Coverage from Samsung's SUHD Quantum Dot TV Launch Event
There have been a number of great stories published around the web about the exciting launch of Samsung's latest SUHD Quantum Dot TVs this week in NYC.
We've pulled together some of our favorite coverage here. Look for the Nanosys logo and Quantum Dot demonstration in many of the photos :)
Samsung's flagship KS98-- is bold, beautiful and wicked smart.... Like Samsung’s entire premium SUHD lineup, the KS9800 uses quantum dots to achieve extremely bright, highly accurate colors, and more shades of those colors than ever before. – Caleb Denison, Digital Trends
And here's where the magic happens - two jars with indium phosphide quantum dots suspended in fluid to produce those brilliant reds and greens... The KS9800 will make you forget you ever lusted for a Pioneer Elite plasma TV. – Pete Putnam, HDTV Magazine
Samsung's Quantum Dot displays deliver better brightness and color, according to the company, and come within 4 percent of covering all of the DCI-P3 color space used in today's best HDR (high dynamic range) content...But the biggest differentiator is brightness. Samsung is claiming a "1,000 nit" number for all of these sets. That's very bright. The spec is aimed directly at OLED TVs, which are about half as bright. – David Katzmaier, CNET
You can imagine rival brands pulling their hair out at the thought of having to go up against so many such highly specified Samsung TVs – especially when you think how these sort of specifications are likely to help the Samsung sets deliver extra eye-catching impact on crowded shop shelves. – Johnny Archer, Forbes
Samsung's TVs use what's called Quantum Dot technology to produce colors. Tiny particles that are between 2 and 8 nanometers in size produce white light that has stronger peaks at the blue, green, and red spectrums, which allow the sets to produce not only clearer and brighter colors, but do so more efficiently than other types of panels. – Mike Prospero, Tom's Guide
