These panels are equipped with full HD resolution or HD720, and wide viewing angles. In particular, AUO's 5-inch Full HD AHVA Mobile Display has full HD resolution of 443ppi (1080x1920). The design of super narrow bezel with a mere 1mm-width from display area to touch panel border maximizes the display area available, making image and video viewing area larger in frame size.
AUO is also the development of UHD 4K display technology, the hottest trend in the TV display market. The 65-inch and 55-inch UHD 4K TV panels that will be demonstrated in the exhibit feature a quad-HD resolution of 3840x2160. Among them, AUO's 65-inch UHD 4K panel equipped with pattern retarder 3D presents even more vivid and higher quality 3D images.
The commercial applications of public information displays are becoming more diverse. AUO will demonstrate various applications, including digital signage, transparent cabinet showcases, mirror displays, and transparent displays for vending machine in the exhibition. The 55-inch Switchable Mirror Display can show Full HD advertising information and images. Its touch function allows users to freely choose the content they wish to view. Users can browse the latest merchandise information during clothes fitting when the panel is switched to a full-length mirror function.
Moreover, AUO will also showcase its 65-inch Hybrid Transparent Display for smart vending machines. Its panel transparency and color saturation can be adjusted based on store owners' demands for highlighting product features to make the multimedia contents displayed clearer. This Hybrid Transparent Display also has built-in touch functions and interactive games. It could be further applied to displays of home appliances in the future, or shop windows.
AUO has made an accomplishment in the development of touch total solutions. The company's One Glass Solution Touch integrates the cover lens and sensor glass into the ultra slim and light modules. The direct bonding manufacturing process has simplified the production procedure of the integration of touch structure, panel and backlight to provide slimmer and lighter, high optical and anti-glare performance modules. In addition, AUO will introduce its 11.6-inch display panel for ultra notebook application with OGS Touch and AHVA technology. The thickness of its touch panel is only 0.7mm making it much thinner and lighter.
