Coming to a Screen Near You?

Just over a year ago, we took a look at quantum dots, at least in the incarnation that Nanosys was giving them in smaller LCDs. Well, they’ve just announced a new process of applying to the dots to films so that they can be used to form larger screens – arbitrarily large, including TVs. They call the result Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF).

According to them, your colorful screen isn’t showing you nearly what it could be. By a rather large margin; they claim you’re viewing a gamut only 20-35% of what the human eye can discern; they claim to raise that number to 60%.
