New Next Generation UHD 4K Curved LCD TV Displays with 4000R Golden Curvature for Revolutionary Visual Experience

AUO will exhibit a full lineup of 42 to 85-inch UHD 4K curved LCD TV displays, among which the 65, 75 and 85-inch next generation UHD 4K curved LCD TV displays have been designed with the world's leading 4000R golden curvature(*). The concave screen adopts optimal visual design, so that its free viewing angle delivers vivid and undistorted images. The panoramic view and surround sound system create immersive experience for exceptional audio visual entertainment. AUO's next generation UHD 4K curved LCD TV displays integrate true UHD 4K resolution with their RGB spectrum, wide color gamut and 120Hz frame rate to elevate image depth and stereo perception, depicting the most exquisite image quality and lifelike motions. The super narrow bezel and curved design reveal a slender contour that adds a touch of modern stylish taste to the home atmosphere.

High-End Monitor Display Applications Aimed at Professional Markets

To address the significant demand in the commercial market, AUO has developed various types of professional monitor displays for graphics, image processing and audio-video gaming purposes. AUO's 27 and 32-inch UHD 4K edge-to-edge monitor displays have the slim edge of 6.1 mm, 100% sRGB wide color gamut, and AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) technology to manifest true and delicate colors from every viewing angle. AUO will also lead the world in presenting 32-inch QHD (2560x1440) curved monitor display(*), which is also ultra slim and has narrow bezel and 100% sRGB wide color gamut. In addition to professional applications, the display offers the best performance possible for personal entertainment and gaming purposes.

Diverse Pubic Information Displays for Daily Applications

For pubic information displays, the 38-inch bar display specially designed for passenger cars sports ultra wide format. Its 16:4.7 ratio allows travel information and advertisements to be shown concurrently on the screen. With symmetric bezel design, the display could be applied flexibly in public spaces such as stations, airports and shopping centers. AUO's 55-inch ultra high brightness display has an impressive 2500nits brightness and tolerance to high temperature. Its special circular polarizer design for low reflection enables images to stay clear and vivid even when viewed under strong sunlight or through sunglasses. The 65-inch e-board, equipped with direct bonding of enhanced cover glass, offers even more precise touch function. The colors and brightness are more evenly distributed on the screen, and the panel is more durable. The 65-inch e-board is designed for multiple applications including education and business meeting purposes.
