LED, LCD, OLED, 4K, UHD … the last thing the TV industry needs right now is another techno-acronym. But TV tech being the ever-evolving juggernaut that it is, we were bound to have to embrace new terminology at some point. Turns out, that point is now, and the term — which will be the buzzword de rigeur in 2015 — is quantum dots. Although we’re glad to be spared another acronym, the term “quantum dot” not only fails to explain what the tech does, but the subject matter is pretty heady stuff, too.
