Dealing with higher brightness levels poses challenges as it normally means the display device consumes more energy. Higher brightness levels can also cause the device to generate more heat and without proper measures, excessive heat could pose a threat on the product’s lifespan.
With SUHD TVs that feature Quantum dot technology, however, Samsung has an answer that allows TV sets to hit those brightness levels of up to 1,000 nits without the pain points. This is in part thanks to the photo-active property of quantum dots, which makes them very energy-efficient. Samsung was actually able to improve the overall energy efficiency of its 2016 SUHD TVs while enabling the set to hit 1,000 nits.
One Billion Colours
Quantum dots also emit a very pure colour, which helps quantum dot displays show much more accurate colours. And by using these accurate reds, greens, and blues, it is able to display broader range of colours. On the other hand, light from conventional fluorescents tend to get mixed with adjacent colours, dropping the range of colours conventional TVs can show. In fact, Samsung’s 2016 SUHD TVs with Quantum Dot technology are able to show up to one billion colours – 64 times more colour than the average TV.
