Samsung continues to dominate the global TV market on the strength of premium SUHD Quantum Dot TVs that were first announced at CES in 2015. The tech-giant picked up a "double-crown" grabbing the top spots in both units shipped and revenue over the last year. This is exciting news for Nanosys, the Silicon Valley nanotech leader who developed and licensed the Quantum Dot technology inside Samsung's latest sets.
According to global market research firm IHS on March 1, Samsung Electronics held the top spot in the global TV market last year, taking 27.5 percent in annual sales and 21 percent in shipments. Samsung is leading the premium TV market on the back of SUHD TV models with quantum dot displays.
This year, it is planning to strengthen the premium TV market invasion with the 2016 Quantum Dot Display SUHD TV lineup, which integrates its advanced technologies. The Samsung SUHD TVs, which use eco-friendly quantum dot displays, features the ability to provide a premium high dynamic range (HDR) experience, with 1,000 nit HDR minimum for a higher level of contrast between light and dark images, and 10-bit Quantum dot display, offering remarkable true-to-life picture quality.
