These appear to be Quantum Dots on film for LCD displays rather than true Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes (QLEDs). Per the list of Quantum Dot Displays
, only QD visions's dots are available commercially in Sony's displays so far. Hopefully more vendors will bring prices down and get them in more displays as the Quantum Dot Color Gamut
is fairly large. While they fall short of Rec 2020, hopefully in the near future they will at least be able to hit 100% of Adobe RGB and DCI P3.
There seem to be a range of new 'wide color gamut' LED/LCDs hitting the market this year. Beyond the Sony 950B, there is the Vizio Reference Series, the Toshiba Radiance L9400U, and probably others including the Panasonic AX800.
In addition, there have been announcements from panel manufacturers AUO and Innolux regarding the availability and supply of WCG LED/LCD panels in 2014:
Is it known if QD Vision is the quantum dot supplier being used by AUO and Innolux or is it one of their competitors (assuming the WCG panels are being implemented through the use of quantum dots)?
It seems like the technology Sony pioneered in 2013 (at least in terms of the end result of WCG LED/LCD display) has gained major momentum in 2014 and I would appreciate any insight anyone has into the technologies and vendors behind this trend...
Is it known what technology these panel manufacturers are using for WCG LED/LCD panels? Is it quantum dots and if so embedded in film like the Sony 2013 'Triluminous' display technology or through another mechanism such as a coating directly on the LEDs?
