xQDEF™ Laminate delivers no-compromise quantum dot color and brightness for displays in a new, lower-cost package, expanding the market for quantum dot displays
Tier 1 brands expected to launch xQDEF Laminate in display products during the 2nd half of 2022
SILICON VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nanosys, Inc. and Nanjing Bready Advanced Materials Technology Co., Ltd., today announced mass production of the world’s first line of completely air-stable, barrier-free, laminated quantum dot film components xQDEF™ Laminate deliver no-compromise quantum dot color and brightness for displays in a new, lower-cost package, expanding the market for quantum dot displays. Tier-one consumer electronics brands including Hisense, TCL and Vizio are expected to launch display products based on the new components in the 2nd half of 2022.
The new xQDEF components are based on Nanosys’ proprietary air-stable quantum dots to deliver no-compromise display performance while eliminating the need for costly barrier films. The laminate construction allows display makers the ultimate flexibility in white point and color gamut tuning while maintaining full manufacturing compatibility with QDEF™ displays.
Mr. Liu Yong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bready, said “We have had great success as a long-term partner of Nanosys in bringing QDEF™ quantum dot technology to market for our tier one customers in China, Korea, Japan and in the US. Now, we are the first company to provide xQDEF Laminate without the need for barrier films while also delivering the same high standard of reliability as the QDEF, the industry standard. This is a perfect example of successful collaboration between two industry leaders in China and the US. We continue to enjoy the benefits of our close relationship with Nanosys.”
“The display industry has an insatiable demand for brighter, more colorful, lifelike displays. xQDEF provides the same exceptional picture quality improvements as the original QDEF™ products while delivering substantial cost and supply chain advantages. We are excited to introduce this new technology offering with Bready, which has already become one of the dominant QDEF suppliers through their manufacturing innovations.” said Russell Kempt, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Nanosys.
