During the past few years, LCD televisions have been appearing larger and cheaper than ever. There is a lot more behind the latest developments in display technology for LCD televisions than just acquiring bigger and more affordable large screen televisions. In particular, for example, we are seeing leaps in the overall picture performance for LCD HDTVs, and sets are now being capable of offering improvements in screen uniformity, better viewing at off-angles, deeper blacks, colors that are more accurate, higher refreshing rates, improvements in LCD response times and even higher contrast ratios.
This is in addition to enhanced features and cleaner video processing. One of the latest hot specs of the day is television content driven by the Internet using things like Netflix and Yahoo widgets, which are found on many new premium HDTV sets. One-inch thin profiles on LED TVs and lower power consumption are also becoming important and relevant characteristics of today’s LCD television sets.
The latest LED LCD televisions are using cutting-edge backlight LED technology, which is another benefit of the improvements and developments in the LCD television arena. The improvements in LED televisions do not necessarily imply that there has been an improvement in the overall picture performance of the television, at least in respect to the traditional CCFL LCD televisions, especially as it pertains to off-angle viewing, screen brightness uniformity and similar characteristics.
Edge-lit LED LCD televisions tend to suffer just a little bit more in comparison to the CCFL-based televisions when it comes to picture quality, though at the same time some of the latest released LED televisions can do a quite remarkable job when it comes to overall quality of picture. For example, the UNC8000 television series released by Samsung uses a much improved version of traditional edge-LED lighting in order to boast a very nice picture quality.
