Like everyone else, Pioneer has hit up CEDIA to show off its wares, including these three new plasma displays in its PureVision Elite line. Coming in 42-inch, 50-inch, and 60-inch varieties (dubbed PRO-940HD, PRO-1140HD, and PRO-1540HD, respectively) the sets all include support for Pioneer's Home Media Gallery, with USB and Ethernet ports that'll let you stream content from a DLNA-compliant PC. Supported media includes Microsoft PlaysForSure DRM, and MPEG-1, WMV9, and MPEG-2 codecs. Each unit also comes equipped with NTSC/ATSC tuners, a CableCard slot, a pair of HDMI inputs, two component inputs, PC input and RS-232C support. All three are, unfortunately, sub-1080p, with the 42-incher sporting a 1,024 x 768 resolution, and the two larger models each displaying 1,365 x 768 pixels. The entire lineup is available now with prices coming in at $4,000, $5,500, and $8,000, depending on how big you wanna go.

Update: Near as we can tell, the 42 and 60-inchers share the same panels as the sets dropped this morning in Japan but all gussied up for the US market. The 50's new if that makes you feel lucky.
