    During the ongoing CeBIT show in Hannover, Samsung Electronics is introducing a 30-inch LCD monitor that incorporates an LED as the backlight source. Featuring a 123% color production, 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 2ms response time and viewing angle of 170 degrees, this monitor has the perfect specs. The SyncMaster XL30 will come equipped with "Eyeone Design & Eyeone Photo" and "Natural Color Expert" software. Various input terminals such as USB terminal, DVI-D are available and the 30-inch monitor also features HDCP for viewing high-definition (HD) contents via DVI ports. At the show, Samsung is also launching the 19-inch SyncMaster 940UX LCD monitor we told you about earlier this year, that can be connected using only an USB port.

    Pretty awesome. But, with an LED, is it white light or red light they are using?

    What kinda stupid question is that? Think before you post.


    Edit: But to answer your question, last time I checked (months ago, so maybe they found a new way) they used a red, green and blue LED to create white light. I think Osram calls it "MultiLED".

    Edit2: Ok, I got curious so I checked again and found a whitepaper:
    http://www.cree.com/products/pdf/Backlighting_Revolution_White_Paper.pdf
    Shows the RGP-LED solution and others. (Blue LED + Phosphor layer)


    Oh well, not like you post more than once in a newsthread or actually read the news >_>
