Local dimming

QLED Local dimming

Both the Q70R and Q64R have local dimming techniques that improve contrast. The Direct Full Array background lighting of the Q70R consists of different zones. When the TV shows a dark image, only the lights behind this image are dimmed. This makes the black levels and the contrast extra realistic. The Ultimate UHD Dimming technique of the Q64R analyzes each frame and then creates the optimum image display, making dark scenes of, for example, a starry sky look extra dark. Although this technique clearly improves the contrast, Direct Full Array does this more effectively.
