TCL OD Zero Mini-LED technology
TCL also announced its OD Zero Mini-LED technology that will be introduced in ultra-slim TCL TVs later this year. With this technology, the Mini-LED backlight tech is equipped in a vertical position to enable a slimmer profile on the television set.
As per TCL, “OD Zero represents the optical distance between the Mini-LED backlight layer and the LCD display layer (diffuser plate). It has now been reduced to an astonishing 0mm, to create an ultra-thin backlight module”.
TCL OD Zero Mini-LED should help offer newer and better levels of HDR, with vibrant colour profiles, more depth details, deeper blacks, and better precision in contrast control.
