Flexible technology redefines traditional display shapes. AUO unveiled its 17.3-inch foldable Micro LED display at the SID Display Week, featuring a folding hinge with a minimal radius of just 4mm. This design maximizes display space and enhances portability for large screens, integrating the functionality of both a tablet and a display screen. Equipped with a wide color gamut coverage 100% Adobe RGB and 1000 nits of ultra-high brightness, it ensures precise color accuracy and clear visibility outdoors. Catering to the on-the-go needs of travelers, photographers, designers, YouTubers, Instagram live streamers, and more. Ideal for instant photo shooting, data transmission, real-time sketching, and traffic viewing, serving as the perfect companion for dynamic creative work.

The advancement in large-size technology extends the boundaries of display dimensions. AUO has overcome the challenges associated with yield rates of large screens and unveils the world’s largest (*) single screen size, 31-inch Large Size Micro LED display. This display incorporates advanced driving technology and A.R.T. (Advanced Reflectionless Technology), featuring specialized surface treatments that minimize glare from ambient light, accurately rendering images both indoors and outdoors. Its bezel-less design offers a super-wide viewing angle, liberates displays from size constraints, seamless tiling into an infinitely large screen for breathtaking visual effects. Additionally, its applications can be extended to the medical management field.

The fusion of exceptional transparency ushers in a new era of human-machine interaction (HMI) for in-vehicle experiences. Developed from a user-centric prospective, AUO’s Micro LED Display HMI solution is tailored specifically for environments beyond living and working spaces, akin to mobile cabins. This solution, designed with both the driver and front passenger in mind, features high-resolution displays that provide both entertainment and safety, thereby redefining the future of automotive displays. Having the front seat boasting a Micro LED display with a transparent, bezel-less design, a pixel density of 163ppi, and maintains a maximum brightness of 5000 nits under sunlight, ensuring the driver receives clear information and an optimal wide view for road safety.

Meanwhile, the front passenger seat features the world’s first (*) smart Micro LED display with an integrated camera, fully utilizing the strength of Micro LED to integrate seamlessly with sensor technologies. This display has a resolution of FHD and can reach a maximum brightness of 5000 nits. By leveraging the compact nature of Micro LED, it incorporates the Under-Display Camera (UDC) technology with a hidden camera that maximizes screen space. This innovation addresses challenges of UDC image distortion by employing cutting-edge technologies such as low-diffraction circuit layout, enhancing the audiovisual presentation to achieve exceptional clarity. This transformation shifts the display from a single-output tool to one that facilitates unprecedented intuitive eye contact, greatly enhancing two-way interaction and communication. Additionally, the display can be fully folded away when not in use, allowing passengers to enjoy unobstructed in-vehicle space and view of the outside scenery.
