Quantum dot enhanced backlight light in LCD TV takes it to the next level with an even wider range of colors and luminance.

Quantum dot display technology products provide better color purity, wider color gamut, brighter more immersive HDR experience, while maintaining power efficiency. But it still has many challenges such as higher prices, environmental concern about cadmium-based products and performance level of some non-cadmium products. There are many suppliers working on this technology. Nanosys and Hansol are the major volume quantum dot material manufacturers in 2017.
