    hi guys

    need some advice

    im looking for a new 50" plasma
    looking at the Pioneer PDP-5000EX
    (thinking it will do 24hz properly.. i cant stand any sort of judder, my eyes seem very sensitive to it)

    1) How would it handle the 60hz 1080p signal from my PS3 and HDDVD player. (As they dont support 24hz output yet).
    Would it recognise the movie frame rate and convert it back to 24hz and display it that way at 24hz or would it double up to 48hz?

    or would i need a external scaler like a VP50 to achieve a true 24hz picture?

    2) ive see Panasonic are bringing out a 'next gen' line up.
    PANASONIC TH-50PZ700
    Does it do true 1080p 24hz?


    thanks. :hiya:

    I've had a Pioneer PDP-5000EX for nearly a year, and yes it does 1080p24 properly and displays it at 72Hz so there is no flicker; very nice. :)

    However, it will display 1080p60 from your PS3 as 1080p60.

    To get PDP-5000EX to display 1080p24 you will either need to:
    • Feed it 1080p24 from Blu-ray or HD DVD player natively.
    • Use a DVDO iScan VP50 which can extract 1080p24 signal from 1080p60 source and then feed that to display.
    • Output 1080i60 from Blu-ray / HD DVD and the PDP-5000EX display will reconstruct a 1080p24 signal with its Pure Cinema technology.

    HTH

    24 Hz? Even film is shown at 48 Hz with each frame being flashed twice in cinemas to avoid flicker.

    I've been looking at this, and haven't found any info that it does support 1080/24p...which is worrying:(

    Errr... no, it would flicker like mad and give you a mental headache.

    As pointed out above even cinemas project each frame twice at 48Hz, the display playing each frame three times at 72Hz means rock solid picture.

    So I don't understand why you would prefer that?

    i dont like the motion blur and judder caused by repeating frames.
    i cant stand 100hz TVs.

    i want to output 48hz via a VP50
    and have the screen display it that way?

    thanks.

    people, i finally saw 5000ex fed from correctly setup lumagen hdp. it took some time to get a chance to see one.
    i can only recommend this combo, it takes all resolutions, simply jaw dropping. :clap:

    If you have not bought yet wait and have a look at the Pio LX508.

    Sould be around in September this will definately support it.

    Bit i'm reasonably sure the 5000 does.
