AVS Forum: "TCL and Hisense are gearing up to join the QLED party in a big way"

Mark Henninger, writing for AVS Forum:

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.

Quantum Dot TV Comparison

If you've been looking for the best new HDR TV for your living room, you've probably found yourself clicking through jargon-filled reviews loaded with terms like "OLED," "Quantum Dot," "nits," "color gamut," and "high dynamic range" to name a few. Most consumers don't find themselves using these words every day so it can be tough to know which ones really make a difference to your TV watching experience.

While technical reviews are an important resource, we believe "seeing is believing" when it comes to the image quality.

Samsung 2017 QLED TV certified as ULTRA HD PREMIUM™

Samsung's new 2017 QLED TV line-up is certified by the UHD Alliance (UHDA) as Ultra HD Premium. The new line-up includes the Samsung Q9, Q8 and Q7 models that all feature the Quantum Dot technology licensed by Nanosys.

Quantum Dot technology is helping to drive UltraHD TV adoption by enabling TV makers to create devices with a brighter, more colorful and lifelike image that exceeds the UltraHD Premium standard.

USA Today: Should you buy an LED, OLED and QLED

As the new Samsung QLED TV hits the market, TV buyers have been wondering, what the differences are between an OLED TV and a QLED TV?

Marc Saltzman from USA Today clears up the confusion with a detailed comparison between the 3 types of TVs on the market. He found the Quantum Dot technology in the latest QLEDs delivers fantastic contrast, color and reliability compared to sets based on OLED.

  • "Quantum dot TVs can match the “infinite” contrast ratio of OLED, delivering exceptionally dark blacks and whiter whites, and offer higher brightness than OLED TVs."
  • "These [QLED] TVs boast a wider, more true-to-life color palette – especially when it comes to reds, greens, and cyans – compared to OLED-based displays."
  • Unlike OLED materials, quantum dots are inorganic, which translates to longer-lasting displays and don’t suffer from any “burn-in” (ghost image) issues, though LG has added technologies to mitigate this.

Wired: Samsung's New Quantum Dots Serve Up Some Tasty Colors

Tim Moynihan, writing for Wired on the just-launched 2017 Samsung QLED TVs which feature Quantum Dot technology licensed from Nanosys:

“The fact that [Quantum Dots are] brighter, more powerful, and much more focused allows you to add more layers without impacting the color volume or off-angle viewing,” says Louis Masses, director of communications at Samsung. “Normally, if you put another layer on the panel, it dims everything. You lose color, you lose brightness. But here, the brightness and the efficiency allows you to put on a layer that helps improve black levels.”

To be sure, the Q-Series panels I saw at CES earlier this year provided a richer, more vibrant, and more nuanced picture than their predecessors... More impressive, it provided greater detail and richer color at high brightness levels than the LG OLED next to it.

Samsung Launches 2017 Quantum Dot TVs

Samsung officially launched their 2017 Quantum Dot TVs this week. First shown at CES 2017, the new sets are being marketed as QLED TVs and feature Quantum Dot technology licensed from Nanosys. According to the Korea Herald:

Samsung Electronics Co. on Wednesday launched a new line-up of its high-tech televisions using quantum dot technology, as it seeks to strengthen its market share in the global premium TV market. 

Quantum dot TVs offer better picture quality and cheaper manufacturing costs than organic light-emitting diode TVs.

HD Guru: New Quantum Dot Ultra HDTV Flavors On The Way from Nanosys

At CES, Nanosys announced 25 new products across a host of brands...

Meanwhile, the company also discussed next generation quantum dot solutions, and even demonstrated a forthcoming quantum dot color filter replacement technology for the first time. Nanosys calls this color-filter approach “Photo-Emissive” quantum dots, and it’s poised to revolutionize future generations of LED LCD TVs by allowing existing quantum dot tech “to effectively double the efficiency of an LCD, bringing better benefits to not only LED LCD TVs but to OLED, WOLED or microLED displays as well.

Paul Thurrott names two Quantum Dot monitors to "Best of CES 2017" list

Paul Thurrott highlights Samsung displays with Quantum Dot technology for both Best Display and Best Curved display in his CES 2017 review:

Samsung’s curved displays garnered a lot of attention in the company’s booth and for good reason: They’re absolutely stunning. Our favorite was the Samsung CF791 Quantum Dot Display, which features a 1,500R curvature and an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio in its 34-inch edgeless frame. It provides a resolution of 3440 x 1440, a 125 percent sRGB color space, a best-in-class 3000:1 contrast ratio with deep blacks and AMD Freesync for you gamers in the audience. It’s truly impressive.

DisplayDaily: New White Paper Discusses QD vs. OLED TV Battle

Chris Chinnock, writing for DisplayDaily:

A new white paper from Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) provides an analysis of quantum dot (QD) TVs vs. OLED TVs. It discusses the technology trends of the two but adds some unique perspective on the manufacturing capabilities of the two technologies – which can indeed be a determining factor in establishing a leadership position. The paper also provides a forecast...

Clearly, this group does not see a big change in the percentage of OLED TVs going forward, but a big change in QD-enabled TVs.

DigitalTrends: Sharp’s P9500 Series Quantum Dot Tv Stands Out In A Jam-Packed 2017 Lineup

Kris Woulk, writing for DigitalTrends about the just-announced Sharp P9500 with Quantum Dot technology from Nanosys:

With Ultra HD Premium certification, the P9500 is referred to as the “crown jewel” of Sharp’s 2017 lineup. Alongside the quantum dot technology and HDR, this model also features Motion 480, for smooth, articulate motion in fast-moving scenes in movies or TV, especially sports. Full array local dimming makes for some of the the darkest blacks outside of an OLED TV, and the Revelation upscaler takes standard and high-definition content and scales it to near-4K quality.

NVIDIA merges Quantum Dot and HDR to build "Holy Grail" of PC displays

Brad Chacos writing for PC World on NVIDIA's new  G-Synch gaming monitors which feature Nanosys Quantum Dot technology for an awesome, up close HDR gaming experience

Nvidia's first HDR G-Sync monitors are basically the holy grail of PC displays

Nvidia introduced its own HDR G-Sync gaming monitors, and woo boy do they sound badass…the first HDR G-Sync panels shine at a whopping 1,000 nits of brightness, with 384 backlight zones that can be individually controlled to help the brightest colors and deepest blacks coexist side-by-side. That’s because HDR’s core purpose is to greatly expand the dynamic color range of displays; to that effect, these first G-Sync HDR monitors support the HDR-10 standard, along with a DCI-P3 cinema grade (read: swanky and accurate) color gamut bolstered by the addition of a Quantum Dot Enhancement Film.
