AUO Corporation ("AUO" or the "Company") (TSE: 2409; NYSE: AUO) today announced that its leading array of display technologies will be showcased at SID’s Display Week 2019, the annual premier international gathering of the electronic information displays industry, in San Jose, California from May 14 to 16.
Exhibition highlights will include an extended suite of mini LED backlit LCD panels from 2.9 to 32 inches with high brightness and high dynamic range across gaming, VR and professional applications; the 15.6-inch UHD 4K LTPS LCD with the world’s highest(*) 120Hz refresh rate for gaming notebook PC; high potency car displays featuring multiple panel lamination with curved design; high performance display technologies for medical, financial and security purposes will also be demonstrated.
High Performance Gaming Displays for Most Sensational and Immersive Experience
Designed for high-end gaming notebook PCs, AUO’s 17.3-inch LTPS LCD has UHD 4K ultra high resolution, mini LED backlight design with 240 zones and peak brightness of over 1,000 nits to meet the highest VESA DisplayHDR performance level, delivering images with utmost authenticity and richness in details. Moreover, the module has the thickness of only 3.5mm, making it the ideal choice for gamers to enjoy the highest mobility possible. The 15.6-inch LTPS LCD combines the best of image quality and refresh rate, boasting UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) ultra high resolution and the world’s highest(*) 120Hz refresh rate plus 8.3 ms response time to serve the enthusiasts of speed, and are also perfect for professional and hybrid notebook PCs.
For VR headsets, the 2.9-inch LTPS display has ultra high resolution (3456 x 3456) and ultra high pixel density of 1,688 PPI. Adopting mini LED backlight technology with active matrix (AM) driver circuit, the display possesses as many as 2,304 local dimming zones for HDR images to reveal perfect image depth and details for lifelike gaming experience.
Streamlined and Curved Car Displays with Tremendous Design Flexibility
Smart cars are now equipped with diverse HMI systems that require a lot more displays to support. AUO has seized the opportunities by developing a full range of high performance car displays applying multiple panel lamination. Specifically, one vehicle cockpit display joins a 12.3-inch cluster and a 20-inch CID/front passenger seat panel by direct bonding lamination, yielding a huge streamlined display with high resolution, high brightness and 1,200R curvature; another V-shaped vehicle cockpit display consisting of a 12.3-inch cluster and 12.3-inch CID comes in 300R curvature and cold-form cover lens, enabling accurate image performance.
AUO has successfully applied smart HMI systems on curved displays without sacrificing their brightness, as demonstrated by the 12.3-inch high resolution cluster display exhibiting 750R curvature while supporting dynamic backlight for images with 1,000-nit high brightness and high dynamic range. The 14.5-inch LTPS CID panel integrates both in-cell touch solution and curved design, with the display bent on the sides where TDDI (touch and display driver integration) ICs are located. As a result the display appears in a compact structure, closely integrated with the car interior to provide all the more intuitive and convenient user experience.
