LG Electronics has confirmed that a new 4K ULTRA HD TV with quantum dot technology as a new component of its expanded TV line-up will be launched at the 2015 International CES, which will be held from 6-9 January in Las Vegas.
According to LG, this new 4K TV will offer a wider colour palette and improved colour saturation compared to the conventional LCD TVs and will be available in 2015 to complement LG's other ULTRA HD TV and OLED TV offerings.
LG explained in a press release that the new quantum dot technology will display an extremely wide colour gamut making the display ideal for 4K contents.
The technology works by harnessing nano crystals range in sizes across 2 to 10 nanometres. Each dot emits a separate 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 will be improved significantly.
Since the nano-sized dots emit extraordinarily vivid colours, quantum dot technology will be able to enhance the capabilities of LG's 4K ULTRA HD IPS displays. LG claims the colour reproduction rate in LG's IPS panels will also be increased with the addition of the quantum dot film by more than 30% compared to conventional LCD/LED TVs.
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.
"Quantum dot's vibrant and vivid color reproduction capabilities bring LG's LCD TVs to the next level when it comes to picture quality," said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "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."
Visitors at LG's booth at CES 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from will have the opportunity to see LG's stunning 4K ULTRA HD TVs with their own eyes.
