Pioneer has taken the wrappers off its new KURO plasma TV range, with a promise that the tellies will display 80% deeper black levels than their rivals (and so provide richer colours and sharper details). The first two KURO TVs are 50 and 60 inches respectively, and will both be HD-ready 1080p models. What's that? You want a suitably artsy quote? How about this: "In the art world, a plain white canvas represents a blank slate waiting for an artist to create," says Pioneer's Heidi Johnson-Cash. "In the world of television, a black screen is a similarly blank canvas ready for content to be displayed."
