USA Today on Quantum Dot TV Technology

USA Today talks up Quantum Dot display technology in their review of Hisense's cutting edge H10 TV:

"Quantum dot (or nanocrystal) is a relatively new technology that can intensify the colors produced by LED TVs. It's a feature that's been adopted by just about every major TV manufacturer, and it should roll out everywhere later this year."

The new set features Quantum Dot technology from Nanosys and will be available in the US this year for $2799.

Forbes: Apple Paving The Way To 'Revolutionary' iPhone Display with Quantum Dots

Display experts, Displaymate, say QDs will revolutionize LCD displays over the next five years, bringing them on a par with the OLED screens favored by Apple’s main competitor.

Quantum Dot is an enhancement film layer that improves the color performance of LCD screens, like the Retina. It can also be used to enhance the color performance of TVs. Quantum Dot technology has the advantage of being able to work with existing display production lines – it’s a drop-in technology with no significant capital investment required.

What’s doubly interesting is that there are already  quantum dot technologies on the market. I wrote back in the summer that inventors Nanosys and fabricator 3M were ready to roll with quantum dot enhancement film (QDEF).

CNET: Apple needs to catch Samsung, Amazon in displays, Quantum Dots the key innovation

"Apple has recently given up the lead in displays -- now Amazon, Google, LG, and Samsung are launching products with the best and most innovative displays."

He cited the example of an emerging LCD technology called Quantum Dots that Amazon has tapped for the Kindle Fire HDX 7 (now $199 at Amazon).

"Quantum Dots are going to revolutionize and reenergize LCDs for the next 5+ years," he wrote. "While they have been under development for many years, in 2013 they made it out of the labs and into consumer products: in some models of Sony Bravia TVs...and in the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7, with Quantum Dots from Nanosys," he said.

Quantum Dot displays produce highly saturated primary colors that are similar to those produced by OLED displays, according to Soneira.

Nanosys expands U.S. manufacturing as demand for colorful, efficient quantum dot displays heats up

Milpitas, Calif., April 2, 2013 – Nanosys, enabling a new generation of high color fidelity, energy-efficient displays with its quantum-dot technology, today announced that it has expanded into a new, high-capacity production facility in Milpitas, California.

Nanosys’ new 60,000 square foot facility will produce over 1,000 kilograms of quantum dots per year- enough material to build more than five million 55” quantum dot televisions. As part of the expansion Nanosys expects to create more than 50 next-generation manufacturing jobs in the South Bay.
