVD players and HDTV decoders, and other high-end video equipment to produce brilliant flicker-free images.
The PDP-508XG is PC ready. You now have the ability to use your plasma TV with any SXGA, XGA, SVGA, or VGA computer video signals*. With Pioneer's PDP-508XG you not only have a TV, but a computer monitor as well.
