Edge-to-Edge Bezel-less ALCD Technology for Spectacular Boundless Experience
AUO continuously challenges itself to integrate and innovate display technologies and presents the 65-inch and 75-inch edge-to-edge bezel-less ALCD TV displays, using AUO's self-developed GOA (Gate on Array) technology and bezel-less production method to significantly lower the number of display driver ICs, while expanding the field of view. Meanwhile, various technologies such as UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) ultra high resolution, next-generation wide color gamut, 4000R golden curvature, and HDR (High Dynamic Range) have been adopted together. The display’s backlight can be controlled in zones to achieve higher contrast through local dimming. Images are depicted in more details against dark backgrounds, resembling more of what the human eye can see in the real world.
8K4K Ultra High Resolution TV Display Technology for Interpretation of Most Minute Details
AUO will exhibit for the first time 8K4K ultra high resolution TV display technology, realizing the most intricate picture quality that is sixteen times the resolution of full HD (7680 x 4320). Items as close as a single hair, or scenery as far as remote mountains and forests can all be captured faithfully in their most subtle details. Furthermore, the display features 4000R golden curvature, edge-to-edge bezel-less design, and REC 2020 90%, the new color gamut broadcasting standard published by the ITU for ultra high resolution (4K & 8K) displays, exhibiting full image details and true colors. Viewers would feel as if they had stepped into the brilliant world in the screen. The display’s super slim direct LED backlight structure enables the module to be only 20mm thick, adding a touch of simplistic, modern taste with its ultra slim feature.
Full Range of High Refresh Rate Gaming Monitor Panels Serving Professional Gamers' Needs
AUO has the industry's most complete gaming displays product line, and led the industry by developing a series of professional grade gaming monitor panels integrating high refresh rate, large-sized display, high resolution, and edge-to-edge bezel-less curved design. Among them, the world's first(*) 27-inch gaming monitor panel with 144Hz refresh rate and UHD 4K ultra high resolution combines extremely delicate image details and dynamic motion flow, supporting professional gamers to become more invincible than ever in games. The world's first(*) 25-inch 240Hz ultra high refresh rate gaming monitor panel with 1ms super fast response time is capable of delivering smooth gaming scenes with accurate image details and no lag, allowing professional gamers to get high chances of winning in matter of milliseconds. 35-inch WQHD (3440 x 1440) ultra wide curved gaming monitor panel has 21:9 ultra wide cinema grade aspect ratio and the world's highest(*) 1800R curvature design to deliver an immersive sensory experience for viewers to enjoy.
Extreme Narrow Bezel Video Wall for Next Generation Business Applications
