Come join Heejae Kim, Ph.D, Nanosys Marketing and Business Development Director at the MicroLED Display TechDay in San Jose on June 27 at 5:15PM. Kim will discuss in detail the requirements for quantum dot color converters for micro-LED display and the current development status of quantum dots for this application.
Ray Shaw discusses how HDR can help PC and perphieral makers to differenciate their products on iTWire.
"Demand growth of HDR-capable monitors for gaming is especially robust as many games support HDR.... Starting this year, panel makers have additionally introduced solutions for their TV technology into their monitors. For example, higher end monitor panels have incorporated direct backlight with as many as 384 local dimming zones. Panel makers have also used QDEF (Quantum Dot Enhancement Film) to achieve wider colour gamut."
Chris Chinnock, founder and president of Insight Media, talks about the advancement of Nanosys Quantum Dots in the upcoming years.
"Alternatively, one can consider an ink printing process that is additive and more appropriate for direct-view displays. The key question here is can you define sub-pixel structures that meet the performance and manufacturing requirements? Here again, Nanosys, working with partners, claims to be solving this problem. In their back room, they showed images of 180 x 580 micron printed color filters with embedded quantum dots and a 5 micron thickness that is now very close to meeting manufacturer requirements."
David Savastano, writing for Printed Electronics Now, covers Nanosys' success and growth over the past few years and winning the Component of the Year at SID Display Week for the second time:
"With more than 300 issued or pending patents, Nanosys, Inc. is a key leader in the QD field. Founded in 2001, Nanosys is noted for its Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) technology, which appears in TVs, monitors, tablets and displays. The company operates the world’s largest quantum dot nanomaterials fab, with manufacturing capacity for more than 25 tons of quantum dot materials annually."
These new displays achieve 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and feature Quantum Dot tech developed by Nanosys. Stefan Etienne, writing for TechCrunch on the first impressions of the new displays from E3. :
Samsung is updating its curved gaming monitor lineup with a slew of new technologies. Coming in 27, 31.5 and 49-inch versions, they’re called the C27HG70, C32HG70 and C49HG90, respectively. They blend the best current monitor technologies, into a package that at first glance seems pretty ideal... everyone from enthusiast PC gamers, eSports professionals, to editors and video professionals could have a field day with this gear.
Sweta Dash, writing for DisplayDaily, breaks down all the latest display innovation found at last month's SID DisplayWeek show in Los Angeles. She highlights Nanosys' award winning Hyperion Quantum Dot materials as a key innovation for LCDs.
"In general, technology prototypes take years to be commercialized. Some products never even get a chance for mass production. But, in recent years, display application market growth-rates have been slowing down. The battle for survival and dominance between LCD and OLED technology has been heating up. Next generation product innovation has become a necessity for survival."
Scott Wilkinson, Michael Heiss and Chris Chinnock discusses the future of displays after attending SID Display Week 2017 on Home Theater Geeks Episode 356.
"Topics include color conversion of blue light to longer-wavelength colors using quantum dots and phosphors, the various forms of QLED technology (photo-enhanced, photo-emissive, electro-emissive), an early demonstration of a full-color electro-emissive QD display, bendable OLED screens, micro LED, microdisplays, AR/VR, lightfield displays, a transparent flat-panel directional speaker, answers to chat-room questions, and more."
Optics.org on Nanosys' Component of the Year award at DisplayWeek 2017
During Display Week, quantum dot developer Nanosys received the Display Component of the Year award for its Hyperion Quantum Dot technology from the Society for Information Display. The award was presented on Wednesday, May 24th at 2017 Display Industry Awards (DIAs), during the expo.
Scott Wilkinson, writing for AVS Forum, highlights Nanosys announcements at DisplayWeek 2017 including next-generation Photo-Emissive display tech and the company's Component of the Year Award for Hyperion Quantum Dots:
One of the booths I visited this year was Nanosys, maker of quantum dots and QD films used by Samsung, Vizio, TCL, Hisense, and others in high-end LCD TVs. At CES last January, I wrote about the company’s plan to replace the tiny red and green color filters in LCD TVs with red and green quantum dots. Light from blue LEDs in the backlight stimulate the QDs to glow red or green, and the amount of light emitted by each subpixel is modulated by the LCD shutter associated with that subpixel.
In their booth on the floor of the Society for Information Display's Display Week at the Los Angeles Convention Center yesterday, some of the folks at quantum-dot-maker Nanosys seemed almost giddy. Samsung's 2017 QLED TV sets, which use Nanosys-licensed QD technology, are a significant critical success, and the company's Hyperion QD technology, which was featured in the booth, is in TV sets from Hisense, TCL and others that should be on the market early next year at prices that should perhaps half that of Samsung's 2017 QLED sets...
Honorees Reflect The State Of The Art In Display Technology
The Society for Information Display (SID) today revealed the recipients of the 22nd annual Display Industry Awards, to be presented at the annual Display Week awards luncheon. This year's honorees – along with the Best-in-Show and I-Zone winners – will be recognized on Wednesday, May 24, at the Los Angeles Convention Center during Display Week 2017, which runs from May 21-26.
Display Week 2017 in Los Angeles is just two weeks away! As you plan your attendance be sure not to miss out on the latest Quantum Dot technology from Nanosys at events throughout the week and stop by our booth (#321) to see the latest demos in person.
Read on for a detailed list of Nanosys events at the show...
Pultizer-nominated business journalist Russ Banham has written up a fantastic, detailed look at the development of Quantum Dot technology for displays, from their discovery in the early 1980's to today's HDR TVs. His piece includes great interviews with Nanosys CEO, Jason Hartlove, and scientific co-founder Dr. Paul Alivisatos. The full article can be read at Forbes BrandVoice and is sponsored by Samsung. Here's a brief snippet:
As a testament to the growing prominence of quantum dot technology, Samsung at CES 2017 unveiled three QLED TVs — a new line of 4K displays based on quantum dots that the company developed in association with Nanosys.
For the past several years, Samsung has been the largest strategic investor in Nanosys and works closely with the California company on research and development...
“Having a TV in your home that can reproduce all of the colors you’d expect to see in a movie theater with a professional-quality projector is pretty amazing,” Hartlove said.
Brad Chacos, writing for PC World:
After teasing it at CES in January, Acer pulled back more of the curtain on one of the most badass, feature-filled PC monitors ever at the company’s Next@Acer event in New York on Thursday: the beastly Predator X27...
Acer’s loaded the Predator X27 with basically every feature you can ask for: 4K resolution, a blisteringly fast 144Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, 99 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space, 178-degree viewing angles, Tobii eye-tracking, and bleeding-edge Quantum Dot enhancement film technology.
The opening address of the Forum, given by CECC Vice Chairman Liu Yufeng, noted that about 3 million QLED TVs sold in 2017 and expectations are that number will double in 2017 to 6 million. Even more dramatically, there’s an expectation that sales of QLEDs will triple in 2018 and exceed 18 million units. Sounds to me like TCL and Hisense are gearing up to join the QLED party in a big way.
