LED monitor backlight
LED monitor backlight is an illumination of small liquid crystal display lights attached at the back of the LED Monitor. It can enhance the screen display. In daylight or lighted room, it can compete with the bright surrounding and reduced luminescence. In the darkroom, it can soothe the eyes by giving a slightly bright background. It makes it easier for eyes to look at the monitor without requiring much focus and attention.

Monitor size determines the number of pixels on the screen, the difference between the pixels, and the size of each pixel. They exist from 19 inches to 30 inches. The ideal size and perfect pixel display are available for 22 to 24 inches monitors.
LED Monitor calibration
Monitor calibration is a technique to set the LED monitor colors to a defined standard. For this purpose, spectrophotometer and colorimeter are used. This device hangs through the monitor screen and uses software to adjust the color of the displayed image or screen.
