Samsung LED-based LCD

The IFA expo in Berlin has seen a number of significant hardware introductions, such as the first computer-free Skype phone from Philips. Today marked the introduction of a raft of new displays from Samsung that take advantage of multiple new advances in technology. Its first model is the LE40M91, a 40-inch LCD television with an LED backlight. The lighting technique provides much more even illumination and improved color accuracy: Samsung claims a 10000:1 contrast ratio and 146% color gamut when using dynamic contrast. Samsung's new set also has double the refresh rate of standard sets. In Europe, the television will update its 720p native resolution at 100Hz and effectively do away with motion blur in fast scenes. The company also announced 40-inch and 46-inch 1080p sets using more conventional technology. No specific details were given about pricing or availability, though all three televisions should be available soon with North American equivalents to follow.
