27″ Monitor Achieves 99% Adobe RGB Color Using Color IQ™ Technology
BERLIN, September 2, 2015 – MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors and QD Vision have joined forces to bring the world’s first quantum dot desktop monitor to Europe. The Philips 27″ Full HD monitor (276E6ADS) delivers 99% Adobe RGB color thanks to Color IQ™ technology from QD Vision. Philips monitors will showcase the quantum dot monitor at IFA, Hall 22 Booth 101.
“Quantum dot technology is changing the way monitor users think about color, and the new 27″ E Line monitor is the first on the market to showcase this new technology,” said Stefan Sommer, Director Marketing & Business Management EMEA at MMD “QD Vision is helping us create a monitor with 99% Adobe RGB color at a very aggressive price point, making it accessible to everyone who uses a monitor.”
Even at the highest price points, most of today’s monitors are only capable of displaying less than 95% of the Adobe RGB standard, with mainstream models typically only capable of presenting roughly 70% of the Adobe spectrum. Using QD Vision’s Color IQ solution, we can now produce monitors that deliver the full Adobe RGB standard (>99%), but at much lower overall costs.
The new E line monitor with Color IQ is ideal for entertainment and gaming, as well as professional photography and design. The 276E6ADS combines Color IQ optics with full HD resolution, resulting in a professional-quality display at the price of mainstream desktop monitors.
“The superior color of our edge-lit quantum dots and our strong price-performance characteristics make them an ideal catalyst for positive disruption in the global monitor industry,” said Matt Mazzuchi, Vice President, Market and Business Development at QD Vision. “Our close collaboration with Philips monitors brought this full gamut color monitor to European consumers.”
The new E6 quantum dot monitor will be available in October 2015 in Europe
