A dynamic global backlight dimming algorithm is proposed based on the analysis of the Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF) of 12 local images histogram. For each image, the proposed algorithm decided Backlight Luminance (BL) dynamically from maximum CDF luminance ratio of 12 local regions instead of the value of the whole image. Ratios of backlight luminance are defined between 0.6 and 0.9, in order to preserve quality of images and decrease power consumption. The experimental results show that the improved method significantly improves the image quality of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and substantially reduces the power consumption, which also meets requirement of the PSNR rule.

Dynamic backlight plays an important role in reducing power consumption of liquid crystal displays. Considering it is more important to make sure a high quality of the displayed image when reducing power consumption, a new algorithm was proposed for local backlight dimming of liquid crystal displays. According to the algorithm, PSNR (the peak signal-to-noise ratio) = 30 was the lowest standard to guarantee the quality of image, by which the backlight luminance was gained and the distortion was controlled into a certain range. Meanwhile, a method is also proposed to simplify the calculation. Successive searches will be made on the basis of the 0.7, 0.8 and 0.9 times of the maximum luminance, and stop when R PSNR ≥ 30. In order to guarantee the quality of the image, the 0.7 times of the maximum luminance is used as the minimum backlight luminance. It saves much time in calculation and is better applied in hardware.
