Hisense explains Quantum Dot



Hisense new and exciting 2020 ULED 4K TV range offers Quantum Dot Colour Technology, delivering over a billion stunning shades of vivid colour and image precision!

Hisense ULED TVs offer the ultimate 4K experience bringing together the best Colour, Contrast, Motion and Detail technology.

ULED is the latest advancement in TV and Hisense latest ULED series makes use of Quantum Dot and a Wide Colour Gamut to produce a stunningly realistic picture quality, which is ‘almost’ as good as the real thing.


So, what are quantum dots and what do they mean to you?

Quantum dots are tiny crystals otherwise known as Nanocrystals. When light is shone on to them, they give off a precise colour depending on their size, which can range from 2 to 10 nanometers.

This means, larger dots appear more red whilst smaller dots emit blue light.


Now, let’s look at how Quantum Dot Colour is different to standard LCD TVs.

Traditional LCD TVs use a blue LED backlight which is coated with a layer of yellow phosphorus to create white light. This white light then passes through an RGB filter to create the picture. The issue with this is that the white light created is not pure and light can be lost during the filtering process, reducing brightness levels.

Quantum Dot Colour Technology removes the need for this yellow phosphorus coating and instead adds a layer of Quantum Dots, which we now know are also known as Nanocrystals.

These Nanocrystals emit light and colour based on their precise size, when light is shone on to them. This allows for cleaner, purer light passing through the RGB filter more efficiently, with less wasted light, meaning colours are more vibrant, whites are purer, and images are brighter.

Quantum Dot Colour Technology accurately displays the three primary colours – especially red and green, this means red can be seen as truly RED!

For the viewer, colours are not only more vivid and saturated but also cover a wider spectrum range – over a billion colours in fact. With more subtle shades, hues and tones on offer, Hisense ULED TV with Quantum Dot lets you get closer to reality with colours that are true-to-life. – making Hisense ULED 4K TVs with Quantum Dot a perfect choice for a premium yet affordable viewing experience.
