Is the 1010HD a current model? I think I can get a good deal on one, but I haven't been able to find much information about it. All that comes up is the 1110HD.


I'd like to pull the trigger today or tomorrow, but the lack of info on the 1010 is frustrating. Any quick help would be greatly, greatly appreciated!

Seriously, any help at all would be awesome, even if it's just links to other places that might have relevant information. This is a purchase for my professor and he's breathing down my neck about it.


Thanks,


Jeff

Here you go. You just needed to go to the Pioneer website.

This says the PRO-1010HD is not out until November.

Pioneer Launches Two New Elite Purevision Plasma Displays

Installers Benefit from Flexibility of New Displays and Advanced ISF Calibration

INDIANAPOLIS, CEDIA Booth #400 (September 10, 2004) – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today launches two new high definition Elite PureVision plasma monitors that give professional A/V integrators great flexibility to provide high definition displays in their custom installations. The PRO-810HD (43â€) and PRO-1010HD (50â€) enable a professional installer to utilize Pioneer’s high quality, PureVision plasma displays with the high definition set-top tuner of their choice. Each display features two HDMI inputs for a pure digital connection to external sources. The displays are compatible and easily integrated with control systems utilizing the IR and RS-232 ports.


The new Pioneer Elite PureVision displays offer ISF C3â„¢ calibration mode, a color calibration procedure designed by and licensed from the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). This capability allows advanced color calibration to be integrated into a high definition display with never before achieved simplicity and reliability.


“Pioneer’s Elite products are favored by custom installers and integrators because of their high quality and ease of use. We’ve developed these new plasma monitors to provide even greater flexibility to installers with special installation requirements,†said Russ Johnston, senior vice president of marketing for home entertainment at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.


Pioneer PureVision Technology


The mark of PureVision on Pioneer’s plasma displays indicate that they offer the sharpest, brightest and most accurate picture quality using a variety of proprietary technologies, including:


Pure Drive: Anyone who ever played the “telephone†game knows that the more you pass information back and forth, the more that information will be distorted. Pure Drive keeps the signal as pure as possible by eliminating unnecessary conversions between the analog and digital realm. Any analog signal (analog cable, VCR, etc.) is converted once to digital and then remains in the digital domain. A digital signal (digital cable, DVD, etc.) has no conversion at all. This maintains the purity of the signal going into the plasma display for the purest image quality on screen for the viewer.


Deep Encased Cell Structure: Early in its development of plasma displays, Pioneer recognized that the size and shape of each individual cell in the plasma could significantly impact the brightness of the entire display. The company developed a Deep Encased Cell Structure, making each cell deeper to increase the phosphor area for a brighter picture. At the same time, each cell was cased with horizontal ribs to prevent light leakage from neighboring cells to improve color accuracy and eliminate the kinds of problems that are generally associated with other technologies.


Advanced PureCinema™: Movie lovers will appreciate Pioneer’s Advanced PureCinema, which makes the viewing experience feel more like a movie theater. Pioneer was the first to introduce advanced film playback using 3:3 film-to-video-conversion by increasing the refresh rate to 72Hz in a plasma display. Previously televisions only offered 3:2 film-to-video-conversion at 60Hz resulting in on screen artifacts known as uneven motion.


Advanced Continuous Emission II (ACE II): Close-ups of faces and smooth transitions from dark portions to light parts of a scene are made possible with advanced continuous emission display technology II. Grayscale is improved with ACE II, which distinguishes 1024 grayscale steps for each of the pixel colors to help keep the blacks truly black and provide finer gradations within the dark areas. Compared to 256 grayscale steps found in many other displays, Pioneer offers a tremendous advantage in making dimly lit scenes sharp and clear.


The PRO-1010HD and PRO-810HD will be available in November with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $12,000 and $9,000 respectively.

There are 2 different versions of the ELITE Plasmas.


One is more of a "TV" where the other is a Monitor.


The PRO-1120 is the newest ELITE "TV" coming out...speakers, tuner, many inputs, etc.


The PRO-1010HD is the newest ELITE "Monitor" coming out. No speakers, no tuner, not as many inputs, etc.

Hi,


I saw the 1010 today (in South Jersey) and it is truly a quantum leap forward!


It seems like only yesterday I was saying I would never spend that kind of money for a TV!


I ordered the 1020 (we need the receiver for our application).

The 1010HD specs are almost identical to the 1110HD. Both of these panels are very different from the older 1000HD (e.g., 1024 grayscales vs. 256, HDMI vs. BNC, etc.) Therefore the 1010HD is more of a monitor-version of the 1110HD rather than a "new" 1000HD. For example, the 1010HD has no tuner, so it's not really a "TV". In fact, I suspect the 1010HD has no media receiver (?).


The 1120HD is different again (4096 grayscales, new glass, etc.).

I'm a newbie, so pardon me if I missed it.

This thread discussing the Pio PRO 1010HD seems mostly for clarification and has no posts in 2005.

SO, had anyone actually installed one and what do you think of it?

I am planning to upgrade my DirecTV TIVO to the Phillips HD unit so I don't need a tuner.

schaffnit,


We installed a 1120 in November and we just love it! We also have a 34XBR960 HDTV so we can compare it with something really top notch!


To be totally open, the 34XBR960 has a real good picture with most HD signals. The 1120 IMHO has a better picture, but only when the source material is high quality!


A good friend of mine (who owns a high end video store) said when I bought the Pioneer, "now your problem will be getting high quality source material". And he is dead right!


We can hardly watch anything on the Pioneer that is not either DVD or HD. Standard DirecTV or Comcast cable is almost unwatchable (it will show all the flaws).


With that all being said, the 1120 is the best picture TV that I have ever seen!


Just my thoughts,

Steve609

The 1010 is a fine set, but is not as good as the 1120. The 1010 is essentially using the the same technology as last years 1110 which has been superseded by the 1120.
