Nanoco Group announces color film

Nanoco Group plc, of Concord, announced the next generation of its NANOCO CFQD FINE COLOR FILM. This new film builds upon Nanoco’s market leading quantum dot development, delivering brightness (up to 5-10 percent more) and performance, sustainably powering the fast-growing high-end TV display and media-centric monitor markets as the industry progresses on the roadmap to DCI-P3 and BT.2020 standards and away from cadmium-based solutions. The company will be exhibiting its next generation NANOCO CFQD FINE COLOR FILM at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Jan. 9-12. Quantum dots continue to disrupt the high-end display market, thanks to their ability to produce more beautiful, vibrant color than traditional LCDs, their fast response time, their high energy efficiency and their cost competitiveness compared to OLED technologies. Quantum dots are increasingly applied to monitors to deliver DCI wide color gamut, color accuracy across a high dynamic range, artifact free high frame rate motion and low black levels made possible with local dimming BLUs. These characteristics are all required for the upcoming generation of media-centric monitors used for gaming, video streaming, video production, online shopping and other consumer applications. Only NANOCO CFQD FINE COLOR FILM can meet consumer demand for wide color gamut in the next generation of highest quality LCD products as the market continues to demonstrate its preference for sustainable quantum dot solutions.
