OLED shows Apparent Burn-in Issue in just 5 Weeks from RTings’ Comparison Test

During the end of August this year, RTings analysts have begun a burn-in test on 3 different TV panels. The tested subjects were the OLED LG B6, the VA Samsung KU6300 and the IPS LG UJ6300. It was a side by side comparison where the TV was playing a 5.5-hour loop for 20 hours a day with the RTings logo projected on the corners. As you can see on their pictures and test results, in just two weeks, the OLED LG B6 was already showing mild permanent image retention on some of the colors and by week five, the OLED's burn in issue has become apparent.

Quantum Dots can improve display efficiency by 75% in bright rooms according to DisplayMate

Ray Soneira, the display expert behind DisplayMate, posted a piece on test results of Samsung's latest Quantum Dot TVs in real world ambient light. He found that Quantum Dots can help boost a display's power efficiency by 75% by maintaining color accuracy in bright ambient light with lower brightness:

"Since ambient light washes out the on-screen colors, the first step is to enlarge the Native Color Gamut of the display as much as possible. Quantum Dots, which is the technology used in the Samsung 65Q9 TV, can now further expand the Native Color Gamut very efficiently ...

A major advantage for using this advanced technology rather than the current brute force method of just increasing the Picture Brightness in ambient light is that it can produce the same vibrant on-screen colors in ambient light with 75 percent less display power up through 2,000 lux, which is very important for TV energy efficiency, and also very important for Smartphones because they depend on limited battery power."

Yole Développement: Quantum Dot Displays Set to Lead Wide Colour Gamut TV Market

According to Yole Développement, Quantum Dot TVs are set to dominate and lead the wide color gamut TV market. Driven by the availability of high volume QD production from Nanosys and it's extended supply chain, TV makers can rapidly adopt the benefits of Quantum Dots

"With the rapidly improving performance and decreasing cost of quantum dots, enhanced LCD displays will be able to take advantage of an upcoming window of limited production for organic LED (OLED) displays – the other main contender capable of delivering wide colour gamut and high dynamic range – and become widely adopted in mid-high range television displays, thus capturing the majority of the wide colour gamut TV market.

OLEDs require the building of entire new production facilities to incorporate into televisions, creating high cost and technology barriers that make it challenging for companies to enter OLED television panel production."

Forbes: QLED Not OLED Is The Future Of TV Technology

Forbes contributor John Archer breaks down the numbers behind the current TV Tech War with help from veteran display analyst Ross Young

"Delving deeper into some of the reasons why DSCC sees OLED struggling so much over the next few years, the report states that OLED TV production techniques are lagging significantly behind QLED ones. QLED lines running to the so-called 10.5G specification are estimated to be as much as two years ahead of 10.5G OLED lines - a big deal when you consider that 10.5G lines are optimized for production of the 65-inch and 75-inch screens expected to become an increasingly key part of the TV market in the next few years."

Samsung Introduces 88-inch QLED TV

Samsung introduced their new 88-inch QLED TV with Quantum Dots in it. The TV is targeted for the premium TV market and will cost 33 million won (US$29,424).

"Samsung said the quantum dot technology, which utilizes a film of semiconductor nanocrystals to boast far more vivid colors than liquid crystal displays (LCDs), is capable of enhancing viewers' experiences.

The tech giant also applied metalcoating to the quantum dot nanocrystals to develop what it calls "metal quantum dot" technology."

Ken Werner's 30,000 foot view of the display industry at mid-year

Analyst Ken Werner takes a break from the BBQ to share a high-altitude snapshot of the display industry at mid-year for DisplayDaily. He see's OLED gaining ground in small displays such as smartphones and automotive screens but questions whether the technology will scale to larger formats in the face of continued LCD innovations like Quantum Dots:

"There is considerable growth in store for OLED displays in smart phones, other battery-operated devices, and automotive applications. But the growth in TVs may be considerably less than many analysts were predicting just two or three ago."

What Does the Future of TV Tech Look Like?

The annual CE Week TV Shootout is right around the corner. As a preview to that event Rob Scott at Dealerscope met up with display calibration expert Kevin Miller to talk TV tech trends. Quantum dots were part of the conversation of course:

"As far as a new innovative display technology is concerned, the next big development in LCD display technology is Photo Emissive LCD using Quantum Dots. The Blue backlight shines through the LCD panels to stimulate Red and Green Quantum Dots that then create the Red, Green, and Blue light, which eliminates color filters, and should improve off angle viewing, and dramatically increase energy efficiency... There is one very interesting display technology that companies like Nanosys are working on called Electro luminescent (Electro Emissive), which has great potential, because it will eliminate the LCD panels."

iTWire: HDR coming to notebooks, monitors and more

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."
