contrast ratio
Last modified: Tuesday, February 04, 2003 

In reference to computer monitors, the measurement of the difference in light intensity between the brightest white and the darkest black. Contrast ratio is often used in marketing computer monitors, where a high contrast ratio, such as 400:1, represents a better color representation (the better the information will appear against a darker background) on the monitor than a lower contrast ratio, such as 150:1.

The term is used more frequently in reference to LCD monitors than CRT monitors.
