Panasonic's Professional group has launched the VX300 studio reference monitor with their newly developed Bi-Level drive scheme.
From what I have been told this new drive scheme can fire the sub pixels at 1/2 brightness, so each sub-pixel can be flashed up to 10 times per 60Hz cycle at full brightness, 1/2 brightness or off. All other pdds can only power the pixels at full brightness of keep them off.
If you look at the thousands of possible firing order and brightness combinations of off, 1/2 power and full power they can control the tonal range far beyond what was possible before now.
I'm going to see this new plasma display this week.
