Robert Heron and Patrick Norton discussed the next generation of Nanosys Quantum Dot TV tech

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 Launches Quantum Dot-Powered "World's First" DisplayHDR 1000 Monitor

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."

Blog: What is the “Color Gamut” of a Fireworks Show?

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!

Nanosys Blog: 2018 World Cup – Watching in 4K HDR makes a difference

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.

Printed Electronics Now: Nanosys, DIC and Inkjet Printed Quantum Dots

David Savastano of Printed Electronics Now recently sat down with Nanosys and DIC executives to discuss their successful collaboration to develop ink jet printed Quantum Dots for displays. The breakthrough could change the way displays are made, bringing better efficiency and color to displays of all types from LCD to OLED to microLED. According to Russell Kempt, Nanosys Vice President of Sales and Marketing:

“We expect to see the first printed devices in the market within the next two years,” Kempt added. “Looking ahead, printed quantum dots can also help solve manufacturing yield issues for microLED displays, which today rely on a complex ‘pick and place’ process to create all three colors from millions of individual LEDs. With printed quantum dots we can simply the system, accelerating microLED technology’s path to market over the next couple of years.
