Will the Mini LED bring the TV revolution?

Several manufacturers have taken the stage with their Mini LED TVs. But what is it and why can it be good?

Mini LED

TV manufacturers typically present their innovations for a given year in the first two months of the year, i.e. the models and technologies they want to plan for the market. These presentations and product demonstrations usually take place at large tech exhibitions and exclusive conferences, however, in 2021, due to the global coronavirus epidemic, they were not held in their traditional form, but they were not left behind, they just moved to the virtual space. The manufacturers have used various online forums and communication channels for this, so pandemic here or there, we can already see what they are preparing for this year, what we can expect from them.

It is already clear that many companies this year will place great emphasis on so-called Mini LED televisions. Samsung, LG, TCL and Philips have also announced, among other things, that they will launch such TVs, which have been said to do a lot of wonderful things in product communication, such as much better colors, more contrast and more realistic end results.


Revolutionary technology

A superficial observer reading the mainstream media tech news or company announcements can easily believe that this is another revolutionary process that is on par with LED LCD, OLED or Micro LED technology. This may have been confirmed by the fact that, for example, LG has created a separate name for this type of device, which it calls QNED, or we could mention TCL, which calls this procedure OD Zero. But the truth is that this is not a completely new, different solution than the previous ones: Mini LED televisions are modified versions of the already well-proven LED LCD devices, in which the backlight has been changed, but not radically.

What is a Mini LED?

Mini LED televisions use much smaller LEDs than previously used light emitting diodes. They are placed in a grid shape, as in the case of Direct-LED devices, only due to the smaller size they can fit much more behind the panel. Whereas previously a maximum of 3-5,000 light-emitting diodes could be housed in a television, now, in the new Mini LEDs, this number can reach 30-35,000. As a result, LEDs can be stacked side by side much more densely and divided into more individually controllable groups than ever before. The number of these on Philips Mini LED TVs is 1,024, but LG, for example, has created 2,500 groups of LEDs with such individually adjustable brightness (even off) in their QNEDs.

Since only the backlight was fumbled, the panel itself could be anything. Samsung and TCL, for example, have supplemented quantum dot QLED displays with this process, LG has packed the Mini LED backlight behind the Nanocell panel using nanocrystals, and Philips is currently combining traditional LCD screens with the technology.
