With UHD (wrongly called #4k ) displays on the horizon, an increased color gamut is one area where new #UHD   displays have the potential to really shine.  Are quantum dots a real technology breakthrough or just a passing fad.  Check out my overview of Quantum Dot display technology for all the details.

http://www.audioholics.com/hdtv-formats/quantum-dot-displays-next-hot-hdtv-tech

#hdtv   #hometheater   #video   #avtweeps  
Quantum dots are tiny phosphorescent crystals that glow when hit with light that allow LED displays to render colors more accurately with better brightness and purity.
