The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.
“It is humbling and motivational to receive an award named for Thomas Edison, who was known for turning ideas into inventions through hard work and persistence,” said John Ritter, Executive Vice President, Product Development for QD Vision. “Our entire QD Vision team is inspired by Mr. Edison as we continue to push the boundaries of quantum mechanics and nanotechnology to bring the world’s best color to televisions, computer monitors, and other LCD displays.”
Being recognized with an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business.
