Dolby and SIM2 working on HDR LCD screen
The way it will work is to employ three layers:
Layer 1: The main LCD
This would provide the color, resolution and contrast.
Layer 2: Backlight simulation
This layer will provide a copy of the image in the main LCD and will increase brightness in in bright areas and reduce brightness in darker areas.
Layer 3: LED dynamic backlight
The dynamic backlight layer will only light up parts of the screen instead of the entire screen like other displays, reducing picture washout.
No info on availability yet or even a physical prototype so it may just be a theory right now but it is a cool idea that I’d sure be curious to see.
