    98 views - While LG and Samsung showed off their OLED prototypes, Sony was showing off its new 55-inch Crystal LED prototype at CES 2012. Its display relies on "ultrafine" LEDs mounted to each RGB color, equivalent to the number of pixels, which is all affixed directly to the front of the display. Sony says this results in 3.5 times contrast, 1.4 times the color gamut and 10 times faster response time than LCDs.

    The "Crystal LED Display" is a self-emitting display that uses Sony's unique methods to mount ultrafine LEDs in each of the RGB colors, equivalent to the number of pixels. The RGB LED light source is mounted directly on the front of the display, dramatically improving the light use efficiency. This results in images with strikingly higher contrast (in both light and dark environments), wider color gamut, superb video image response time, and wider viewing angles when compared to existing LCD and plasma displays, with low power consumption.
