4K.com: How Electro Quantum Dots Might Crush OLED In 4K TVs & Other Devices

Stephan Jukic from 4K.com talks about how Nanosys Electro Luminescent Quantum Dots has to potential to crush OLED TVs and other devices.

"Nanosys calls this technology Electro Luminescent Quantum Dot display (ELQD) and it believes that their development will completely disrupt the current television display industry, in which OLED dominates as far as sheer advancement goes.

These new ELQD displays will in fact work a bit like OLED screens in that they won’t require a backlight of any kind but they’ll create a further advantage due to their superior color palette creation ability –to a degree even higher than that achievable by OLED. At the same time, because each QD subpixel inside such screens will be capable of individual activation/deactivation, ELQD screens will deliver the same perfect blacks, pixel-perfect local dimming and wide viewing angles as those achieved by OLED screens today. Another benefit of such pixel luminance efficiency would be lower overall power consumption, since relatively inefficient, broadly luminous LED backlights can (literally) be removed from the picture.

Electro Optics: Quantum Dots Enabling A New Era of Color

As display resolution reaches a point of diminishing returns display makers are turning their focus to wide color gamut and pixel quality as the next step for display development. Matthew Dale of ElectoOptics recently spoke with analyst Eric Virey of Yole Developpment and Nanosys' Jeff Yurek for an update on next generation materials technologies that are enabling a new era in color for displays:

"‘Quantum dots are able to achieve higher peak brightness, lower energy consumption, slightly wider colour gamut and better colour volume [than OLEDs] – the ability to render all the colours perfectly at any level of brightness,’ Virey explained.

This competitive performance, combined with minimal capital investment, an ease of implementation and an upcoming period of constrained manufacturing for OLED televisions, could lead to a dramatic increase in uptake of quantum dot LCD (QLCD/QLED) televisions worldwide in the near future. Yole expects quantum dot televisions to capture the lion’s share of the WCG market over the next five years."

Nanosys Vice President Russell Kempt to present on innovations in next-generation Quantum Dot display technology at The Economist’s 2017 Future of Materials Summit

Milpitas, Calif., November 7, 2017 – Nanosys, the Quantum Dot company, today announced Russell Kempt, Nanosys Vice President, will be a featured speaker at The Economist’s Future Materials Summit in Luxembourg, November 14, 2017.

Mr. Kempt will join the “Consumer Goods” panel on Tuesday, November 14 at 2:00-3:00 PM CET to provide an update on how Nanosys Quantum Dots, the colorful light-emitting nanocrystals inside popular QLED televisions, are enabling new low-cost printing techniques that will make tomorrow’s ultra-thin, flexible displays possible.

Forbes: QLED Not OLED Is The Future Of TV Technology

Forbes contributor John Archer breaks down the numbers behind the current TV Tech War with help from veteran display analyst Ross Young

"Delving deeper into some of the reasons why DSCC sees OLED struggling so much over the next few years, the report states that OLED TV production techniques are lagging significantly behind QLED ones. QLED lines running to the so-called 10.5G specification are estimated to be as much as two years ahead of 10.5G OLED lines - a big deal when you consider that 10.5G lines are optimized for production of the 65-inch and 75-inch screens expected to become an increasingly key part of the TV market in the next few years."

What Does the Future of TV Tech Look Like?

The annual CE Week TV Shootout is right around the corner. As a preview to that event Rob Scott at Dealerscope met up with display calibration expert Kevin Miller to talk TV tech trends. Quantum dots were part of the conversation of course:

"As far as a new innovative display technology is concerned, the next big development in LCD display technology is Photo Emissive LCD using Quantum Dots. The Blue backlight shines through the LCD panels to stimulate Red and Green Quantum Dots that then create the Red, Green, and Blue light, which eliminates color filters, and should improve off angle viewing, and dramatically increase energy efficiency... There is one very interesting display technology that companies like Nanosys are working on called Electro luminescent (Electro Emissive), which has great potential, because it will eliminate the LCD panels."

Nanosys Details the Future of Quantum Dots

Chris Chinnock, founder and president of Insight Media, talks about the advancement of Nanosys Quantum Dots in the upcoming years.

"Alternatively, one can consider an ink printing process that is additive and more appropriate for direct-view displays.  The key question here is can you define sub-pixel structures that meet the performance and manufacturing requirements?  Here again, Nanosys, working with partners, claims to be solving this problem.  In their back room, they showed images of 180 x 580 micron printed color filters with embedded quantum dots and a 5 micron thickness that is now very close to meeting manufacturer requirements."
