QD Vision to tackle Rec.2020 capable LED TV manufacturing
Joint venture could open up millions more available colours
QD Vision, a pioneer of Quantum Dot technology in TVs, has announced a new joint development agreement with BASF Group for a quantum dot-enhanced backlight and a colour filter for use in LCD displays.
The two companies will target growing demand for wide colour gamut technologies, particularly those focused on achieving the Rec. 2020 colour standard. Wide colour gamut technology will enable displays to show millions more colours than today’s UHD or 4K displays can.
“This latest infusion of capital signals investor confidence in QD Vision and the strong growth potential of the quantum dot market,” said Mustafa Ozgen, CEO of QD Vision. “We have established solid industry leadership in colour performance, low energy use, environmental safety, and affordability of our Color IQ technology. We look forward to working with our new partners to continue to extend our quantum dot market penetration into the fullest range of hardware and content platforms.”
“QD Vision’s products allow an unmatched LCD viewing experience with significantly lower energy consumption. We expect that the innovation will find widespread application in next generation LCD devices,” said Dirk Nachtigal, Managing Director at BASF Venture Capital.
This probably isn’t a sign a TV fulfilling all of the Rec. 2020 colour gamut, but it definitely gives an indication the manufacturers are at least tackling some of the issues in delivering performance closer to it in the future.
