hopefully the light modulation layer is cheaper to produce than the FALD backlight/drivers... would be nice to have 75"+ high-end displays for under $3K

Problem is most of us would have to replace the window treatments and paint the wall behind our TV a neutral gray. As far as dynamic control, what would you use as a reference for bias luminance?...

The extent of strain depends on the content and overall brightness... it may be negligible with darker movies and an OLED and intolerable with Pixar and your TV. As for me (with an LG 55LHX FALD) at...

For those of us that do watch our TVs in a dark room (watching my FALD in a dark room right now), the percentage of people that do is largely irrelevant ;). As far as actual nits, HDR stands for High...

OK... makes sense, since the comparative plots in the article of the DCI-P3 standard in CIELAB coordinates both converge to what I assume to be D65 at some normalized luminance, it begs the...

one more thing on this is that the LG OLEDs do not come anywhere near 660 nits with larger areas... ABL limits full screen brightness to ~1/5th of peak 2% window IIRC. so... it is far less likely to...
