    Pioneer has its new PDP-5000EX full HD panel up on its Dutch website. It is mostly the usual sales talk so not much real info. However, it should be on the market in june, and it looks just great. No mention of price yet but I fear it wil be astronomical.

    so what timeframe would be realistic for this to get down to the 3500 quid level of the 720p model?

    how much better will 1080p be than 720p? significantly?

    It'll be a re-badged US Pro-HD1 which is going to cost circa $10k (£6.5k) so yes rather expensive... to most... :rotfl:

    In the latest HCC I read an article that says that "most" of the firstgen of so called 1080p panels will not actually accept 1080p but 1080i and deinterlace it.

    Also it won't be until the 2nd wave of DVD-HD / Blu-Ray machines that will have native support for 1080p

    They will look better with a native 1080p feed but probably worse than a 720p panel at displaying current non HD signals, due to the amount of picture data they are going to need to "make up" to fill the resolution.

    Give it 2-3 years and they will be the norm. (imho)

    This Pioneer supports 1080p24, 1080p48, 1080p50 and 1080p60 input!

    Wrong. At least the Pioneer BluRay player will support 1080p output from the get go. I believe the Samsung BluRay player will, too. The Toshiba HD-DVD players won't, though.

    I believe SONY's flagship Blu-Ray player BDP-S1 will also output 1080p (in fact it looks like most first gen Blu-Ray players will).

    Do we know if this is a Pioneer screen?
    What I mean is it going to be based on the Pioneer 506 and not an NEC fabricated screen?

    I have not really been following plasmas since I got the 50PHD8 but this could be the next toy, I liked the image from the XDE range when it is not moving but not when it starts to move and I think it is down to the processing and media box, this could be excellent combind with one of the new breed of scalers. Pricey combo though at £10,000 for a TV, but I bet you could get the 2 for under £7500.

    Cheers Gordon. This should be very nice then when fed native res/rate with one of the up and coming scalers!

    There is always something to look forward too. ;)

    :D

    Yeah the current ones will still be jaw droppingly good, but if you have a spare £10k under the bed I bet the Radience and this display being fed real HD would look rather special. :)
