The show floor at CES 2015 finally opened up today, and we spent the entire time staring down the best TVs all the major manufacturers had to offer. Sony, Samsung, Sharp, LG, and Panasonic all had something special to show, and we were sure to give them all our undivided attention.
The takeaway here is: better color. Each manufacturer is either using quantum dots or a phosphor-coated LED technology in order to expand color gamut (the total colors that can be produced by the television). In either case, the result is color that’s closer to what you can see at the movie theater, known as DCI (digital cinema initiative) P3 color space. The effect can be incredible, though the content that supports it isn’t available yet.
But don’t worry, that’s coming soon, too.
