Measuring 0.2mm, diodes are the ‘D’ in LED. These are used as the backlight to project the TV picture. Since they are smaller in size than the traditional LED TV diodes, more can be packed into the TV screen. This means that the diodes in Mini LED TVs give you more control to create a better quality image. It also means there is less backlight bleed.
This is the glass panel on the TV screen that protects the technology encased inside. The tens of thousands of Mini LEDs sit behind this panel, and it works as a transistor for the display to produce the TV colours and picture.
LED TVs utilise an LCD screen to project their picture. A backlight within the screen controls where light is displayed and when colours are lit up. LED screens are split up into zones that can be controlled independently. The more zones a screen contains, the greater the picture control the TV has.
High-dynamic range content has a higher contrast and a larger colour and brightness range than Standard (SDR) content. It is also more visually impactful than 4K content. Most Mini LED TVs fully support this level of output.
Premium TVs are able to locally control the colour in areas on a screen, known as zones. These zones can be brightened or dimmed independently, which results in deeper shadows, brighter highlights and more vivid colour.
Mini LED TV screens contain more zones than previous technologies, allowing just a handful of pixels to be controlled rather than larger chunks.
