IPS panels already have a great colour accuracy, but not good enough for the people over at LG. They have created the Quantum Dot technology to increase the colour accuracy as much as 30 percent.

The technology displays an extremely wide color gamut, making it ideal for 4K content. The technology works by harnessing nano crystals that range in size from 2 to 10 nanometers where each dot emits a different color depending on its size. By adding a film of those quantum dots in front of the LCD backlight, picture color reproduction rate and overall brightness are significantly improved.

“Quantum dot’s vibrant and vivid color reproduction capabilities brings LG’s LCD TVs to the next level when it comes to picture quality,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “The addition of ULTRA HD TV with quantum dot technology to our TV lineup positioned under our award-winning OLED TVs further establishes LG as a leading provider of the most diverse and innovative TV display technologies in the industry.”

The new technology will, as so much these days, be displayed at CES in Vegas this coming January and the release also stated that the TVs made with this technology are both free of cadmium and other toxic heavy metals.
