Pioneer’s new KURO HDTVs announced

Pioneer introduced today its new line of Kuro HDTVs for 2008. The high-definition television manufacturer boasts the KURO brand’s striving for “absolute black” which allows for images that have finer detail, more contrast and deeper colors. The company says this year’s KURO televisions have black levels five times greater than its 2007 models.

The new KURO HDTVs are only 3.7 inches thick, 20-percent thinner than last years models. If you have ever seen these televisions in person you can probably attest the pure elegance of the thin design, not only the practicality.

Pioneer has integrated six unique sound settings which associate with video settings for personal taste or set for a certain type of programming. The 2008 KURO televisions add other features such as networking to media galleries via PCs or USB drives, Windows PlaysForSure and DLNA compatibility.

The two KURO models listed for release are the PDP-5020FD (a 50-inch model at 1080p) for $4000, and the PDP-6020FD (60-inch model at 1080p) for $5500. Both models are scheduled for June 2008 release and come with a 1-year warranty.
