What is Dynamic Contrast Ratio?
What does Dynamic Contrast Ratio mean, and why does it matter so much when you're buying a TV? The dynamic contrast ratio is a measurement of the brightest white the HDTV can produce as compared to the blackest black — not necessarily at the same time or in the same scene. With Dynamic Contrast Ratio it is not necessary to have the LCD’s backlights turned up all the way in order to portray darker images. In general, televisions with dynamic contrast adjustment produce a better viewing experience.

Dynamic contrast ratio is a term created to improve the contrast specifications by measuring the difference between white and black in a laboratory setting with no ambient light. As with standard contrast ratio, differences between manufacturers should not be taken to mean that one TV is better than another. Dynamic Contrast basically blows out white detail and destroys black detail. Dynamic Contrast is artificial and will most likely clip information in the image at some point, not allowing you to see the entire intended image.
It is also common to market only the dynamic contrast ratio capability of a display (when it is better than its static contrast ratio), which should not be directly compared to the static contrast ratio. Deep blacks and bright whites are provided courtesy of a Dynamic Contract Ratio of 100K to 1. Deep blacks & bright whites & are provided courtesy of a Dynamic Contract Ratio of 100K to. Both dynamic contrast ratio and static contrast ratio are expressed using a series of numbers, for example, 500:1 or 1000:1.
