Samsung 70-inch LCD TV Has Local LED Backlighting

The Samsung Intergalactic Empire keeps presenting hot models left and right. And some LCD televisions too, like this 1080p 70-inch model they introduced today in Korea, the first commercial Full HD TV ever with selective local LED backlighting. The new system, which will be sold around the world during the second half of the year, allows for some amazing features.

To start with, the local backlighting means that the TV can automagically turn off the LEDs in dark areas of the image. This not only brings deep blacks and a 500,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio but also, according to Samsung, it reduces the power consumption "by as much as 50%." It also implements LED scanning, in which "LEDs are rapidly shut off in sequence" eliminating flicker and ghosting.

Samsung has quite a bit of these technologies lined up. While this one will completely turn off the LEDs in some areas, future versions of the technology will adjust the backlighting dynamically over finer surfaces.

You do know that Sony LCD's are made by Samsung right? Samsung TV's rule so i have no doubt the Sony ones do too but Samsung will always have a better version on the floor than Sony as they keep the best and latest for their own models.

if I'm not mistaken the Samsung and Sony lcd's are produced on the same line and actually the same television technically speaking. The only difference in many of their sets are the physical appearance. Made by Samsung or not I know that in fact a lot of the television are the same, just a different name and appearance...

70" Pavv? Wonder how much more this is going to be than the 70" Bravia XBR3 that costs a staggering $34k. As for the XBR3. I to have one and it's absolutely astonishing. The piano black finish and floating glass make it look elegant while the picture quality makes it beautiful and one of the best on the market amongst flat panels...

Hey snoop_dizzle its been a while. Hey I end up buying a 42 inch 720p widescreen Samsung Plasma. Thanks for the input you gave me a while back. I've been playing Call of Duty 3 and Gears of War on it since I got it. Its cool I can see the difference.

No flicker or ghosting, oh man, Now I need one of these baby's for playing MGS4 on my PS3... This is the TV I have been waiting for...

Rumor is that it is going to cost $45,000 to own.. At that price I better go see if eBay will let me sell my kidney...LoL
