Aided by the soaring demand for lighting applications and energy-efficient displays, the market for quantum dots is expected to register an exceptional CAGR of 53.8% during the period from 2013 to 2023 and reach a market value of US$8,246.8 million by the end of the forecast period.
"...quantum dots are the only way to meet the more stringent REC. 2020 color standard. My recent visit to Nanosys Inc., the company that produces the quantum dots for Samsung’s SUHD series, would bear that out. They’re near 90 percent of Rec.2020 and far north of the lesser NTSC."
Chinese TV brand Hisense, which will start selling Sharp-brand TVs for the U.S. market next year, is launching a line of sets under the moniker "ULED," targeting LG's OLED TVs as well as premium LCD sets from other brands.
With TV brands aggressively promoting TVs using quantum dot (QD) solutions, large panel producers as well as small- and medium-sized panel makers started to opt for wide color gamut display solutions. With this, the wide color gamut display market is expected to grow substantially from 2015.
The direct-backlighting approach captured more than 60% of the market in 2014, according to TrendForce. Fundamental considerations strongly suggest that the penetration of direct backlighting will continue to grow, according to Nutmeg Consultants.
The movement toward direct backlighting and QDEF is illustrated by two press releases distributed by Nanosys in the last few days.
TCL had one of the more impressive booths at IFA 2015. Their QLED2.0 TV demo, with QDEF technology from Nanosys and 3M, featured new DolbyVision content that was specially mastered to take advantage of all the extra color and brightness enabled by Quantum Dots.
Hisense, China's leading electronics brand and the world's 4th largest TV maker, launched an exciting new ULED TV in New York City today. The ground-breaking new 65" Class H10B features Quantum Dot Enhancement Film technology from Nanosys and 3M for a richer, more vivid and true-to-life picture.
IFA 2015 kicks-off this Friday in Berlin and the biggest consumer electronics companies in the world are already busy promoting their big announcements for the upcoming holiday season. If you are not familiar with IFA, it’s a bit like the CES of Europe- a massive, weeklong show where all the biggest brands in the world show-off their latest gadgets- except bigger and longer standing (IFA was founded in the 1920’s to exhibit the hottest radios of the day).
Quantum Dots are sure to be one of the hottest TV technologies at IFA 2015. Here's your guide to the action...
Today, 3M, Nanosys and AUO announced that AUO will commercialize quantum dot TV with 3M and Nanosys’ QDEF by end of this year. The impact of this news is dramatic, since AUO is a panel supplier, they could sell the QD TV panel to any TV brands. This will accelerate the QD TV’s penetration...
Short for Ultra LED, ULED claims to combine wide colour gamut and High Dynamic Range-friendly high brightness technologies within a relatively traditional LED panel environment. The ULED sets employ Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) technology from 3M to deliver on their colour promises, as well as proprietary Smart Peaking technology that supposedly boosts the TVs’ black-to-black response time as well as making the brightest parts of the image look brighter...
The curved 65H10 4K ULED TV uses quantum-dot technology from Nanosys, embedded in a special Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) from 3M.
Quantum dots also help to avert a common problem with LED-LCD TVs, where reds and greens tend to look washed out when viewed up close. In fact, the harder quantum dots are driven the brighter they get, without loss of saturation....
First of all, we need to mention the quantum dot technology on the Zenbook’s display. This is an extremely unique feature on a laptop and even most 4K TVs don’t include this kind of drastic color augmenting innovation in their screens. This key trait of the Zenbook means the delivery of some excellent, rich dark tones and a more diverse than normal colore coverage with excellent accuracy and vibrancy. In fact, during testing, the Zenbook has delivered 100% sRGB color coverage and even manages 96% AdobeRGB coverage –stats that put it on par with some very high shelf professional 4K monitors for desktop PCs. This is an impressive achievement for a “mere” laptop to reach.
