Pioneer brings the movie theater experience into the living rooms with a trio of audio video products that deliver 1080p 24Hz picture performance.
The Pioneer Elite PureVision 50" 1080p plasma display, Blu-ray Disc player and A/V receivers work together to handle the 1080p 24Hz rate needed to preserve a feature film?s original sequence.
The majority of feature film titles are mastered on discs at 24
film frames per second (fps or Hz) with a 1080p signal. Since
most televisions are unable to accept the 1080p 24Hz format, many
employ a technique known as Inverse Telecine. Also know as 3:2
pulldown, this process converts 24fps into 30fp by inserting six
additional film frames per second. While an improvement in the
playback performance, the scene sequence is compromised and a
slight jutter may appear during motion action. Pioneer delivers
a new dimension in high definition with its high end audio video
products that resolve and improve feature film playback.
Leading technologies and refined engineering have made
Pioneer plasmas the only HDTV able to showcase 1080p 24Hz.
Specifically, the PRO-FHD1 takes advantage of exclusive Advanced
PureCinema or 3:3 pulldown. With Advanced PureCinema, each film
frame is shown three times every 24th of a second for a smooth picture performance that now equals 72 frames
per picture. Unseen by the human eye, by "flashing" each film
frame three times, this process improves on-screen imagery that
now appears more natural and synchronized with the original film
for unmatched picture precision.
Blu-ray Disc movie titles are also mastered at 1080p 24 Hz. The Pioneer Elite BDP-HD1 Blu-ray Disc player is
engineered to handle and output a pure 1080p 24Hz signal for
natural, high quality film reproduction of Blu-ray Disc titles.
The Pioneer Elite VSX-82TXS and VSX-84TXSi A/V receivers feature
sophisticated engineering and several HDMI inputs for the
specific purpose of transferring large amounts of high definition
such that a 1080p signal provides. When connected to a 1080p
HDTV, the entire signal can be passed in its purest form straight
to the display.
Pioneer markets its products under the Pioneer and Elite brand
names. When purchased from an authorized dealer, consumers
receive a limited warranty for one year with Pioneer products and
