Since liquid crystal displays (LCDs) don’t produce any light, they need to be lit from behind. The old standard has been to use cold compact florescent lights (CCFL) because it produces a uniform light across the whole screen for an affordable price.But light emitting diodes (LEDs) have improved to the point where they are taking over for the CCFLs.
