Many new core technologies design elements showcased in LG’s new OLED Evo range are expected to feature in their new NanoCell LCD TV lineup. On CES 2021 – Day 1, LG has revealed what they call their most advanced LCD TVs to date – The LG QNED Display MiniLED TVs.
QNED stands for Quantum Nano-Cell Emitting Diode. The Quantum part means that these screens include Quantum Dot technology that enhances/replaces the traditional colored photoresists in an LCD color filter with submicroscopic conducting nanocrystals. How does that matter? Quantum Dot technology enables pixels to maintain color accuracy and range, even at blistering brightness levels, so your screen can look as vibrant as possible with perfect color reproduction. OLEDs often reproduce washed out colors at higher brightness levels. LG uses its in-house NanoCell material to shape the backlight’s spectral power, filtered through a quantum-dot enhancement film.
However, QNED remains a filter-based display technology at its core. That is, filters are used to block light from shining through, which is never 100% perfect, resulting in a little light always bleeding through, decreasing the screen’s overall contrast and color saturation. LG more than makes up for all of that by combining Edge LED and Full-Array LED with an incredible 2500 local dimming zones and almost 30,000 individual pixels in their 8k panel. Doing so enables the QNED screens to be bright while being incredibly color-accurate and sharp for an excellent HDR experience.
LG has promised a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio along with a 120 Hz refresh rate. At this rate, the QNED screens seem all set to put up more than a decent fight to the more expensive OLED screens. Featuring only the cutting-edge in terms of features, they enable industry-leading color reproduction, vividness, saturation, contrast, and brightness levels in your TVs for a top of the line experience in media consumption.
