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.
