Dec 28, 2016: As we have reported earlier that at CES 2017, all eyes will be on the two giant TV makers—Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics—and the TV technologies they would push forward. Both this brands will vie for leadership at the TV technology domain.
While Samsung would advocate quantum dot (QD) technology for its TVs at CES 2017, LG would offer OLED TVs.
Samsung is also trying to form a quantum dot (QD) TV alliance to counter OLED TV makers like LG, Panasonic, Philips, and Germany’s Grundig and Lowere, who intend t0 lead the TV market with thinner OLED TVs.
At CES 2017, Samsung will launch quantum dot-based LED (QLED) TV with better picture quality. Samsung is keen to share its technology with other TV manufactures who want to make quantum dot TVs after the CES show.
In 2016, Samsung had said that it would invest to scale up QD technology, and in Nov 2016, the company had acquired QD Vision, the US-based provider of quantum dot technology for consumer displays. Jung Chil-hee, the head of Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology, has confirmed the deal ahead of its official announcement.
