Low-cost direct type LED backlights for LCD TV panels to emerge in 2012, says DisplaySearch
"The TFT LCD industry is undergoing some extraordinary changes in regards to high resolution and LED backlights for tablet PC panels. Rapid growth in multimedia usage of tablet PCs is driving panel makers to upgrade the resolution of tablet PC panels," noted David Hsieh, vice president, Greater China Market, DisplaySearch. "At the same time, the rapidly growing LCD TV market in emerging countries is encouraging panel makers to develop 'fit spec' products, such as low-cost direct type LED-backlit panels, which have a similar structure to traditional CCFL models, but consume less power," Hsieh added.
