LG Philips demonstrated its first LED back-lit LCD TV at an international technology conference in South Korea last week.
The unnamed 47-inch TV boasts 1080p image resolution, can display 1.07 billion colours and has a claimed contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 - a number we'd very much like to see proven. It also has an eight milisecond response rate and 500cd/m2 brightness.
The 47-incher - which was on display as a bare panel - was accompanied by other LED backlit models ranging from seven to 26-inches in size, according to AVing.net
LEDs are said to provide a whiter light for LED backlighting than current fluorescent-lit technology. This promises more natural colour tones and brighter images in future LCD TV panels.
