Philips drops backlight

Having only used it for a year, Philips has already dropped a proprietary backlighting technology found in its LCD sets, says Reuters. The company's Aptura backlight used stroboscopic bursts, which created the illusion of sharper images with less motion blur. Philips will instead make the move to LED backlights, which continue to be expensive, but will require less development costs, especially given the company's existing Lumileds division. LEDs are generally considered to be longer-lasting than bulb-based technologies, and also consume less power for the same amount of brightness.
