Please note: This Pioneer Plasma display
does not contain a tv tuner, therefore a digital cable or
satellite box will be required to receive television signals. If you wish to
view non-digital cable tv, we recommend the
TVP500F card from
Aurora Multimedia. This video card has a built-in tv tuner.

Pure Color Filter
For end-users who want
their display to attract attention, Pioneer’s display with the First Surface
Pure Color Filter reproduces the most brilliant lifelike colors possible
while providing better contrast levels in bright environments and the most
accurate picture quality currently available. Pioneer’s new technology uses
one less piece of glass than in previous models, reducing environmental
waste in manufacturing and eventual recycling. It improves picture quality
by reducing reflection and increasing black levels.
Deep Encased Cell Structure
The cells of a plasma display panel,
where light is generated, are the most important factor determining image
quality. Pioneer has continually refined our cell technology, which is
called Deep Encased Cell Structure. The latest version used in the
PDP-505CMX incorporates an additional green fluorescent body material,
contributing to ultra-high contrast and 1000 cd/m2 brightness.
Pioneer’s vision for
its Expansion Solutions program is to provide a more future-proof
environment for plasma displays by enabling users to customize their display
to meet the rapid evolution of display network control and monitoring
technology. Pioneer’s plasmas can be adapted through expansion cards to
allow access to the World Wide Web, to create a TV tuner, for system
control, MPEG playback, signal interface, wireless connectivity or for an
imbedded PC. The flexibility and adaptability of Pioneer’s newly introduced
PDP-505CMX and the stalwart PDP-504CMX and PDP-434CMX enable them to
outperform the competition today as well as into the future. As expert
third party manufacturers continue to develop new expansion cards, the
breadth of new applications using Pioneer’s plasma displays will grow
The PDP-505CMX employs
Pioneer’s PureDrive technology to maintain the purest digital signal
possible for a clear, smooth and natural image quality. PureDrive includes:
Emission III(ACE III)
reduces the visible steps between the levels of color being viewed making
color transitions smoother than before.

Pioneer’s plasma tv
displays offer significant longevity for a commercial user. Sixty thousand

for the display panel to reach half of its original luminescence. This
approximation may vary depending on source and type of content, settings,
environment and use. This approximation does not provide or imply any
warranty beyond the manufacturer's standard limited warranty.
