Direct-Lit LED Technology: Direct-Lit LED backlight
technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and
newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. LG's Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature LEDs
positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along the
side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature LEDs
positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology uses
fewer LEDs and do not offer local dimming. Since there are fewer LEDs, the LCD
panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide
adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV much deeper than an
edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better
picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD
televisions, though it requires a much larger cabinet design than newer edge-lit
