Think of this as “Part 2” of my last Display Daily on September 10th, where I discussed Canon and its upcoming support for ITU-R BT.2020. In that DD, I said, “lamps, LEDs and laser/phosphor systems simply cannot make the full [BT.2020] color gamut”.
Nanosys believes that by adjusting the blue filter on LCDs, they can reach 97% of the BT.2020 gamut
I heard from Jeff Yurek, Corporate Communications Manager at Nanosys Inc (Milpitas, CA). Nanosys and their quantum dots (QDs) can’t do it either, but Yurek says they can come close. Currently, Yurek says they can do 91% of the BT.2020 color gamut with the standard color filters on the LCD. He believes they can do up to 97% of the BT.2020 color gamut with their current quantum dots and optimizing only the blue color filter used on LCD panels.
