Deep Blacks and Contrast that Delivers

With Planar's Advanced Performance LED (AP/LED™) backlight technology, Clarity® Matrix® HX60 High Bright LCD Video Walls deliver deep blacks and outstanding contrast utilizing algorithms that turn off the backlights when darker or black content is displayed. In addition to superb contrast ratios, Planar's AP/LED backlight delivers reduced power consumption while still achieving maximum brightness.

Apled -small -notagAP/LED technology controls the brightness of each LED depending on the content of the display.  Light is distributed within a group of LEDs with extreme accuracy, enabling the display to be illuminated more precisely than previously possible.  In turn, it completely turns off backlighting in the dark parts of the image, making black as black can be.  This technique of dimming or brightening certain parts of the display results in incredible, high contrast picture quality and low power consumption.
