Microsoft’s innovative pixel-dimming technology to revolutionize display technology by bringing OLED magic to all screens

Microsoft has recently obtained a patent that may revolutionize gaming on modern LED/LCD displays. The technology, called Pixel Luminesce for Digital Display, involves an EM gate driver that can control the brightness of individual pixels, adding pixel-dimming functionality typically found in OLEDs to traditional LED monitors. This new technical process includes a luminance controller that sends a pulse-width modulated signal to a row of pixels, allowing for parts of the screen to be brighter while others are dimmer.

This not only enhances color accuracy but also works in conjunction with VRR technology for variable refresh rates. The benefits of this technology extend to improved power efficiency, making it suitable for laptops and mobile devices running on Windows. For PC gaming, it aims to enhance dynamic contrast in images, bringing LED displays closer to the immersion offered by OLED displays.

The patent addresses issues related to pulse-width modulated signals and VRR displays, ensuring that the technology can be effectively integrated into games, media, and productivity applications. Although the specifics of how this technology will be implemented into displays and Windows are still unclear, the patent indicates that Pixel Luminesce for Digital Display is compatible with a range of display technologies including OLED, QLED, micro-LED, and LCD. As patents can be complex and difficult to interpret, it is hoped that Microsoft will provide more information on this innovative display technology in the near future.
