Technologist Robert Heron and Patrick Norton from one of our favorite AV podcasts, AVexcel, stopped by our headquarters last week for an interview with Jeff Yurek, Nanosys Director of Marketing on the current state of Quantum Dots and where the technology is heading next.Read More
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."Read More
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."Read More
At CES, Nanosys announced 25 new products across a host of brands...
Meanwhile, the company also discussed next generation quantum dot solutions, and even demonstrated a forthcoming quantum dot color filter replacement technology for the first time. Nanosys calls this color-filter approach “Photo-Emissive” quantum dots, and it’s poised to revolutionize future generations of LED LCD TVs by allowing existing quantum dot tech “to effectively double the efficiency of an LCD, bringing better benefits to not only LED LCD TVs but to OLED, WOLED or microLED displays as well.Read More
One of the most interesting meetings I had at CES this year was an update from Nanosys on the future of quantum dots in video displays... At CES, Nanosys—which supplies or licenses QD technology to most of the major TV manufacturers—demonstrated the next step in the application of QDs to displays.Read More
Interview with Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove at CES 2017, who explained the differences between photo-enhanced, photo-emissive and electro-emissive quantum dot TVs.Read More
