Quantum Dots: Delivering Color, Value & Profitability
Wide color gamut is an exciting growth area in displays, and Quantum Dots, the technology behind the brightest, most colorful displays on the market today, now outsells WOLED-based sets by more than two to one. The TV brands and models that have emphasized color as a prime differentiator have reaped the most benefit from this trend.
So why have Quantum Dots been so successful? In his talk, Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove will discuss the value that Quantum Dot technology delivers across the supply chain, from manufacturer and OEM to retailer and consumer.
Jason Hartlove joined Nanosys in 2008 with a proven track record of turning emerging technologies into successful commercial products. He previously developed the Optical Mouse which has sold more than one billion units worldwide and is a standard feature in all PCs. Hartlove also pioneered and developed key technologies used in CMOS image sensors in smartphone cameras, high capacity lithium-ion battery technologies and solid-state inverter technology used in solar and electric car charging systems.
His vision for Nanosys has led the company to successfully pioneer and develop Quantum Dot based display technologies. Today, Nanosys maintains a nearly 100% market share for materials used in these ultra-bright displays with lifelike colors sold by companies including Samsung, Vizio, Hisense, TCL, Acer, Asus and Sharp.
Prior to joining Nanosys, he was president of the Imaging Solutions Division of MagnaChip Semiconductor in Seoul, South Korea, where he turned an internally focused semiconductor group into a multinational company on track for an IPO. Before MagnaChip, Hartlove was vice president and general manager of the Sensor Solutions Division of Agilent Technologies, and previously held management and development positions at Hewlett-Packard. Hartlove is the author of more than 20 patents, including the winner of the Hewlett Award in 2004 for best patent. He holds a B.S. in electrical engineering from UCLA and has completed graduate work at the Anderson School of Management at UCLA.
