who a bb employee?? lol
it's the glass not the processing. Fujitsu( out of the plasma business as of last year), B&O and Runco all use panny glass but they have better processing. panels from those high end manf look pretty nice but even with high end processing they are limited by the panny glass so it is not possible for panny, Runco, B&O to match the black levels and contrast of the Pioneer Kuro glass panels.
the non elite/kpm/elite/sig models all use the same processor just with a liittle different software that adds settings/options and features like ISFccc in the Elite/Sig series models.
so hopefully soon pioneer will sell and panny will buy the glass technology/patents and could put out their own Elite tier plasma in 2010........
