QD Tech May Be Key To Ultra HD Success

A new technology known as quantum dots brings within reach affordable, mass market production of 4K Ultra HD television sets that display purer colors and brighter pixels. But QD technology isn’t just for consumers. Dolby Labs has introduced a 32-inch Dolby Vision reference monitor using QD and it looks like the technology could be well-suited to the needs of broadcasters for reference and production monitors in the future. Shown above is a Samsung 88-inch JS-9500 QD set on display at the 2015 CES.
