Vizio P-Series Quantum Review Round-up Round 2

Since its release just over three months ago the Vizio P Series Quantum has racked up quite a few glowing reviews from critics. Reviewers have widely praised the set for its awesome image quality and great value enabled by Quantum Dot technology.

We chronicled highlights from several of those reviews in a post back in September (Hyperlink: http://www.nanosysinc.com/in-the-news-archive/2018/9/18/vizio-p-series-quantum-review-round-up) and there have been quite a few more since then. So, today we're back with a few more reviews of one of our favorite TVs of 2018:

Nanosys at DSCC Future of Display Technology and Markets

On November 6th, DSCC will bring a group of the most influential speakers on the future of quantum dot technology and its market outlook lead by Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove. Quantum dots are unique in that they have the opportunity to become a significant part of the LCD, OLED and microLED markets as those technologies strive for improved color performance, higher brightness and in some cases lower costs. In addition, as quantum dot material performance improves, it has the potential to become its own emissive display technology.

Top Milpitas Employers Open Doors to Local Students for Manufacturing Day 2018

Fifty high school students from Milpitas and Calaveras Hills high schools learned about career opportunities with local high tech manufacturers at the second annual Milpitas Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 5. 

The event, co-sponsored by the City of Milpitas, Milpitas Unified School District, and Milpitas Economic Development Commission, is part of a community effort to increase awareness of the opportunities for good-paying jobs for young people in local manufacturing careers. 

Two local firms—View Inc. (https://viewglass.com) that builds “smart windows” with dynamic glass, and Nanosys (http://www.nanosysinc.com/), a leading developer of quantum dot technology for electronic displays—opened their doors to students and other representatives from the Milpitas community.

IHS Markit: Quantum Dot TV outpaces OLED TV growth in 2019

IHS Markit sees robust growth continuing for large screens with consumers attracted to aggressive deals on larger 65” TVs. Advanced technologies like Quantum Dots are benefiting from this growth. IHS modeling shows Quantum Dot out-pacing OLED growth with a CAGR of over 37% and over 6.5 million QDTVs shipped in 2020.

In a news release, IHS analysts called out Quantum Dot technology’s transition to mainstream TV pricing as a key driver:

“The high-end prices of non-QD-equipped LCD TV models and the prices of the low end QD-equipped LCD TV models have moved closer together,” Gagnon said. “This extension of the quantum dot LCD TV lineup into more moderate price ranges effectively reduces the quantum dot premium to less than 100 percent at mid-range sizes, opening up the category to a larger addressable market of consumers.”

InformationDisplay: "The 800-Pound Gorilla in the Quantum-Dot Room"

Industry analyst Ken Werner, writing for SID’s InformationDisplay magazine, highlighted Nanosys Quantum Dot technology leadership in a review of exciting emissive display technology from the 2018 DisplayWeek show in Los Angeles. According to Ken,

“If you buy a quantum-dot or QD-enhanced LCD TV, it will have quantum dots made by or licensed by Nanosys. There are other quantum-dot companies operating in this industry – but for some reason those dots don’t appear in products any of us buy.

In its booth, Nanosys showed technology demos that included one for ink-jetted QD matrices to replace the matrix color filters used in current LCDs. Another showed early- stage electroluminescent QDs.

Also shown in the booth, and new to me… the Vizio P Series Quantum TV with Nanosys’s Hyperion QD film and 192 full-array local dimming zones delivered an impressive image.”

Nanosys at OLEDs World Summit

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.

Display Daily: Media Turmoil and The Future of 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.

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 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.
