QD Vision is coming to CES to demonstrate a monitor whose color gamut is close to ITU’s Rec 2020, exceeding that of a TCL TV showcased last year with QD Vision’s Color-IQ quantum-dot technology.

The monitor here at CES covers 87 percent of the Rec. 2020 color gamut, which the company said “is the widest coverage of the Rec. 2020 gamut than any commercially available monitor can achieve today.

“ Rec.2020 is optimized for ultra-high definition (UHD) displays and content distribution, QD Vision said. Rec.2020 prescribes a color gamut achieving more than 63 percent of the color spectrum that can be perceived by the human eye, exceeding the DCI-P3 standard used by digital cinemas to display 46 percent of perceivable colors, QD Vision said. Rec 2020 delivers 90 percent more colors than Rec.709, which is used in Blu-ray and 4K streaming services.

QD Vision contends its Color IQ quantum-dot technology is commercially affordable and “the only wide color gamut technology with a viable path to Rec. 2020.”

QD Vision was founded in 2004 by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It holds more than 250 patents and patents pending. The company has raised more than $100 million in financing from venture-capital firms and has teamed with BASF Venture Capital to jointly develop advanced display materials.

The company is at Westgate suites 4106 and 4117.
