In this paper, I propose dynamic gamma control (DGC) as a new contrast enhancement technology for liquid crystal displays. Unlike conventional technologies involving the manipulation of digital image data, DGC modifies analog gamma reference voltages in accordance with the image data distribution. A digital gamma buffer (DGB) and a new system architecture were developed for DGC implementation. Experimental results show that DGC can increase the contrast ratio of 5 images twofold on average.
