AU Optronics Corp. Announces 13 Technical Papers at 2008 SID Technical Symposium (2008.05.15)
AUO Advanced Capacitor Coupling Technology Honored as Distinguished Paper
Hsinchu, Taiwan,

SID (Society for Information Display) will roll out Display Week 2008 (its 46th seminar) from May 18 through 23 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. AU Optronics Corp. ("AUO" or the "Company") (TAIEX: 2409; NYSE: AUO) will unveil a series of complete and innovated TFT-LCD panel technologies. Mr. Paul Peng, Executive VP of AUO’s Global Business Unit, is also going to join the opening of the Symposium with a keynote speech about the evolution and application of AUO Green Solutions. 


AUO announced a 42" double-side display for public information application, which can display two different images simultaneously.

SID, based in the U.S. with over 8000 members worldwide, consists of professionals involved in both the technical and business aspects of display research, design, manufacturing, applications, marketing, and sales. To assist in the continual development of next generation TFT-LCD technologies, SID holds this seminar and announces selected papers every year. This year a total of 13 AUO papers were chosen to be announced, which is the best record that AUO has ever achieved. One paper in particular was honored this year as a distinguished paper; this paper discusses the innovative threshold voltage design of AUO Advanced Capacitor Coupling Technology, which can make the reflective gamma curve closer to the transmissive gamma curve in a single-gap transflective LCD. 

Dr. Fang-Chen Luo, AUO’s CTO and Vice President will also join the AMLCD panel on May 20, representing AUO to discuss the future development trends of AMLCD. Dr. Luo will also receive a 2008 Presidential Citation for AUO’s dedicated contribution to the global TFT-LCD industry. 

“We are honored to receive this award and pleased to have this opportunity to showcase our innovative TFT-LCD technologies during SID. AUO has always focused on developing new TFT-LCD technologies. This is also the first time we are exhibiting a series of power-saving TFT-LCD technologies for all screen sizes with our green solutions, which offer our clients products with better performance and energy-saving functions. This is part of our continued commitment to society for being a better enterprise citizen” Dr. Luo states. 

From May 20 through 23, AUO will exhibit new technologies at SID 2008, including Ultra Slim 42" LCD TV with LED with less than 10 mm module thickness, the latest 46” ECO-Friendly LCD TV panel with power-savings of up to 50%, the latest Ink-Jet Printing Color Filter Technology with 1/3 material saving and waste reducing, and in-cell multi-touch technology and curved display. 

In terms of public information display applications, this will be the first time that AUO showcases its 42" double-side display and 65" full HD portrait display with built-in AMVA technology. With its vivid, rich and colorful image quality, it is the best choice for digital signage applications.. The new 42" double-side display shares a single backlight module with the thickness of just 60 mm. In addition, it can display different images on both sides simultaneously therefore create higher advertising benefits. For general applications, AUO is exhibiting a series of TFT-LCD displays with LED backlights, which can be applied to handheld devices, ATMs or other business and entertainment applications.
