LEDs are arranged to configure a combination

block and light guide plate to backlight the S-LED

A line of LCD TVs using Hitachi's new S-LED (Slim-block LED) backlight technology (developed in conjunction with Global Lighting Technologies) was unveiled at CEATEC 2010. The brightness of each backlight is independently controlled by a small block of LEDs, producing exceptionally sharp contrasts with clear colors and true deep blacks. Scaling back brightness in black pixels also allows for less power consumption – approximately 27% for the L42 model, and 21% for the L37.
