Local Dimming

Local dimming, also known as direct LED, is a form of backlighting used in LCD LED TVs. With this kind of illumination, light-emitting diodes are placed on the entire screen surface behind the panel and grouped to individual areas. This makes it possible to control a certain number of separate zones, depending on the fineness of the mesh. Advantages of this setup are a better contrast value and a more precise screen lighting.
