LED Backlighting

Guidi says that unlike traditional backlighting and lamp light sources, LED-based lighting offers users energy efficiency and other benefits like improved performance.

“The lighting is created by groups of three LEDs - red, blue and green instead of a single electroluminescent panel with a limited color spectrum,” Guidi points out. “The result [of using LED lighting over traditional light sources] can be superior color accuracy.

“The second advantage is that the LEDs typically draw less power. The third [advantage] is that they can be rapidly turned up or down in intensity to dynamically extend the contrast ratio of the panel. And the last advantage is that we should see lower cost per hour operating and maintenance costs for projection [based products].”
