One of the most common uses of Light Emitting Diodes is LED television.
An LED TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) television with a LED (Light Emitting Diode) display. An LED display uses Light Emitting Diodes for backlight, and pixels are created by a grid or an array of LEDs.
Monochrome (black and white) television uses white LEDs, while colour television uses LEDs that emit red, green, and blue (RGB) colours. In 1977, James P. Mitchell created the world's first LED television screen.
At first, the display was monochrome (one colour). However, in \(2009\), SONY released the first commercial LED television after nearly three decades.
