Philips And AOC Monitors Use QD Vision's Quantum Dots

Philips and AOC have adopted QD Vision's Color IQ quantum dot technology for their new 27in high-performance LCD monitors. 

The Philips and AOC monitors will be launched in China and available in the US in the second quarter of 2015. According to QD Vision, the monitors achieve 99 percent Adobe RGB colour at an aggressive price point.

"The colour we achieved on the new Philips 27in - (276E6A) monitors is truly groundbreaking, and represents a superior value for our customers," said Chris Brown, global product marketing (MMD/Philips monitors). "This is a premium product without the premium price tag."

"For the AOC 27in (I2771F9), Color IQ quantum dot technology provides a significant price performance advantage compared to other wide-gamut colour technologies, with colour that is equal to - or better than - comparable alternatives," said Sapling Chen, global product planning (AOC Monitors).

Matt Mazzuchi, VP market and business development at QD Vision said: "Our Color IQ optics enable Philips and AOC to deliver what consumers have been asking for - a superior visual experience at a cost-effective price."

QDs are semiconductor nanocrystals that possess unique light emitting optical properties. The emission wavelength spectrum of QD light can be tuned to create almost any colour of the visible spectrum.

Founded in 2004, QD Vision has raised more than $75 million in financing from venture capital firms and is headquartered in Lexington, Massachusetts, USA.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
