LG to unveil new 4K ULTRA HD TV with quantum dot technology at CES 2015
LG will unveil a new 4K ULTRA HD TV with quantum dot technology as a new component of its expanded TV lineup at the 2015 International CES (Las Vegas from Jan. 6-9). LG’s quantum dot technology displays an extremely wide color gamut, making it ideal for 4K content. The technology works by harnessing nano crystals that range in size from 2 to 10 nanometers. Each dot emits a different color depending on its size. By adding a film of quantum dots in front of the LCD backlight, picture color reproduction rate and overall brightness are significantly improved.
Since the nano-sized dots emit extraordinarily vivid colors, quantum dot technology is able to enhance the already stunning capabilities of LG’s 4K ULTRA HD In-Plane Switching (IPS) displays. LG’s 4K ULTRA HD TVs with quantum dot technology will employ technology designed with the environment in mind as they contain no cadmium or any other toxic heavy metals. LG’s 4K ULTRA HD TVs with quantum dot technology will be available in 2015 to complement LG’s other ULTRA HD TV and OLED TV offerings. Visitors to LG’s booth at CES 2015 will have the opportunity to see LG’s stunning 4K ULTRA HD TVs with their own eyes.
