Quote:Strobed backlight technologies exist in other displays, including scanning backlights in Sony and Samsung HDTV's -- see Existing Technology. LightBoost is only one of the many possible variants of strobed backlight technologies. However LightBoost is the _first_ really good, video-game-friendly strobed backlight technology to arrive on computer monitors, that also has a very clearly noticeable motion blur reduction.
Also, OLED will not necessarily have less motion blur than LCD, because many OLED's are sample-and-hold displays. However, OLED has great potential in being a good impulse-driven technology, but monitor manufacturers may prefer the flicker-free operation (good for photos, static images, less eye strain) over the zero motion blur effect (good for video games, fast motion sports broadcasts, live action, etc.). Ideally, OLED's should be able to support both sample-and-hold and impulse-driven modes. The PS Vita OLED is a sample-and-hold display, however.
TIme will tell what the monitor manufacturers do with OLED, but I expect it will be at least a few years before good OLED displays arrive. In the meantime, is plenty of opportunity for improvements to LCD (e.g. combining IPS with LightBoost or other non-LightBoost strobed backlight technology)
