    What's with the shrouds at the side of the screen? In any case it looks yummy. :baby:

    The shrouds are akin to those featured on professional displays - much like the ones you've seen some of the hardcore photo geeks use. Essentially, they serve to filter out ambient light to a degree, in order to maintain the colour in any light

    Holy shiznit batman -

    I can't believe how good that looks.

    The nice thing about technology is that in 5 years or so these will be affordable....

    I don't get it... How would the pictures do it any justice? Since more then likely you are using a standard monitor to view the picture of the great contrast ratio. It reminds me of the Bose commericials and they are like ... "Hear how great that sounds?" when they play the music through your TV's speaker.

    I still want one!!! Little too expensive for my taste though.

    Surely though this wasn't much of a challenge as their LCD TV's are 5000:1 ? or am I totally missing the point?

    There is no panel that exists that has anywhere near a 5000:1 contrast ratio.

    Most panel manufacturers use the 'high dynamic contrast ratio' figure in the advertising specifications, which in all honesty is absolute nonsense and not representative of the actual real-world performance.

    That is why if these Samsung panels are indeed 3000:1 then it's quite a technical achievement. It looks spectacular!

    Any idea if Samsung were asked if these panels may be used on their HDTVs in the near future? I imagine with these prices though anything over 26" could be seriously expensive.

    3000:1? Pah! I'm still waiting for my 120000:1 Brightside display to come on sale down at Dixons.

    200,000:1 is an approximation (using the lowest 'lit' black level), since black is actually black on the BrightSide, meaning you get an infinite contrast ratio.

    I could swear it was in the manual but I can't find it.
    I guess if its 5000:1 dynamic its more like 1600 static?

    From what I understand, the uber-screen pictured at the bottom of the article uses the same technology as the brightside display.

    Well, I think if any manufacturer is going to be the first to bring uber image quality to the table its a good bet it is samsung, of course if anyone is going to make you re-mortgage your house to afford it .. its samsung ;)

    whats the point in having a picture of a high contrast super, amazing, brilliantly bright display if your going to be viewing that picture on an average, low contrast (comparitively) current market display?

    telling us to view those pictures full screen is kind of pointless, we wont be able to tell the difference.
