Dolby and SIM2 announces high-dynamic-range LCD flat screen

This is pretty darn weird. Dolby and SIM2 have created an HDR system for backlighting images using a backlight copy of the image to increase brightness where it needs it an reducing brightness in darker areas. Take a look at the image above. Rather than backlighting the entire image, SIM2 will only light some parts of it, thereby reducing washed out pictures associated with most projectors and LCDs. No availability just yet but it’s an interesting concept.
