Quantum Dot displays rocked TouchTaiwan 2018! We've pulled together a short walkthrough video with all the Nanosys highlights in case you missed this year's event.
This short recap video includes a walk-through of the show floor highlighting the latest Nanosys Cadmium Free tech from 8K TVs to HDR gaming monitors. Also features highlights from Nanosys GM for Greater China, Dr. ZhongSheng Luo's talk on next generation Quantum Dot displays.
Quantum Dots are changing the way displays are made. Today, this unique nanomaterial is perfecting LCD displays, enabling a new generation of brighter, more efficient televisions with lifelike colors. This has given LCD technology an important edge as it battles new TV display entrants such as WOLED. What’s next for this novel nanotechnology?
Join Dr. Ruiqing Ma at the OLED World Summit 2018 on September 19, 2018 at 10:00am to learn about the evolving use of Quantum Dots for OLEDs and micro-LED displays, and how they are being developed as emitter materials for future printable electroluminescent displays.
Chris Chinnock writing for DisplayDaily and taking some time during to think big about how changing power dynamics in the media are driving new innovation throughout the display ecosystem. He identifies "realism" as a key trend for display technologies.
"I don’t think there is much doubt that the key trend in display technology is going to be realism. That is, many applications will strive to create a visual and auditory experience that will be very close to what we would perceive as real... higher resolution (8K and beyond), wider dynamic range (to 10K nits), a bigger color gamut (BT 2020 and beyond) will all be pushed forward. It’s going to happen. These technologies will not plateau."
Nanosys Quantum Dot technology is a key enabler of improved "realism" with BT.2020 color gamut, high dynamic range and even resolution.
Robert Heron and Patrick Norton share their first impressions of the brand new Vizio P Series Quantum TV on their latest AVexcel podcast. The home theater experts found a lot to like with Quantum Dot color, 2000 nit peak luminance and 192 zones of full array local dimming.
Tokyo, Japan, August 6, 2018 Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd. announces the adoption of its quantum dot film with a wider color gamut of liquid crystal displays for the new quantum dot “P-Series Quantum 65” 4K televisions (to be released in July 2018) produced by the American TV manufacturer VIZIO, Inc. This quantum dot film is designed to reduce the environmental load in accordance with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive.
Our brand new lobby demo TV just arrived... take a little tour of the facility with us while we set it up and get a peek at the actual Quantum Dot materials used in the set! We think the 65 inch Vizio P Series Quantum looks amazing on our wall and it's a great showcase for the image quality benefits of our Quantum Dot technology.
ASUS and Acer both recently released their new 144hz Quantum Dot Gaming monitor. Both panels are able to deliver an incredible 1,000 nits of peak luminance and lifelike color thanks to the Quantum Dot technology inside. These monitors are among the first products to meet the VESA certified HDR1000 certification.
We're always excited to see great new Quantum Dot products hit the market so we've rounded up some of the most notable excerpts from both monitor reviews below.
Robert Heron and Patrick Norton discussed the next generation of Nanosys Quantum Dot TV tech on the latest AVexcel podcast.
"Back at Display Week 2018 a few weeks ago, Nanosys, the Quantum Dot masters here in California, they worked out a new technology called QDOG. Which was their Quantum Dot on Glass. One of the things about QDOG in particular was that they were able to produce the Quantum Dot material on a glass plane using printable technology, which was a big deal. It didn't require vacuum chambers and vapor deposition or things like that."
Philips just launched the world's first shipping monitor with the DisplayHDR 1000 certification, the Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB. Thanks to the Quantum Dots inside, this 43" monitor delivers 1,000-nits peak brightness with wide color gamut.
According to Anton Shilov, writing for Anandtech, "A major selling point of the display it its Quantum Dot-enhanced backlighting that enables it to cover an above-average 97.6% of the DCI-P3 color gamut as well as 100% of the sRGB color range... Apparently, Philips (just like ASUS, MSI, Samsung,and NVIDIA) believes that demand for large gaming-grade displays is about to skyrocket and it has a product that offers premium features at a moderate price."
Ever wonder why fireworks look so much better in person than on your TV? Guest blogger Allison Harn explains why fireworks are so vivid with a bit of chemistry and color science.
It turns out that many of the super saturated colors of a fireworks show fall well outside the even the massive UltraHD BT.2020 color gamut. It's great example of the kind of experiences that are possible as we push displays closer to reproducing the full capability of the human visual system. In the meantime, it's also a great reminder to leave your TV behind and get outside this Wednesday to see some fireworks in person!
In case you've missed us at the QLED & Advanced Display Summit in Hollywood, here is a quick recap of Nanosys at the event.
Chris Chinnock, founder and president of Insight Media, breaks down all the Quantum Dot news from SID DisplayWeek 2018:
"Speakers from Nanosys gave several presentations, conducted a quantum dot workshop and had a booth on the tradeshow floor. They were clearly the most visible and pro-active quantum dot maker at SID this year."
The Nanosys dot-color blog takes a look at how 4K HDR broadcast is improving the World Cup viewing experience this year.
Over the next month, an estimated 3.4 billion (according to GlobalWebIndex) soccer fans will have an opportunity to watch World Cup games in 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider palette of colors. This means the experience of watching the games on TV will be much closer to being at the stadium in person.
To get a sense of how impactful the change from HDTV to 4K HDR might be for World Cup soccer, I did a quick survey of the country colors for the 2018 World Cup’s top 10 teams according to CBS Sports’ most recent ranking.
