One of the most prominent features of the latest M Series line-up is the full array backlit display panel with local dimming. This feature consist of zones or clusters of LED’s across the display panel. This allows for deeper blacks and better contrast by effectively dimming (darkening) the precise area of the image that needs it by shutting off those LED’s in that area. Most other brands of LED HDTV’s manufactured today use edge lit LED designs.
