Koffas, LCE is a software algorithm, a filter that works on signal, nothing to do with edge leds and their control; you can open photoshop to see something similar.
For this reason it can be used absolutely in the same way on both LEDs and PDPs!
This filter causes a lot of work for the processor, better solution is to use a dedicated chip (less input lag, more accuracy....): for LEDs, Samsung Europe not includes this chip, and the LCE filter is called "Microdimming". Otherwise, with the dedicated chip, LCE filter is called "Microdimming Plus".
