Digital Trends: HP's 65" Gaming Monitor with Quantum Dots is a "Visual Feast"

Luke Larsen, writing for Digital Trends on HP’s Omen X Big Format Gaming Monitor. The display, which was a collaboration with NVIDIA, features Quantum Dot technology for blazing speed, color and brightness.

“The HP Omen X Emperium 65 isn’t just a concept. The display goes on sale in February. Acer and Asus have similar 65-inch BFGDs of their own, though the Omen is the first you’ll be able to buy… You can thank the quantum dot technology used in the LCD for those amazing colors. It’s a visual feast all around.”

Samsung: "We believe quantum dot is the future of display technology”

“We believe quantum dot is the future of display technology,” said Joe Stinziano, executive vice president of the consumer business division at Samsung Electronics.

The newish competitor is quantum dot technology, which Samsung claims can generate visuals that rival OLED screens. Moreover, quantum dot material can enhance lower cost LCD display manufacturing lines with a few adjustments. OLEDs have traditionally been more challenging to make, which contributed to their slow arrival to production model televisions.

TCL Launches Multiple Quantum Dot TVs at CES with Nanosys Technology

The QUHD TV series, built on the fundamental innovation of backlight technology, has set a higher standard for next-generation TVs, bringing an end to disputes over what is actually the next-generation TV technology. QUHD TVs, by taking full advantage of the unique quantum technology, far exceed LED TVs in terms of display effects and also surpasses OLED TVs in terms of several key metrics, including definition and color purity.

The Register: Samsung slams door on OLED TVs, makes QUANTUM dot LEAP

Samsung has said that it intends to focus on UHD TVs using LCD panels augmented by quantum dot technology, instead of pushing OLED as a commercial replacement for LCD. This is the kind of decision that might mean that OLED nevertakes off in the larger form factors.

Kim Hyun-Seok, the head of Samsung’s TV business, told reporters that the firm doesn’t intend to change its OLED strategy this year or next – meaning that it will look to quantum dots to wring the life out of LCD instead of taking the plunge to OLED.

Samsung is planning on showcasing its new quantum dot tech at CES 2015.

DigitalTrends: Samsung Shelves OLED in favor of Quantum Dot display tech for next generation TVs

According to the CNET report, the company is fighting back by pouring R&D money into Quantum Dot televisions which, like OLEDs, are a self-emitting technology (they can generate their own light).

Quantum Dots are a difficult technology to understand, but their potential benefits are easier to wrap your head around. Think of Quantum Dots as ultra-tiny particles that will make their own light if electricity is applied to them, or if light is shone on them. That color is directly related to their size, and their color production is extremely stable. Presently, Quantum Dots are used to change the color of LEDs into other colors, eliminating the need for a color filter in an LCD planel, and producing more accurate, well-saturated colors, along with purer whites. Unfortunately, they still rely on LED backlights, which means displays using the technology must still be carefully engineered in order to offer other critical picture quality elements, such as deep black levels, and uniformly bright screens.

HDTV Expert on CES 2014: Red really looks like red when viewed with a Quantum Dot backlight

Red – perhaps the most difficult color to reproduce accurately in any flat-screen TV – really looks like red when viewed with a QD backlight. And it’s possible to show many subtle shades of red with this technology.

All you need is a QD film or emitter with arrays of red and green dots, plus a backlight made up of blue LEDs. The blue passes through, while the blue photons “tickle” the red and green dots, causing them to emit their respective colors. It’s also possible to build a direct-illumination display out of quantum dots that would rival OLED TVs.
