Microsoft’s latest patent could revolutionize the way gaming is experienced on modern LED/LCD screens. The technology, called Pixel Luminesce for Digital Display, includes an EM gate driver that can control the brightness of individual pixels, adding the pixel dimming functionality typically found in OLEDs to traditional LED monitors.

This innovative process involves a lighting controller that sends a pulse-width modulated signal to a series of pixels, allowing parts of the screen to be brighter while others are darker. This not only improves color accuracy but also works in conjunction with VRR technology for variable refresh rates.

The benefits of this technology extend beyond just gaming, as it also leads to improved power efficiency, making it suitable for Windows-based laptops and mobile devices. For PC gamers, Pixel Luminesce for Digital Display aims to bring LED displays closer to the immersion offered by OLED displays by improving dynamic contrast in images.

The patent addresses issues related to pulse width modulated signals and VRR displays, ensuring that the technology is effectively integrated into gaming, media and productivity applications. While specific details about how this technology will be implemented in displays and Windows are still unclear, Microsoft has stated that Pixel Luminesce for Digital Display is compatible with a range of display technologies including OLED, KLED, micro-LED and LCD.
