BOE launches a ground-breaking 55-inch UHD AMQLED display
AMQLED is a relatively new rival to technologies such as OLED and QLED. Like the last of those two currently high-end screen materials, it reproduces colors through the medium of quantum dots, which can compete effectively with the former in terms of image quality and consistency. However, in the case of AMQLED, the dots are electroluminescent, which means they can emit light by themselves in response to the current applied to them.
In other words, the resulting AMQLED panel does not require an LCD backlight. This implies the same weight, energy-efficiency and thinness advantages of OLED. In addition, this kind of quantum dot may be capable of a much more even distribution of charges compared to those older standards, which may result in improved color accuracy and uniformity of brightness.
BOE has been involved in the production of AMQLED for several years now, starting out with 5- to 14-inch prototypes showcasing its possible advantages. It is now at a point at which it can introduct its 55-inch 4K/UHD display, the largest and highest-res example based on the technology yet.
The OEM asserts that it can exceed the NTSC color gamut (getting 119% of this, in fact), and has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Therefore, BOE touts its new and state-of-the-art panel as ready for upcoming TVs or large-scale monitors, which may be worth watching out for in the future.
