Yes the title is a mouthful! LG Display (LPL) showcased the world’s slimmest 47″ 1080p LCD TV incorporating a LED backlight and local dimming technology. How slim is it? 8.9mm. That is VERY slim! But let’s make sure we know exactly why this LCD panel is so special.

Most ultra-thin LCD TV panels that incorporate a LED backlight does not make use of local dimming technology. The reason is that the LED backlight is actually edge-lit. Edge-lit LED backlights, as far as I know, cannot make use of local dimming. So this 47″ LCD panel with a LED backlight and local dimming is quite special and extremely thin. So how did LPL do it? LPL incorporated a new backlight system called a “modular LED backlight”.

The LCD panel is of the IPS (In-Plane Switching) variety so you get excellent color fidelity. Other features include a brightness of 500 cd/m2, a color gamut of 80% NTSC, and a 6ms (MPRT: Motion Picture Response Time) response time. Availability of this ultra-thin 47″ LCD TV panel is unknown but I sure do hope it gets incorporated into new LCD TVs sooner than later.
