Nanosys and LG Innotek Receive Best of CES 2011 Enabling Technology Award

Nanosys Emerging Technology award at CES 2011

Next generation LED displays will have exceptional color quality, lower power usage

Nanosys congratulates LG Innotek (LGIT) on winning the CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award  in the Enabling Technologies product category for their QD BLU, an LED display backlight unit that incorporates Nanosys’ QuantumRail™ technology.


Nanosys and LGIT have worked together over the last year to develop a new approach to LED display backlighting, based on quantum dot technology, that will enable the screens of mobile devices to display richer colors while using less energy. A demonstration of the QD BLU will be featured at LGIT’s booth at the 2011 International CES January 6-9, 2011.
