报告摘要:

Comparing with many other video display technologies, the contrast ratio
of conventional liquid crystal display is poor due to the unavoidable
backlight leakage of liquid crystal cells. One way to solve this problem
is to dynamically control the luminance of a backlight panel consisting
of light emitting diodes . LED-backlit LC displays hold the promise of
improving the image quality while reducing the energy consumption with
signal-dependent local dimming. To fully realize such potentials we
propose a novel local dimming technique that jointly optimizes the
intensities of LED backlights and the attenuations of LC cells . The
objective is to minimize the distortion in luminance reproduction due to
the leakage of LCD and the coarse spatial granularity of the LED
backlights. The optimization task can be formulated as a linear
programming or quadratic programming problem, and both exact and faster
approximate algorithms are proposed. Simulation results demonstrate
superior performances of the proposed algorithms over the existing local
dimming algorithms.
