The company will reveal a new display that uses quantum dots at the upcoming electronics show.
LG has announced that it will be demoing a brand new 4K TV at CES in Las Vegas this January. Unlike traditional LCD panels, this new display will integrate quantum dot technology, providing a wider color palette and improved saturation.
"Quantum dot's vibrant and vivid color reproduction capabilities brings 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."
Quantum dots work by using nano crystals that emit different colors depending on their size. When the dots are placed on a film over an LCD backlight, they allow the panel to produce higher brightness and better colors. Coupled with LG's IPS LCD panel tech, the quantum dots increase the TV's color reproduction rate by more than 30 percent compared to traditional LCD displays.
LG's Ultra HD TVs with quantum dot technology will be on display at the company's booth at CES in Las Vegas from January 6-9. The new TVs are scheduled to start shipping sometime in 2015. Meanwhile, rival electronics manufacturer, Samsung, is also expected to show off quantum dot TVs at CES.
