From Visual Apex's site, some info to shed some light on the pro processor and othe features.
Pioneer Electronics PDP-507CMX
50" High Definition Plasma Display
Requires Expansion Video Card to Process Video Signals
A new standard for 50" image quality, complemented by the most advanced functions in the industry.
Pure Black Panel
Achieves the dual goals of higher brightness and greater contrast.
PDP image quality takes another impressive step forward with Pioneer's new Pure Black Panel. In addition to our exclusive Deep Encased Cell Structure and First Surface Pure Color Filter, Pioneer's breakthrough technology called Crystal Emissive Layer is now applied to our 50-inch PDP panel to achieve luminous efficiency that is much higher than the previous model. The result is unprecedented high brightness and greatly improved dark-area contrast. Blacks are blacker, while light areas maintain their true brightness values. Bright-area contrast is also significantly higher, meaning that the PDP-507CMX provides eye-catching, effective displays in bright places such as shopping malls, event venues and showrooms.
New Pure Drive Pro
Superb picture quality designed for professional applications.
High efficiency and superb picture quality have been achieve by integrating the color management, scaling, GUI mix and other image processing technologies on a single chip that Pioneer developed exclusively for our professional monitors. Scaling performance, a vital factor for our professional monitors, has been improved to ensure that even high resolution signals are reproduced with minimal data loss. In addition, ACE (Advanced Continues Emission) IV technology enables the panel to reproduct high level grat scale accurately for each color. The panel instantly identifies the type of image being shown (fast- vs. slow-motion scenes, dark vs. light scenes) and dynamically optimizes the distribution of color gradation.
Expansion Solutions Card Slot Interface
Expandability to Meet a Wide Variety of Present and Future Needs
The PDP-507CMX is designed to be ready for any type of application with the integration of two ES Card Slot interfaces, one for communication and one for enhanced data. It comes supplied with a removable communcation card that includes RS-232C and combination I/O interfaces. The second slot my optionally be used to enable video capabilities through the input of a wide range of analong or digital signals, with additional control. This means that one PDP-507CMX can be used for multiple tasks, including various applications that other PDPs can't handle. You have extensive flexibility right out of the box, and it is also ready for additional needs that may arise in the future. Pioneer's "Expansion Solutions" are one more reason why the PDP-507CMX should be your first choice for a professional plasma display.
