led tv

An LED-backlit LCD is a flat panel display which uses LED backlighting instead of the cold cathode fluorescent (CCFL) backlighting used by most other LCDs. LED-backlit LCD TVs use the same TFT LCD (Thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display) technologies as CCFL-backlit LCD TVs. Picture quality is primarily based on TFT LCD technology, independent of backlight type. While not an LED display, a television using this display is called an “LED TV” by some manufacturers and suppliers. In the UK, the Advertising Standards Authority has made it clear in correspondence that it does not object to the use of the term “LED TV”, but requires it to be explained in advertising.
Three types of LED may be used:
Edge-lit LEDs - in which the LEDs are formed around the rim of the screen, using a special diffusion panel to spread the light evenly behind the screen (the most common use)
LED backlighting (Full array)- behind the screen, whose brightness is not controlled individually
Dynamic “local dimming” backlight - LEDs controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.
The iPhone 5 has an LED-backlit TFT IPS LCD, while the Sony Xperia S is an example of an LED-backlit TFT TN LCD (also referred as TFT LCD).
