LG Display announced a new 14.1-in LCD for notebook computers with Backlight Data Signal Switching Technology that makes use of the selective reflection plates that are used in current LCDs to change from low luminance settings (used indoors or at night) to high luminance setting (used in direct sunlight). The LG LCD panel is reportedly the first LCD to offer a button that allows users to switch to outdoor reflective mode with the touch of a button.

LG also says that the new LCD resolves visibility issues with a contrast ratio over 9:1 when used outdoors in reflective mode. LG claims that normal LCDs have a contrast ratio ranging from 2:1 to 3:1 when used outdoors.
