Provides better image quality with deeper color saturation

Santa Clara, CA, April 16, 2015 – Leading LCD supplier Tianma NLT America is introducing a new 21.3” diagonal QXGA (Quad Extended Graphics Array) LCD prototype that features quantum dot technology with NLT Technologies’ proprietary new SFT2 (Super Fine TFT2) technology.

SFT2 is NLT’s proprietary new version of SFT, comparable to In-Plane Switching, and a technology that provides excellent viewing performance, even in extreme, off-angle viewing conditions. It significantly improves the aperture ratio compared to conventional TFT via a newly developed pixel structure, resulting in high transmissivity and wide viewing angles. Thanks to the ultra-high aperture ratio, the light transmissivity dramatically increases, enabling a significant reduction in backlight power consumption (reduced approximately 30% compared with conventional LCDs).

In addition to SFT2, the prototype also utilizes quantum dot technology. This technology adjusts the wavelength of incident light and enriches color gamut. Usually, adaption of quantum dot technology reduces the luminance of the backlight, causing higher power consumption. When combined with SFT2, however, rich colors can be displayed at high brightness with low power consumption.

The display achieves high luminance (700 cd/m2), high resolution and 100% Adobe RGB coverage. The combination of SFT2 and quantum dot technology results in better image quality with deeper color saturation, especially superior red color reproduction, making it ideal for medical diagnostic applications as well as graphics and broadcast applications.

A prototype of the new QXGA/quantum dot LCD with SFT2 technology will be showcased at Display Week 2015 in San Jose, California, June 2-4, in Booth 917.
