Philips & AOC will release quantum dot monitors

11 Jan 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Philips and AOC will release monitors with quantum dot technology in the second quarter of 2015, the companies said at CES 2015. Both companies will release a 27-inch monitor capable of reproducing 99% of Adobe RGB.

Quantum dot monitors are coming

There are still no OLED monitor announcements, but quantum dot technology is coming to monitors later this year. Quantum dot was a big theme at CES 2015 in display manufacturers’ quest for better colors.

Quantum dots are applied to the LED backlight in the LCD panel and can expand the color gamut by “exciting” the quantum dots.

The two 27-inch monitors will be called Philips 276E6A and AOC I2771F9, but besides that there are few details. The LCD monitors will use QD Vision’s quantum dot technology and will be able to achieve 99% of the Adobe RGB gamut that some non-quantum dot monitors can also achieve. However, Philips and AOC’s monitors will be considerably cheaper, according to the companies.

- “The color we achieved on the new Philips 27” – (276E6A) monitors is truly groundbreaking, and represents a superior value for our customers. This is a premium product without the premium price tag” said Chris Brown, Global Product Marketing TPV (MMD/Philips monitors).

- “For the AOC 27” (I2771F9),Color IQ quantum dot technology provides a significant price performance advantage compared to other wide-gamut color technologies, with color that is equal to – or better than – comparable alternatives,” said Sapling Chen, Global Product Planning, TPV (AOC Monitors).

Both monitors will launch in the second quarter of 2015. More details will be announced later.
