In an industry first, TCL today introduced a 55-inch full-gamut 4K UHD TV with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price at one-third the cost of comparable OLED color televisions. All consumers of entertainment, whether for gaming, movies or other programming, can now enhance their viewing experience with deeper, sharper and more natural color at an accessible price. The QD (Quantum Dots) plus LED television shatters the prohibitively high price barrier of OLED TVs, previously the only other technology to provide consumers with the richness of a full-gamut color viewing experience.

Equipped with QD Vision’s Color IQ™ technology, the new TCL 55-inch 4K UHD TV delivers crisp 100% NTSC color gamut performance that establishes a new standard of color performance that consumers will now expect from all viewing experiences. TCL is the world’s third best-selling television brand, and QD Vision is the leading manufacturer of quantum dot optical components for HDTVs and other LCD products. The new TVs will initially be available in China, followed by additional worldwide availability. They are on display this week at TCL’s IFA booth, Hall 21b / Stand 104.
“We are pleased to extend our relationship with QD Vision to the exciting new 4K UHD world. The addition of QD technology to our 4K televisions will offer great value to consumers who want to enjoy the advanced picture quality with vivid colors and shaper images,” said E. Hao, CEO of TCL Multimedia.
“Many TV manufacturers are launching 4K TVs this year. TCL’s bold leadership recognizes that adding full-gamut color at an accessible price creates a really strong differentiator, and a superior value for TCL customers,” said Jason Carlson, QD Vision CEO. “TVs with full-gamut color really stand out in the show room. Customers can easily tell the difference in performance, and will understand they are getting a TV with much better image quality. This is a world-class system that sets a high bar for the rest of the industry. TCL recognizes that providing consumers a superior-quality viewing experience at an affordable price will drive steady market-share growth.”
Color IQ is QD Vision’s innovative semiconductor nanocrystal technology that enables Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to achieve full-gamut 100% NTSC color performance. The combination of QD Vision’s quantum dot innovation, in-house, high-volume manufacturing operations and exceptional customer service enables TCL to deliver full-gamut color TV models at LCD TV prices.
Research shows that “colorfulness” is the single most important perceptual factor in viewers’ estimation of picture quality. Until now, most mainstream LCD TV designs have had to sacrifice color quality, typically only delivering 60-70% of the NTSC color gamut standard. Color IQ is capable of delivering 100% of the NTSC color gamut, and works with all major LCD applications, including LCD TVs, LCD monitors and other displays, providing both superior color performance and high system efficiency. Full-gamut color displays enabled by cost-effective quantum dot technology deliver vibrant colorfulness and 100% accuracy, and are poised for universal adoption in the coming years.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
