They've incorporated their knowledgeable engineering team that developed the Reference Kuro Plasma HDTV and developed an LED set with sharp.


* Sounds Interesting as they claim the set will set a new reference standard for LED sets.

Pioneers engineers stopped working 2009 when pioneer stopped producing Plasma's, most of them work for panasonic nowadays. None of them have been involved in building the Sharp Elite, how could they, they do not know how to build a LCd (they are Plasma engineers).

Well... the video release states that pioneers engineers worked on the set with sharp.


Please don't be so condesending with this post, it's not necessary on this forum.

I think he was questioning in a roundabout way why we need yet another thread on the same subject. It appears that many people come to the Forum and initiate a thread without checking to see if one or more already exists.


Sort of a "too many cooks spoil the broth" scenario.

All 200 Pioneer Plasma engineers where absorbed by Panasonic, so Sharp hired Panasonic engineers - http://wesleytech.com/pioneer-announ...sma-plans/610/

You are indeed correct> lets say that the blue tint effect is actually the smoke emiting from the fireworks, as that's what a dark sky looks like after fireworks have been set off (and the smoke lingers in the air sometime creating a blue haze effect etc), since the sky is mostly Dark navy in color when ambient light is projected through it (moon sometimes).


*If you look to the left of the fireworks...the picture is pitch black with no blue haze or blue tint.

* I've never noticed blooming on my set, and if it is there...I have never seen it on any of Walt Disneys's opening movie trailers.



* Besides Local dimming can be turned off...I'm sure the set can handle it's own when it comes to black level, unless they don't use special filters on the screen.


I'd also like to know if this Panel is IPS, and how off angle viewing is.

Don't turn of the Local Dimming, because of this option it is called a Local Dimming.

In terms of film-movie playback...maybe not so...plasma from what I understand creates a softer image that can simulate film, especially the Kuro Elites etc...but for sports games and movies, I can't see this set being all that bad...would be nice to see how bad off angle viewing on this set is..since it might not be an IPS panel (LG owns copryrights of IPS tech) but the picture of the TV from a wide angle shows absolutly no dark gradation of the projected image, could be a photo trick as well though.


*Still on the the sides on this set.
