With the Consumer Electronics Show finally underway a lot of expectation rides on the new TVs that are set to be on display. Every year the TVs become larger and clearer but this year Sony is introducing their new TV which uses a new type of LED, producing more crystal clarity than ever before.

This new Crystal LED TV prototype actually uses six-million miniscule light-emitting diodes to create an image that is crystal clear. It uses the same technology that you would find in the screens used at a majority of professional sporting events, which is different from the technology used in regular LED displays that already exist on the market. LEDs are used as a backlight for LCD TVs on existing LED TVs.

Some of the improved experiences viewers can gain from a display like this include low power consumption and a wider viewing display than LCD display TVs as well as a faster video image response time and improved color range and contrast. According to the report at TG Daily, Sony is claiming the video image response time is approximately 10 times faster, the color gamut is 1.4 times larger and the contrast is 3.5 times higher in light environments.

This TV achieves these improvements by mounting ultrafine LEDs in each of the RGB colors (Red-Green-Blue), one per pixel. By doing this the light efficiency is dramatically improved according to Sony. The company expects the technology used in this TV will compete with that used in OLED TVs. If you’re interested in getting your hands on a TV like this we unfortunately do not have any details on when the product will become available, but one thing we do know is that when it does become available it won’t be cheap.
