JVC joins the race to thinner flat-panel TV by unveiling a prototype 32-inch television that's just 7-millimeters thick. The TV set is one of the thinnest yet developed and, like a similar prototype that Samsung Electronics showed, benefits from the use of an LED backlight. The backlight sits behind the LCD panel and generates the light that shines through it to allow the image to be seen. Most LCD panels use thicker backlights that make use of fluorescent lights but LEDs are fast finding favor with TV makers for their thinness and better overall light.
