Nanosys Technology Enables UHD Alliance Premium Devices to Deliver a Full Ultra High Definition Viewing Experience

Look for the UHD Alliance ULTRA HD PREMIUM logo on TVs Featuring Nanosys Quantum Dots at CES 2016 and Throughout the Year

Las Vegas, NV – January 5, 2016 – Nanosys Quantum Dot technology, the leading HDR display technology on the market today, will be featured in UHD Alliance (UHDA) ULTRA HD PREMIUM certified devices from top consumer electronics brands at CES 2016. Nanosys Quantum Dot technology makes High Dynamic Range (HDR) more dynamic by enabling TVs to reproduce pure colors with lifelike brightness using cutting-edge nano-crystal technology.

“The UHD Alliance has set a very high bar for performance across the entire ecosystem from content creation to distribution and display devices,” said Jason Hartlove, CEO of Nanosys. “It’s exciting for Nanosys because the stage is now set for mainstream adoption of our Quantum Dot technology, which is enabling a new generation of displays to deliver an in-home experience that finally matches the full color palette used by Hollywood.”

The UHDA’s new ULTRA HD PREMIUM logo helps consumers identify products and services that deliver a full-featured Ultra High Definition in-home experience. Products and services with this new logo must comply with a range of consumer-tested performance metrics for resolution, high dynamic range, peak luminance, and wide color gamut among others. Nanosys proprietary Quantum Dot display technology is a key enabling technology behind each of these exciting new features– no other display technology is able to deliver as much color, brightness and power efficiency.

TVs that feature Nanosys technology contain a thin film loaded with trillions of nano-crystals called Quantum Dots. These tiny nano-crystals, which are 10,000 times narrower than a human hair, can reproduce any color in the visible spectrum with unmatched brightness and purity. The result is a lifelike image that allows home viewers to experience the content creator’s original intent.

Nanosys technology will be on display in the Nanosys booth at CES, Suite 1760, Westgate Hotel and at several leading consumer electronics brands on the show floor.
