I tend to trust industry news sources more, like eetimes even, or people who reference them, or have insider knowledge.
Emissive had very poor results, so I wonder how much life the first emissive will have 1000nit+ HDR use, even SDR, and if bigger sizes are needed. So, this leaves a spot for QD coated Leds to service more demanding applications, even before hand.
Now, which is which they are talking about. Printed OLED is suppose to revolutionise the industry, but still has not. So, still likely more expensive than LCD, but cheaper than microled, but with HDR limitation which still puts ahead of a Q7. So, I expect that LCD will continue until poled costs come down. But, that means a Q7 like screen could become the low end. Very exciting, with lesser screens maybe abandoned (maybe hotel). They have LCD factory capacity, which most likely has to be used somewhere until it is converted over. So LCD might continue, and even n a lesser NU like product which can go to commercial channel (nu8000 and Q6, good for hotel/motel market, say). So yes, maybe we will see QD on OLED latter this year, at least demo, as everything lines up for some of these scenarios.
In the computer professional industry, we need yesterday what can be done, even just to produce content that tomorrow's consumer sets can take advantage of. The consumer industry has been royally screwing us over, from standards, to HDMI, to bluray dictating and holding back technology to drip feed at great prices in underwhelming consumer tech. We need these things years before hand to have a collection of content ready for when the consumer versions are released. So, 8k cameras are like 5-10 years behind, 8k displays over 10 years, forcing us to work on paltry pricey fullhd tiny displays when 8k was ready. It all stagnated when the computer services product industry lined up with fullhd. Even Apple, who were big enough to make what resolution they wanted, barely got to 5k. Forcing people to buy $50k like Dolby monitors to just grade next generation to a reasonable level, instead of $5k. But this goes on, there were so many industries which could have used better. But, this is really something to investigate for anti-trust issues, if they had allowed free standards to the highest the spec could do for work products, sure a big big monitor might cost $50k to begin with, but it means the 4k version would be much less, and the consumer fullhd and 720p version less again, over 12 years ago. By the time the 8k+ big version comes down to $10k, the fullhd and 4k consumer versions would gave to start charging realistic prices by 8-10 years ago, and 8k might have been $2k this year. The professional industry, and that means all of society they serve, has suffered more than the extra profit the consumer industry has made in order for them to be richer. It's already insane and damaging. The computer industry definitely were big enough enough to set the pace if unfettered and technology production and standards were not dictated by others.
