    In all honesty, I dont see why it shouldnt be affordable NOW; a bunch of LEDs working in tandem with the LCD panel should only add a couple hundred dollars to the cost of the display NOW. I want one of these. I want it BAD. :D

    Awesome! I just bought a DLP TV.. and I'm still happy with my purchase. I dont see this being mainstream till 2010 the earliest as it will take a bit for cameras to come around to create content that will be stored on media to be displayed on displays that have been out long enough for production techniques to have been perfected resulting in affordable prices.

    I expect sometime between 2009 and 2012 we will see them hit mainstream.. So i woudlnt necessarily halt all purchasing plans for TV's in the near future.. but do keep in mind that there is this technology.

    I cant wait.. I'll start saving up now :-D

    Dunno, people keep telling me that but I still don't see it any differently. Maybe I'm just refusing to see it because I know all the bad things that will come out of it as well and want to avoid them. But yes, the black screens definately makes the best point. It must be even better in real life, because the backlight bleeding on my 15" Dell LCD from '02 or so, though definately present, has never really bothered me. I only tend to notice THAT if I only have a black screen in a very dark room.

    That, or blame WMVHD content samples.

    And the display was stated to run at 1080p (1920x1080 60Hz)

    I've got mixed feelings on their dynamic backlight adjustment intellectual property. I mean, yeah, they should get credit and money for the novel idea, but them monopolizing the tech just irritates me to no end.

    They're not monopolising it - they are actively pursuing licensing deals with the major manufacturers. That is the way these things always work - the inventor comes up with some new tech and patents it, then licenses it to be used by manufacturers. What do you expect? They spend 6 years perfecting this then just give it away to Toshiba, Sharp etc. to make their own displays without paying them a cent?!??! :hehe:

    Well, they have invested 6 years of work into it... At least they are aggressively licensing it rather than going exclusive with one manufacturer - they really want this to be everywhere.

    very cool technology.

    been reading up about SED lately and that looked realy cool, but this totaly blows SED away because of the comparitive simplicity of it.

    very well written artical btw, and like the inclusion of vids, you guys been doing that a fair amount recently, I for one think its a good idea.

    Great article, excellent job of simplifying the science to an understandable level and keeping it from interfering with the subject of the article. BTW if you ever need someone to review one... :p

    Great article and it's good to see there are active developments to improve LCD tech. I don't know if I'm alone but I can't stand the Grey Black. Now in 90% of the situations I use my 2405 works fine but I simply couldn't play Doom3 as the poor blacks were clearly visible and ruined the experience. I hope FEAR fare's better.

    Great article. I can see where this kind of display would really make a difference in applications that have a lot of contrast, or must be displayed in a dark room. However once you have any ambient light in the room it becomes not very important. If there is light on in the room there isn't a very big difference between off and black on my LCD becasuse of the light bouncing off of it.

    I've just done some comparisons of my own to see just how 'dark' dark is... I've got two Dell 1705FPTs side by side, so I've taken pictures with the light on and the light off. My monitors are set up correctly and are pretty dark: brightness 20, contrast 40. The one on the left is turned off, while the one on the right has a completely blank screen.

    I'm pretty impressed tbh.

    I love the review. OMG were the chart is jokes, give contrast ratio and so on, then price. $49,000. I almost craped my pants. $49,000 for a true realistc display. LOL

    I can imagin reading this in the future and saying OMG the first HDR displays were $50Gs, LOL

    If these displays were hypothetically available right now for your PC would they remove the need for HDR in games. From what I can see they actually create the effect using physical hardware and actual light instead of software and virtual light sources, like Half Life 2.

    Oh, missed that bit. Good for them in that case. As long as they don't make it exclusive to one mfr., it's good with me.

    And I'd bet that $49k will drop substantially.

    Now, do correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I read something like it'll use 48-bit color precision to better achieve the HDR lighting, not just "brights are brighter, darks are darker". Wouldn't games actually need to support that? Or am I way off-base and just too wet from my own drool to really get what you said in the article (or at risk of killing my keyboard if I try and reread it thanks to said drool)?

    I don't know if this has been asked or not, but still:

    Were there any problems with glaring at all? With those videos I could barely read the text/see the sky images (though that might have to do more with the camcorder than anything), was the text easily readable as it was on the HDTV?

    Still though, very very sexy :)
