AUO elaborates on its cutting-edge AmLED display technology at CES 2022AUO introduced its advanced AmLED display technology for creator and gaming laptops in September 2021 and, obviously, the brand has partnered up with leading vendors Acer, Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI to launch several high-end desktop monitors and notebooks at CES 2022.

The first time we heard about AUO's AmLED technology for monitors was when MSI introduced the MSI MEG Artymis 341 Mini LED back in November. Back then, this model was announced as the world's first 34-inch monitor with Mini LED technology created with the help of AUO's AmLED solution. This monitor will also feature Quantum Dot Premium Color, the highest color standard of a gaming monitor that will offer the best gaming experience and 1000 nits of peak brightness. The model will also have an extreme curve - 800R in the central part going 1000R towards the sides. This monitor has won the CES 2022 Innovation Awards. Full specs are not out yet.

At CES 2022, the Asus ROG Swift PG32UQXE was announced with AUO's Adaptive Mini LED (AmLED) panel technology with 576 independent local dimming zones and achieving 1000 nits of peak brightness. The 31.9" IPS panel from AUO has a 4K resolution and true 10-bit color support, Quantum Dot technology, and 97% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. This monitor is also NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate certified with a built-in G-Sync module and features the NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer.

Another gaming monitor, introduced at CES 2022, is the Acer Predator X32 with a 4K 31.5-inch IPS display using a Mini LED backlight with 576 mini LEDs for 1200 nits of peak brightness. It has a 160Hz refresh rate, 99% Adobe RGB coverage, and arrives with NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate and NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer.

"AUO's AmLED technology featuring our exclusive adaptive control technology has significantly broadened the scope of mini LED displays' professional applications," said James Chen, Senior Vice President of AUO Display Strategy Business Group." Besides joining forces with IT brands to unveil new flagship products with HDR high brightness, high contrast ratio, ultra-high refresh rate, and high color volume during CES to deliver an unprecedented visual experience for gamers and professional content creators, AUO is also dedicated to applying large size AmLED displays to smart vehicles, satisfying consumers' demand for perfect image quality in terms of work, entertainment, and transportation."

Through exclusive "Adaptive Image Processing" and "Adaptive Dimming and Boosting" technologies, AUO AmLED technology precisely and dynamically adjust images in real-time. It also dynamically adjusts the power saving mode based on different usage scenarios such as drawing graphics, creating videos, or playing games, thereby significantly improving the display’s image details and energy-saving performance. AmLED utilizes inorganic materials that ensure better durability, mitigating color decay and image burn-in over time. Moreover, it is compatible with G-Sync, FreeSync, and Adaptive-Sync technologies to present sharp images with high frame rates, as well as smooth, fluid game graphics that guarantee a more realistic gaming experience. Apart from delivering flawless graphics, the AmLED technology also successfully reduces harmful blue light by 80% and thus received international eye comfort certification in hopes of protecting the eyesight of gamers and content creators.

With AmLED's advantages such as high brightness, high ambient contrast ratio (ACR), high color volume, and high reliability recognized by IT applications such as monitors and notebooks, AUO also introduced large size AmLED displays to the automotive market. During CES, AUO showcased a series of automotive display applications by integrating the constantly evolving proprietary adaptive control technology with in-cell touch solutions and a stunning super narrow bezel design. Through the application of AmLED technology to in-car center informative display and cluster dashboards, AUO aims to clearly present traffic information to the driver, as well as to meet the passengers' needs for in-car entertainment, therefore materializing the vision of smart cockpit in the future.
