During this week’s Integrated Systems Europe Show held in the Netherlands, SIM2 Multimedia and Dolby Laboratories unveiled the latest version of the Solar Series – an LCD TV using LEDs and Dolby Vision HDR (high dynamic range) local dimming technology. The 47-inch TV showcased Dolby’s proprietary algorithm which controls LEDs behind the LCD panel.

Dolby is able to control each LED individually in harmony with the image being presented, and by selectively turning off LEDs, can produce a true black.  This Solar Series LCD TV features FullHD 1,920 x 1080p resolution, 16-bit processing for HDR signals, the ability to display 65,536 shades for each color.  There are 2,206 LEDs contained in the unit, and these can produce brightness up to 4,000 cd/m2.

The first launch of the Solar Series is slated for the second quarter of 2009, and is geared towards professional use.  The consumer iteration will be launched during the CEDIA Expo in September.
