MicroLED Explained: The Best TV Technology You Might Never Own
The basic concept behind MicroLED is that screens are built using LEDs so small (usually under 50 micrometers) that they represent individual pixels in the image. That's compared with the usual LED TV situation where far bigger LEDs are used in a backlight to light many hundreds or thousands of pixels at once. You don’t have to be Einstein to realise that making a screen where each pixel is its own light source gives you a self-emissive type of display, opening the door to peerless levels of local contrast, colour and general light control. Which should add up to gorgeously natural, detailed, and refined images.
