Philips Introduces Quantum Dot TV with Color IQ™ Technology from QD Vision

National Nanomanufacturing Network - July 2, 2015 - 10:06am
Jenna Beaucage, QD VisionPhilips has expanded its portfolio of quantum dot displays with the launch of a 55” 4K TV with QD Vision Color IQ™ optics. The superior color performance of Color IQ quantum dots, combined with Philips Ambilight technology, delivers premium picture quality and a truly immersive TV experience. QD Vision leads the industry with the largest number of manufacturers adopting its quantum dot solution for LCD displays. Philips now offers a suite of quantum dot products to consumers using QD Vision’s Color IQ technology, including high-performance 27” LCD monitors. Color IQ optics produce natural, finely-tuned colors that enable better color saturation and color rendering than other technologies. QD Vision’s quantum dots allow displays to reach full-gamut 100% NTSC color performance at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. “Giving consumers an unmatched TV viewing experience is our mission, and QD Vision helps us deliver on that promise with breathtaking, life-like colors and extremely delicate picture effects,” said Tommy Li, Marketing Manager, Philips. “Quantum dots are enabling us to differentiate our suite of LCD displays, and we look forward to continued innovation with QD Vision.” “Philips’ expanded use of our Color IQ technology demonstrates the demand for high-performing, energy efficient and cost-effective quantum dots,” said Matt Mazzuchi, Vice President of Market & Business Development, QD Vision. “We’re proud to see TVs with Color IQ optics flooding the Chinese market, and applaud Philips’ leadership in adopting advanced display technology for multiple product lines.” The new Philips quantum dot TV, Model 55PUF6850/T3, is a Smart TV with 4K resolution and proprietary Ambilight technology. It is available now online at www.jd.com and will be sold in retail stores in China starting next month. About QD Vision, Inc.QD Vision, Inc. is a leader in quantum dot display technology for QLED displays. Quantum dot technology is a superior next-generation alternative to OLED displays, providing unparalleled color representation at a highly competitive LCD cost structure.
