Nanosys Quantum Dot technology is typically used to produce high quality, vibrant images on Quantum Dot televisions from top brands including Samsung, Hisense, TCL and Vizio. For the first time, this film shows the nanomaterials in their vividly colorful natural state, outside of the TV.
“Consumers know that Quantum Dots stand for great color. When they see the ‘Q’ on the side of their TV box, they know they are getting a more lifelike visual experience with accurate color,” said Jason Hartlove, president and CEO of Nanosys. “While millions of consumers own Quantum Dot TVs today, few outside our company have had the chance to see just how beautiful the technology can be. We’ve created this short film so that everyone can experience the magic of Quantum Dots.”
Known for his contributions to feature films such as Iron Man, The Chronicles of Narnia and, more recently, the pioneering aerial cinematography featured on the Apple TV, director/DP Phil Holland found creative inspiration for “Quantum Flows” in the purity of Quantum Dot colors, as well as the works of artist Jackson Pollock and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.
“This was a unique opportunity to work with Quantum Dots in a new and interesting way that most people have never seen,” said Holland. “This short film came to life with the help of motion control robots, controlled UV lighting, and Rec.2020 8K capture.”
Supporting the abstract vision for this project required Nanosys scientists to develop a proprietary new formulation and process for Quantum Dots. Trapping the quantum dots in tiny polymer spheres just a few microns across enabled them to easily disperse them in a variety of liquids, pastes and oils.
Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove and Holland will each present at the 8K Display Summit 2019being held today at the Millennium Times Square Hotel in New York City.
