What does it mean??

Recommended Posts

Yeh, it's the contrast ratio, pretty sure it means that's how many colours it can show. Not quite sure though.

Nope, it's the range of difference between white and black. the uber high number ones are mostly made up to make it look better. "dynamic contrast ratio" the actual contrast is usually around something like 1:1000 for most monitors. (+-10x)

 

 

Wikipedia:

 

There is no official, standardized way to measure contrast ratio for a system or its parts, nor is there a standard for defining "Contrast Ratio" that is accepted by any standards organization so ratings provided by different manufacturers of display devices are not necessarily comparable to each other due to differences in method of measurement, operation, and unstated variables

 

 

Static contrast ratio is the luminosity ratio comparing the brightest and darkest color the system is capable of producing simultaneously at any instant of time, while dynamic contrast ratio is the luminosity ratio comparing the brightest and darkest color the system is capable of producing over time (while the picture is moving).
