New KURO plasma televisions and monitors will be available in Europe from September.
These include KURO plasma TVs with a separate media receiver:
* 50-inch KRP-500A (now available)
* 60-inch KRP-600A (now available)
and KURO plasma monitors:
* 50-inch KRP-500M (now available)
* 60-inch KRP-600M (now available)
KURO Plasma: Just 64mm thickAll new models are ‘HD ready 1080p’ and feature the exceptional black levels that have become synonymous with the KURO brand. With a thin depth of 64 mm the screens look more sleek and elegant than ever, be it wall-mounted or on a stand. Their glossy black KURO-style design contributes handsomely to any interior decor without distracting.
The new 64 mm TV models with separate media receiver have inherited the inner workings and features of the recently launched one-body Full HD KURO plasma TVs - delivering uncompromised quality, finely-tuned performance and intelligent design.
Our KURO monitor range follows in these footsteps and offers excellence to those who demand nothing but the best plasma screen. Incomparable black levels and extreme contrast make both ranges prime candidates for use in a private home theatre, a living room or a professional setting.
The KRP-600M will be available as of August followed by the KRP-600A in September. The KRP-500A and KRP-500M will be in shops by October.
You can now enjoy an enchanced Optimum AV mode for intelligent automatic image adjustment, ideal in case of varying content and changing viewing conditions. However, if you are very sensitive to picture purity, the new PURE AV selection mode reproduces images as faithfully as possible to the original source material, bypassing all typical picture enhancement processing.
Black like never before
Artists start with a white canvas; televisions start with black. The deeper the black, the finer the detail, the greater the contrast and the more colours the television has to paint with.
All our 2008 KURO models display the deepest blacks and reproduce the most vivid colours, resulting in an unparalleled level of contrast. Richer, more realistic colours create an enhanced experience of entertainment. Images possess a truly captivating clarity and amazing definition, while moving pictures become more vibrant and powerful.
New KURO Plasma TVs and Monitors
The KURO can recognise light, can tell day from night and analyses on screen content in real time. Both plasma monitors and televisions with separate media receiver feature an AV Optimum Mode with optical light sensor for automated adjustment of picture settings according to the lighting conditions in the room and the actual image on the screen, resulting in the best viewing experience.
In addition, the audio is harmonised with the programme being watched. The plasmas come with an extra colour sensor that measures the colour characteristics of ambient light to provide the picture optimum to the viewer eye’s sensation.
The KRP-500A and KRP-600A not only feature an integrated analogue tuner, but also a digital terrestrial (DVB-T) tuner and a digital satellite (DVB-S/DVB-S2) tuner. Both KURO models are compliant with the EICTA “HD TV 1080p” minimum requirements, support MPEG-4 high definition decoding (*) and include two integrated common interface slots.
The KRP-500A and KRP-600A are Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified and as a result can simply be integrated into a home or local area network and play content from one or more connected media servers. This media content is directly available trough the plasma’s Home Media Gallery function, which is nicely integrated in a new, modern-looking Graphical User Interface (GUI).
This intuitive and self-explaining interface incorporates a number of clear-cut options. The Favourites list combines the user’s most-loved channels from any of the integrated TV tuners, and even allows adding external inputs. The Tools menu provides - for the source active at that moment - one-button access to frequently used functions.
With their minimalist, high-gloss black bezel KURO plasmas are very sleek and no-nonsense in appearance. The sophisticated design enhances viewing comfort and allows users to concentrate on the content.
The KRP-500A and the KRP-600A come with an equally attractive and whisper-quiet media receiver, which connects to the screen with just one elegant cable, allowing easy connectivity and flexible cable management. By eliminating multiple cords running out of the back of the plasma, these models feature a clean look and are ideally suited for wall-mounting.
New KURO Plasma TVs and Monitors
Both the separate media receiver and monitor range are complemented by an aluminium preset remote that is well laid out and easy to use. In addition to having an intuitive design, the most important keys of the remote illuminate for increased visibility in darkened rooms. On top of that, the remote of the KRP-500M and KRP-600M monitors incorporates a learning function for programming from other remotes.
All 64 mm models offer a wide array of options when it comes to connectivity. The separate media receiver models boast 4 HDMI inputs that enable a quick and convenient connection to a broad range of source devices. An integrated KURO LINK function enables the user to operate compatible connected devices through the plasmas’ newly styled remote control.
The monitors incorporate a variety of additional features and functions that extend their versatility. IP control allows operation via a PC or other controller through a network, while the Web server function even enables user access and control via a remote PC web browser.
