Wired: The Colorful Science of Why Fireworks Look Bad on TV

Author Adam Rogers recently wrote up a great piece for Wired on why today’s TV struggle to reproduce the super saturated, colorful experience of a fireworks show. It turns out that even the massive BT.2020 color gamut, which covers 75% of the colors the human eye can detect, is not quite large enough to reproduce the vivid colors of a fireworks show.

Wired: Samsung's New Quantum Dots Serve Up Some Tasty Colors

Tim Moynihan, writing for Wired on the just-launched 2017 Samsung QLED TVs which feature Quantum Dot technology licensed from Nanosys:

“The fact that [Quantum Dots are] brighter, more powerful, and much more focused allows you to add more layers without impacting the color volume or off-angle viewing,” says Louis Masses, director of communications at Samsung. “Normally, if you put another layer on the panel, it dims everything. You lose color, you lose brightness. But here, the brightness and the efficiency allows you to put on a layer that helps improve black levels.”

Wired on Hisense latest Quantum Dot TV: "70" of HDR Madness"

Tim Moynihan at Wired just took an early look at the latest HDR TV from Hisense, the H10, calling it "a great TV for not a lot of money." The set features Quantum Dot technology from Nanosys, a huge number of dimming zones and HDR10 make it a bargain relative to other, similarly feature-rich TVs:

The flagship 70-inch H10 is a flat-screen (as in, not curved) 4K HDR set. The H10 boasts quantum-dot color enhancement and a full-array backlight system that ramps up to 1,000 nits of luminance. The 320 zones of local dimming (that’s a lot) keep contrast sharp.
