DisplayDaily: Nanosys Shows Hisense Dual-Cell QD TV at Display Week; Coming to Market in 2020

Ken Werner, writing for DisplayDaily, on Nanosys demo of the Hisense ULED XD at DisplayWeek 2019

“Dual-cell LCD TV Panels were on display in the Display Week booths of several panel makers… The technology can produce OLED-like performance at low and medium luminance, and LCD-like performance at high luminance. The initial concerns have been cost and power consumption.

In its booth, Nanosys showed a prototype of the Hisense ULED XD TV using a dual-cell panel and Nanosys quantum dots. The set looked startlingly good, as did the dual-cell panels showed by BOE and CSOT. But this was a full-up TV set, not just a panel, and Hisense has told Jeff Yurek of Nanosys that the set will be available for sale in 2020.”

DisplayDaily: SID Review

Bob Raikes, writing for DisplayDaily on Nanosys SID DisplayWeek presence:

“…a demonstration by Nanosys of its electrically emissive QDs which are now available in a range of colours and it planned to give a paper on this topic with its development partner. It was the identity of this partner that was the surprise - it's LG Display. Of course, the promise of QDs is compelling. The materials might replace OLED materials, but with better colour, higher brightness and longer lifetime, without burning. The paper was still to be presented when I wrote this, but we'll come back to this topic, without doubt.”

Electroluminescent Quantum Dots are Coming Sooner Than You Think

Scott Wilkinson, writing for AVS Forum on the QDEL paper Nanosys and LG Display co-authored for SID DisplayWeek:

“Quantum dots are the hottest thing to hit display technology in a very long time. These nano-scale particles emit light at very specific wavelengths in response to various stimuli. They can be used in several ways within video-display devices, some of which are now available to consumers, while other applications are still under development…

Among the companies at the forefront of this effort is Nanosys. Its photoluminescent quantum dots (PL QDs) are used in LCD TVs from Hisense, JVC, Philips, Samsung, TCL, and Vizio as well as computer monitors from Acer, ASUS, HP, and Philips. But the company knows that EL QDs are the ultimate future of QD-based displays.

In collaboration with LG Display—LG’s panel-manufacturing and R&D subsidiary, not to be confused with LG Electronics, which markets finished TVs—Nanosys will present a major paper on the subject of EL QDs at DisplayWeek 2019, the annual confab of SID (Society for Information Display).”
