Abstract— A strategy is presented for reducing the power consumed by the fluorescent backlight in an active‐matrix liquid‐crystal display (AMLCD). This strategy centers on dynamically minimizing the backlight intensity, based on the content of the images being displayed. Implementation of this dynamic power‐management strategy requires very little additional logic in the video controller. 1995 Society for Information Display
