It has been a little while since LG left the response time race. From this point of view, they always are a "few milliseconds" late: they have just unveiled their 2 ms monitor.
The technological innovation this year is the contrast ratio increase of TN monitors to 1600:1.
The DFC for Digital Fine Contrast is based on the automatic contrast booster of the monitor internal color table (the Look Up Table, LUT). They apparently actually play on the gamma: they darken dark areas, increase the luminosity of the bright ones and push the vivacity of intermediates shades…
According to LG, the result would be ideal in videos. Let's hope that it will also signify the disappearance of twinkling effects for TN monitors.
This DFC also comes with a replacement of CCFL tubes by a new generation that is capable of a wider gamut.
They would increase the NTSC space cover from 72 to 90 percent thanks to better results mainly in greens and reds.
