LG Display describes their new LCD technology as ‘Backlight Data Signal Switching Technology’ (…use of selective reflection plates in existing backlight panels…), giving laptops users the ability to switch from backlight-illuminated to sunlight-illuminated (outdoor reflective mode) screen at a touch of a button (no auto detection?). LG Display’s new technology will also one day increases battery life (sunlight-illuminated LCD panel requires less energy) and improves visibility (sunlight-illuminated LCD panel has higher contrast ratios than common LCD panels).

Take note that LG Display will show off its 14.1-inch sunlight-illuminated LCD panel in the upcoming CES 2009. Can’t wait to see the real thing!
