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.”
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.”
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 share their first impressions of the brand new Vizio P Series Quantum TV on their latest AVexcel podcast. The home theater experts found a lot to like with Quantum Dot color, 2000 nit peak luminance and 192 zones of full array local dimming.
Tokyo, Japan, August 6, 2018 Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd. announces the adoption of its quantum dot film with a wider color gamut of liquid crystal displays for the new quantum dot “P-Series Quantum 65” 4K televisions (to be released in July 2018) produced by the American TV manufacturer VIZIO, Inc. This quantum dot film is designed to reduce the environmental load in accordance with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive.
Our brand new lobby demo TV just arrived... take a little tour of the facility with us while we set it up and get a peek at the actual Quantum Dot materials used in the set! We think the 65 inch Vizio P Series Quantum looks amazing on our wall and it's a great showcase for the image quality benefits of our Quantum Dot technology.
ASUS and Acer both recently released their new 144hz Quantum Dot Gaming monitor. Both panels are able to deliver an incredible 1,000 nits of peak luminance and lifelike color thanks to the Quantum Dot technology inside. These monitors are among the first products to meet the VESA certified HDR1000 certification.
We're always excited to see great new Quantum Dot products hit the market so we've rounded up some of the most notable excerpts from both monitor reviews below.
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."
Philips just launched the world's first shipping monitor with the DisplayHDR 1000 certification, the Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB. Thanks to the Quantum Dots inside, this 43" monitor delivers 1,000-nits peak brightness with wide color gamut.
According to Anton Shilov, writing for Anandtech, "A major selling point of the display it its Quantum Dot-enhanced backlighting that enables it to cover an above-average 97.6% of the DCI-P3 color gamut as well as 100% of the sRGB color range... Apparently, Philips (just like ASUS, MSI, Samsung,and NVIDIA) believes that demand for large gaming-grade displays is about to skyrocket and it has a product that offers premium features at a moderate price."
Chris Chinnock, founder and president of Insight Media, breaks down all the Quantum Dot news from SID DisplayWeek 2018:
"Speakers from Nanosys gave several presentations, conducted a quantum dot workshop and had a booth on the tradeshow floor. They were clearly the most visible and pro-active quantum dot maker at SID this year."
ArmDevices caught up with Nanosys at SID 2018 for a deep dive, 30 minute interview on the future roadmap for Nanosys Quantum Dot technology.
"Jeff Yurek, Nanosys Director of Marketing at SID DisplayWeek 2018 in Los Angeles talks about the Quantum Dots which Nanosys has been developing since its founding in 2001. Jeff walks me through the company’s technology roadmap to explain how Quantum Dots can be used in displays of all types from LCDs to OLEDs to microLEDs and even emissive Quantum Dot displays of the future."
Samsung released their QLED line up earlier this year. According to Samsung, their flagship Q9FN delivers an incredible 2,000 nits of peak luminance and truly cinematic color thanks in part to the Quantum Dot technology inside.
We're always excited to see great new Quantum Dot products hit the market so we've rounded up some of the most notable excerpts from the Samsung QLED Q9FN reviews below.
The SID's DisplayWeek 2018 trade show is a wrap! It was a busy week for Nanosys with five featured presentations, several new technology demonstrations and a number of great new QD devices on display.

David Savastano of Printed Electronics Now recently sat down with Nanosys and DIC executives to discuss their successful collaboration to develop ink jet printed Quantum Dots for displays. The breakthrough could change the way displays are made, bringing better efficiency and color to displays of all types from LCD to OLED to microLED. According to Russell Kempt, Nanosys Vice President of Sales and Marketing:
“We expect to see the first printed devices in the market within the next two years,” Kempt added. “Looking ahead, printed quantum dots can also help solve manufacturing yield issues for microLED displays, which today rely on a complex ‘pick and place’ process to create all three colors from millions of individual LEDs. With printed quantum dots we can simply the system, accelerating microLED technology’s path to market over the next couple of years.
This week on our blog, we weighed in on an important scientific debate. Are tennis balls green or yellow?
"According to tennis legend Roger Federer, tennis balls are very definitely yellow. He’s certainly an expert when it comes to tennis but how is his color accuracy? We applied some basic science to answer this important question once and for all. The answer might surprise you..."
