Nanosys has won the SID Display Week 2017 Component of the Year Award for it's Hyperion Quantum Dot technology. These new quantum dots enable displays to meet the BT.2020 ultra-high-definition (UHD) color standard without requiring an exemption to the Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive issued by the European Union.
Nanosys Quantum Dot Enhancement Film wins 5th Consecutive award at SID DisplayWeek with another "Best In Show"
Nanosys also won an award in the small-exhibit category for its quantum-dot TVs. Nanosys’s Display Week demonstration included three matched 65-in. UHD TVs (Fig. 6). Each of the sets used the same color filters, underlying LEDs and direct-lit backlight structures. They were also driven at the same settings from the same content. The only difference was in the phosphor used to create white light in the backlight. These were: conventional white LEDs, Nanosys’s Quantum-Dot-Enhancement Film, and Nanosys’ Cadmium-Free Quantum-Dot- Enhancement Film. The differences in color performance without noticeable brightness loss were striking. Rec.2020 color-gamut coverage ranged from <60% for the white LED set to ~75% for the set with cadmium-free quantum dots to >90% for the set with quantum dots. This demonstration showed that cadmium-based quantum dots have a significant performance advantage over other phosphor materials and that Rec.2020 is achievable today. •
Nanosys Quantum Dot technology is a 3-Time winner of the Society for Information Display's prestigious Best In Show Award. This year the award was given for Nanosys' collaboration with Dolby for a display with a true-to-life experience. The stunning display shows 2,000 nits of peak brightness, DCI-P3 color gamut and 16 F-stops of dynamic range– without drawing more power than a standard display thanks to super-efficient Quantum Dots from Nanosys.
