Hitachi's LCD Display with LED Backlight Demo
Another display technology Hitachi is showing off at CES is a prototype 17” LCD display panel with an LED backlight. The benefits of using an LED backlight instead of a traditional florescent bulb include being able to display a much wider color gamut for improved color reproduction, reduced thickness of the panel, and a longer lasting display. Hitachi expects LED backlit panels to start shipping in the middle of 2006.
