VIZIO SMART TV GUIDE TO LED
A lot of companies now use the term “LED” when describing their TVs. But what does this actually mean?
First of all when you see LED you know the television is an LCD screen. The LED refers to the way in which the LCD screen is back-lit. That is all.
There are two main types of LED back-lighting.
1. Edge back-lighting
The LEDs (light emitting diodes) are placed only around the edges of the screen and the light is projected towards the middle of the screen. This allows for very thin panels but the lighting may not be as uniform as with the second type of LED, local dimming.
2. Local dimming
With local dimming, LEDs are placed all over the entire length and width of the screen and they operate independently. This allows for very localized lighting to happen. For example in black parts of a picture the “local” LEDs will turn off to produce very deep blacks. Some models can produce a little bit of light bleeding into darker areas.
