  • Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect (H-K effect) describes the influence of color purity on the perceived brightness of a colored object. Quantum dots (QD) based backlights can enhance the color quality of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with improved perceived brightness due to the well-known H-K effect. However, the H-K effect of QD embedded TVs (also known as QLED TV) has not been fully demonstrated. In this paper, we investigated the H-K effect of QLED TVs through a comparative study between QLED backlights and YAG-LED backlights. By comparing the viewers’ experimental results with the Kaiser and Nayatani model, we demonstrate that a QLED TV shows significant H-K effect. To achieve the same perceived brightness with YAG-LED TV, the physical brightness of QLED TV was greatly decreased to 75% for pure red, 86% for pure green, and 74%-88% for bright colorful images. Moreover, QLED TVs are strongly preferred over YAG-LED TVs even when both QLED TV and YAG-LED TV show the same perceived brightness. The results imply the bright future of QLED TVs toward healthly displays.
