Impulse type backlight driving reduces motion blur, caused by the sample-and-hold effect of LCD displays. A side effect is that large-area flicker may be introduced as in CRTs. The flicker visibility for various settings of a scanning backlight system and with different 60 Hz video fragments is studied in a perception experiment. Results show that the perceived flicker is considerably reduced for a moving sequence, compared to a still image with the same content.
