SHANGHAI, China – April 7, 2016 – Philips, one of the world’s leading monitor brands, today announced that its new quantum dot-based monitors are now available in China. The new monitors utilize Color IQ technology from QD Vision, a global leader in quantum dot technology, to deliver the most vivid color viewing experience commercially available today. The new Philips monitors enable 50 percent better color performance than a typical LCD monitor.

In 2015, Philips launched the first 27-inch quantum dot monitor globally. The new monitors extends to 31.5-inch and offers 98 percent Adobe RGB color. Meanwhile, the ultra-thin frame halves at merely 8.6mm. The Philips new quantum dot monitor are now available online and at Philips retailers.

“Philips continues to be a leader in bringing the latest product innovation and technology to the display market,” said Sapling Chen, Global Product Director Philips Monitors. “We are proud to partner with QD Vision to integrate quantum dot technology into the new Philips quantum dots monitors, which raises the bar for delivering the widest color gamut displays available today.”

QD Vision’s Color IQ solution utilizes semiconductor nanocrystals called quantum dots to precisely and efficiently convert light emissions and create virtually any color of the visible spectrum. Color IQ Optics deliver wider color gamut than any other commercial technology, including OLED, but at a much lower overall cost.

Today, most mainstream models are limited to illustrating, at most, 70 percent of the Adobe spectrum. Using QD Vision’s Color IQ solution, Philips quantum dot displays delivers 98 percent of the full Adobe RGB spectrum, resulting in remarkably crisp images with vivid, life-like colors, making them ideally suited for binge-watching television shows, online gaming, personal photography or other activities that would benefit from the highest degree of color accuracy and brightness consistency.

“Using Color IQ quantum dots, Philips is bringing a professional quality, wide color gamut experience to mainstream monitor users,” said John Volkmann, chief marketing officer at QD Vision. “These new, more lifelike monitors are perfect for anyone doing amateur photography, watching movies, playing game or even just buying clothes online.”

The PLS/PLS-ADS wide view angle panel offers perfect image performance and real color uniformity at an extremely large viewing angle of 178°. Flicker-free technology provides critical eye support for those who are used to long-time PC viewing, providing a more comfortable experience that promotes greater eye health. The Philips new quantum dots monitors also feature 1920 x 1080 resolution, ΔE<3 color deviation, 50 million:1 dynamic contrast and support for multiple I/O ports including VGA, DVI-D, HDMI and an audio line output. The series is compatible with Blu-ray players and most gaming consoles, including PS3/PS4 and Xbox 360.
