QLED

Wossit all abaht then? Been trying to read up on it and every description seems to be different. Is QLED the same as quantum dot LCD, but just a bit better or is it a new self emitting technology rivalling OLED? WHF's own review says the Samsung Q9 is very thin because it doesn't have a backlight, but then I read somewhere else that the backlighting has been tweaked to provide better viewing angles!

Nuvver question

Read a little write up on Panasonic's new OLED with the swish soundbar thingy and this article said it was their first OLED telly. No homework by the writer or does it have a screen made in house?

1) qled is Quantum LED. It's not a self emitting technology.

2) Currently, only LG makes OLED panels. Sony and Panasonic are buying the panels from them.

true qled is meant to be self

true qled is meant to be self-emitting like OLED

samsung was meant to be using that tech in 2018 or 2019 i believe. this is just another name for their LED range, sounds cooler than SUHD but they should of stuck with SUHD until they had the self-emitting tech imo.

Setup: Samsung UE55JS8500, Samsung UBD-K8500 4K Player, Dali Zensor 3, Dali Vokal Centre, Denon AVR-X2200W, Arendal Sub 1, Monitor Audio Radius 45, Elac Debut Atmos

So Samsung's fudging of the facts and describing future tech in combo with current stuff is confusing the journos left, right and centre then. Just as I thought!

I took a screen grab of the WHF article just in case they decided to change it. Biggrin

But if their halfway house is even better than 2016 models and allows them to bypass OLED, doesn't that make sense for them and the buying public?

Initially, we didn't expect to see the first QLED sets hit the market until 2018, but Samsung jumped the gun at CES 2017 and unveiled its new 'QLED' class of 4K TVs.

Is it just a coy marketing ploy, or is the new-gen TV tech really there? It's all a bit "yeah but, no but" at this stage.

Based on Home Technology Editor Ced Yuen's hands-on time with the South Korean firm's premium Samsung Q9F QLED-branded offering, these are seriously impressive new sets, but there are a few caveats worth mentioning.

What Samsung has actually done with its 2017 QLED TVs is to take quantum dots and wrap them in a new metal alloy, which allows for brightness, colour, and viewing-angle capabilities beyond anything we've seen before.

What Samsung hasn't done, though, is ditch the LCD panel intermediary completely. Rather, it's cleverly redesigned it so that backlights can now fire from multiple angles instead of a single trajectory, which is a kind of happy halfway house between the quantum dot of old and the 'pure QLED' we've talked about above.

In other words, Samsung has refined and even redefined quantum-dot screen design, but it hasn't released a QLED TV 'proper', as it were.
