Pioneer is going to buy Panasonic (Matsushita) plasma panels and still develop and integrate their Kuro technology. Pioneer will still differentiate themselves using their own glass filter technology, video processing, encased cells, etc. So the answer is the Panasonic will be the same panel but still be quite different than the Pioneer Kuro.
With the recent announcements by Pioneer - and the claim that Pioneer will be giving the 'Kuro' technology to Panasonic as part of a deal-
should we expect a 42inch Panasonic plasma 1080p with kuro technology?
If so, does anyone have a guess when this might be available?
