OLEDs, Quantum Dots Make Gains in the Display Market

Printed Electronics Now's Dave Savastano recently caught up with Russell Kempt, Nanosys VP of Sales, for an update on Quantum Dot technology in the TV market:

“More than half of the premium TVs sold in the US over the last 12 months featured quantum dot technology from Nanosys,” said Russell Kempt, VP of sales and marketing for Nanosys. “As the costs of adopting quantum dots have come down it is now becoming possible for set-makers to waterfall the technology across their product lineups. As a result, we’re beginning to see quantum dot technology entering the mainstream market for TVs with several 65” TV products available below $1,500 by the end of this year.”

Quantum Dot TV among Oprah's "Favorite Things" for 2018

Influential talk show host and media personality Oprah recently published her list of “Favorite Things” for 2018. The only TV on her list this year is a Quantum Dot TV, the Samsung Q7F.

Oprah names Samsung Q7 QLED Quantum Dot TV to her “Favorite Things” 2018 list

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last 20 years, the “Favorite Things” list is much more than a simple holiday shopping guide. Oprah first started sharing the list on her talk show in the mid-1990’s and the segment quickly became famous for fun, frenzied audience reactions to her gifts (it was even immortalized on SNL). Like snowflake-themed Starbucks cups, Oprah’s list has become a symbol of the holiday season here in the US.

I then go through every item, picking my favorites and narrowing the selection to my own. It’s a process. Because it’s important for me to remain as true to my original inspiration as possible. My guideline: Do I really like it enough to want to receive it myself?
— Oprah

Today, the list stretches to over 100 items and requires a dedicated team of curators to pull together. Still, in her note announcing this year’s list, Oprah notes that she personally reviews every item with one simple criteria in mind: “do I like it enough to want to receive it myself?”

This marks a big milestone in Quantum Dot technology’s journey to mainstream adoption and consumer awareness. We’re proud to see our technology on Oprah’s list!

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.

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

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.”

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.

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."
