The wattage on the back of a device is typically the max it will run after any initial in-rush currents(capacitors, backlight strikes, etc.).

Does this TV advertise LED backlighting?

Usually the only controllable aspect of power consumption in an LCD display is how much power is consumed in the backlight usually its the brightness or white level settings or in some cases they just change it around and call them by whatever energy saving name they feel is most marketable.

48 watts sure is much less than the 230 watts that my 1080p projector is rated for that I use to watch movies. If only I had the throw distance to produce the 300 inch screen would the wattage make the most efficient sense. I wonder how the neighbors would react if I projected a movie on the back of the house at night.
