Insight Media Releases Technical White Paper on Quantum Dot Technology

 White paper details how quantum dot technology expands TV’s color range and enhances HDR

NORWALK, Conn. - Tuesday, November 15th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Insight Media announced today the release of a new white paper that delves into the science behind quantum dot technology as it pertains to displays. Insight Media’s Chris Chinnock authored the white paper, Quantum Dots will Power Display Products to the Next Level, which details a range of topics from wide color gamut options, High Dynamic Range (HDR) to the intricacies of quantum dot technology.

The white paper provides an overview of three technologies typically utilized to create a wide color gamut (WCG) display: OLED, LCD and quantum dot.

In the case of OLED TV, for example, although it can produce most of the full DCI-P3 color gamut at low luminance levels, the limitations in the peak emission and brightness affect the color rendering capacities of the display. This causes images to look washed out and at high luminance levels and decrease of the color volume. The implementation of micro-cavity structures in OLED displays allows more saturated colors and a wider color gamut. The trade-off with this structure is a narrowing of the viewing angles of the display.

The 27-page white paper takes a deep dive into the technology behind each display type and calls out their unique strengths and weaknesses.

Topics covered by the white paper include: (alternative is to use actual TOC image below)

    Wide Color Gamut Options
        OLED Displays
            Emitting Structure
            Micro-Cavity Structure
            Pixel Architecture
        LCD Displays
            Display Architecture
            Dimming Options
            WCG by Phosphor-Enhanced LEDs
            WCG by Adjusting Color Filtering
        Quantum Dot Displays
            Quantum Dot Technology
            Quantum Dot Film
            Quantum Dot Tube
            On-chip LED Devices with Quantum Dots
            Electrically Driven Quantum Dots

“Quantum dots are amazing materials with potential we are just beginning to explore,” noted Chris Chinnock, president and founder of Insight Media. “This white paper profiles the great opportunity that quantum dots offer in displays, especially as displays stretch their color capabilities to achieve the wide BT.2020 color gamut. But they can also be used in other applications ranging from solar cells, to lighting and bioimaging, so this is clearly a technology to be tracking.”

Quantum dot technology is now fueling a range of LCD displays, offering a WCG that can be larger than that offered by OLED displays and other LCD technologies. When coupled with HDR, quantum dot displays offer some of the best picture performance on the market.
