LG is due to unveil a new line of 4K, Ultra HD TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, featuring “quantum dot technology.”
LG said the quantum dot 4K TVs will offer a wider colour palette and improved colour saturation than conventional LCD TVs and will be available next year as part of its expanded TV lineup.
The company claims that its quantum dot technology displays a wide colour gamut by using “nano crystals” that range in size from two to 10 nanometers.
“Each dot emits a different colour depending on its size. By adding a film of quantum dots in front of the LCD backlight, picture colour reproduction rate and overall brightness are significantly improved,” said LG.
In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company added: “The addition of Ultra HD TV with quantum dot technology to our TV lineup, positioned under our award-winning OLED TVs, further establishes LG as a leading provider of the most diverse and innovative TV display technologies in the industry.”
