LED TV Technology
People shopping around for HDTVs will run into a number of options, one of them being the LED-Lit HDTVs and it’s best to get an idea of what they are.

LCD stands for Light Emitting Diode. Nothing more. It pertains to the technology that allows for the lighting of an LCD display whereby an LED lights up the display. Traditional LCD screens use CCFL or cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps. Now how does this make for a better product? It’s because of the resolution and that’s counted in pixels. An HDTV or High Definition Television, utilizes a maximum of 2 million pixels per frame. That’s why the picture is so sharp and clear, depth of color and more. Now add the advantages of LED and you’re talking a twist on HDTV technology worth taking a look at, no pun intended.

At first only a few companies explored LED lighting for television screens and especially for HDTV. The combining of both technologies was a leap from the traditional CCFL and is proving to be quite the smart move in the right direction. It’s because of the sharpness due to the resolution ratios of the black and white range that adds for crisper and more depth of color pictures. None of the smokey looking, hazy look of the CCFL screens. The LED-Lit HDTV screens have thousands of LEDs lighting up the screen and this affords for a precision amount of adjusting. Not all movies and TV shows are alike and that calls for the ability to fine tune things to catch the quality of the craftsmanship of the producers of such entertainment pieces. In the old days people loved adjusting the dials on those big television sets to make scary movies scarier and bright musicals more lively. With LED-Lit HDTV you can do that down to the molecule it seems like. You become a bit of an artisan yourself, knowing the ambient light of your room, the angle of the television screen and more. If you’re going to shell out the money for these screens you might as well be able to tweak them to your satisfaction.

The impact of the results of these screens is alarming to many people. Reason being is they’ve not seen such rich color and depth like this before. One glance at the store and people get hooked. They look at those Blu-ray or HDTV broadcasts and the next thing you know they’ve got to have one. The costs might raise an eyebrow but there’s something else to this new technology that is a real reason to buy. In the old days sets and screens burned up lots of energy. After a few years, maybe five at the most they burned themselves out. Not so with the LED-Lit HDTV screens. They save around 40% more energy. That right there should extend the life of the screen and its overall quality for years and years. They also come with the latest compatibility options as well so that you can watch subscription HDTV, satellite, cable, and those video games. As a matter of fact, the video game industry is a major reason why these screens are so popular. Video games nowadays are produced with more money than most major motion pictures. Those are the action/adventure games and they mean business. They take pride in their work and want to utilize the best that LED-Lit HDTV has to offer. Most of the time the proving ground is with video games and the results are immediate selling points. You really get the value of your hard earned dollar with LED-Lit HDTV in more ways than one and going back to energy savings, in the long run, the screen pays for itself.

Now let’s go back to the real reason you want that LED-Lit HDTV. It’s called picture quality. Brighter and with a picture that stands out as if you’ve already got 3D glasses on. Matter of fact, 3D combined with LED is taking the world by storm. Sure the technology at present costs a bit more and it will take a bit more time to see if the lifespan of the sets lives up to expectations but so far things are looking good. If you test the sets, do so at the stores by asking the salespeople to demonstrate not with just the subscription based HDTV broadcasts, but with the classic movies and TV shows you’ve loved. You’ll be amazed at the clarity and detail. You may be surprised that some old movies with their special effects and makeup don’t hold up to such advanced visual technology but you can tweak the screens to hide those embarrassing moments like wires holding the invading spaceship up or the three layers of false eyelashes on that screen queen you’ve admired all these years.

Now there’s something you have to remember, just because you’ve bought an LED-Lit HDTV doesn’t mean everything you watch is in HDTV. The broadcast like news or sports has to be in HDTV or you need to subscribe to a service that broadcasts in HDTV. Blue-ray and other DVD venues are in HD but you’ll have to ask your salesperson the specifics.

Once you get the screen you’ll find another benefit is easy installation. At this time manufacturers have learned the hard way that people like to install systems to their liking and don’t want to fuss while doing so. You do have that option of having a professional do it but that might cost more. Ask before you buy.

More technical background should be covered here as well. LEDs come in several forms. Ask clearly to each manufacturer what the deal is. What you’re getting and what to expect in the short and long term. RGB LEDs are LEDs that are placed behind the panel. White Edge LEDs are those that are positioned around the edges of the panel and the full spread array of LEDS are behind the panel but don’t have the ability to contrast with darkening and brightening on an individual basis. Think of it like skin. If there is something warm or cold near your hand, the skin will react to it but not the upper arm. It’s localized and can result in a more precise and rich visual experience which is what makes RGB so popular. With White Edge LED lighting the rim or outside of the screen is the source of the lighting that is spread across the screen by a specialized panel. Finally the gangbuster is the Full Array LEDs. This is like having a science fiction like skin of LEDs spread out across the screen that reacts to the picture in ways of localized color and contrast, reacting like your skin does mentioned earlier. This is something to see for sure so make sure when shopping you ask thoroughly about what type of LED lighting you’ll be using.

All in all, LED-Lit HDTV appears to be the wave of the near future. How it will fare in the long run is still to be tested but there’s no question about the performance and picture.
