Sony also displayed what it called high-contrast displays. The industry has a come a long way from the day when just a few backlight sources greatly limited a set's ability to show true black images. Any time that LCDs are used, there will be an issue with contrast ratio, since the LCDs have to block a light source in order to achieve very dark images.
