AU Optronics (AUO) has disclosed it will showcase at SID’s Display Week 2019 mini LED backlit LCD panels ranging from 2.9- to 32-inch sizes with high brightness and high dynamic range for gaming, VR and professional applications.
Designed for high-end gaming notebook PCs, AUO’s 17.3-inch LTPS panel 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. Moreover, the module has the thickness of only 3.5mm, making it the ideal choice for gamers to enjoy the highest mobility possible.
AUO will also display a 15.6-inch LTPS LCD, boasting 4K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and 8.3 ms response time.
For VR headsets, there is a 2.9-inch UHD LTPS display and ultra high pixel density of 1,688 PPI. Adopting mini LED-backlight technology with active matrix driver circuit, the display possesses as many as 2,304 local dimming zones for HDR images, according to the vendor.
Multiple automotive panels
AUO has also rolled out multiple automotive panels to support diverse HMI systems used in smart vehicles. There is one vehicle cockpit display composed of a 12.3-inch cluster and a 20-inch CID/front passenger seat panel by direct bonding lamination, yielding 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.
AUO said it has 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.
Mini LED-backlit monitors
For professional monitor applications, there is a 32-inch UHD 4K display adopting direct-lit mini LED backlight with 1,152 local dimming zones. Its 1,000-nit peak brightness meets the highest VESA DisplayHDR performance level, AUO said.
AUO also offers a comprehensive portfolio of high resolution, wide color gamut, high brightness and high contrast LCDs for diverse medical purposes such as ultrasound, imaging modality, endoscopic, and micro-invasive surgeries.
For smart retail and financial institutions, AUO presents a 13.3-inch Full HD display embedded with NFC (near-field communication) antenna design, capable of supporting data transaction distance of up to 4cm.
For identification and customs inspection purposes, AUO’s new 4.4-inch fingerprint sensor module features high resolution (1600 x 1500), high pixel density of 503 PPI, and a module design of only 12.8 mm thick. Its large sensor area allows for as many as four fingers to be detected at a time.―Digitimes
