Technology is always evolving and manufacturers are bringing out a new generation of TVs which are able to show 3D movies. One type of these 3D capable televisions are the 3D LED TVs.
The use of LED (Light Emitting Diode) as the backlighting in the manufacture of LCD televisions has become very popular over the last few years as the technology has developed. These televisions use the same principles of an LCD television but many of the newer versions of these TVs are referred to as LED due mainly to the different backlighting in use. There are different types of LED TVs with some manufacturers choosing to use LED lights directly behind the screen which are controlled individually and other manufacturers choosing to use LED lights in rows around the edge of the screen. The second method of having the LEDs around the edge of the screen has also allowed manufacturers to produce LED TVs that are some of the thinnest on the market.
LED TVs that use the lights placed around the edge of the panel, all so referred to as edge lit backlighting, have some advantages over the tradition LCD TVs. These TVs produce a picture that has colour contrasts that are sharper than TVs using fluorescent light and the energy consumption of these TVs per hour is much less than many other models of TVs.
The other type of LED TV is the local dimming LED backlighting which uses back lighting as controllable banks of LED lights to produce a picture. The banks of lights can be dimmed and brightened and also have different colours such as red and green with the white to provide depth and a sharp picture that can only currently be bettered by a plasma TV.
The introduction of 3D TV has seen many companies include 3D features in their new LED TVs. The Samsung Luxia UN6C9000 is an example of one of the models currently on sale. This incredibly thin LED TV has 3D capability which can means it can show 3D content as well as convert 2D content to 3D using an inbuilt conversion system.
Sony also has a number of models of 3D LED TVs currently on the market. The Sony XBR-60LX900 is one of these models which features edge lit LED technology and has Sony’s MotionFlow feature which reduces motion lag and image doubling while watching the TV in 3D mode.
