LED Backlights Gain Ground

At the Business Conference on Monday, Paul Semenza of DisplaySearch pointed out that LED backlights are rapidly gaining share in different LCD display market segments. The use of LEDs in solid state lighting is already nearing 100% adoption in the notebook display market, primarily as a result of the power saving and small form factor of LED backlights. Price premiums for LED backlit TVs are starting to shrink, partly as a result of lower prices for LEDs, as production has grown to meet demand. TV makers also are moving to edge lighting, which makes it possible to have a thinner panel while using fewer LEDs, which also helps lower the cost of the sets. -- Alfred Poor, HDTVprofessor.com
