The July/August 2019 edition of InformationDisplay magazine has a great write-up on some of the best, most interesting demonstrations from the annual SID DisplayWeek show. It’s great to see the Hisense-Nanosys Dual-Cell Quantum Dot LCD demo featured here. This was an impressive demo at the show and we look forward to seeing the technology in consumers’ hands soon.
Ken Werner, writing for InformationDisplay magazine:
“Out on the showroom floor, dual‐cell LCD TV panels were on display in the booths of several panel makers. In the dual‐cell architecture, a monochrome LCD panel is placed behind the normal color LCD panel. The point of the monochrome LCD is to modulate the backlight and create a very large number (typically 5,000) of dimming zones and a very high contrast ratio. 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 Hisense TV that uses a dual‐cell panel and Nanosys quantum dots. The set looked startlingly good, as did the dual‐cell panels shown by BOE and China Star Optoelectronics Technology. Hisense has told Jeff Yurek of Nanosys that this set will be available for sale in 2020.”
