Robust Panels from Innolux at Touch Taiwan

As well as the mid-size panels that we covered last week, Innolux has shared news about the automotive displays that it is showing at Touch Taiwan (24th-26th August), which are designed for the Internet of Vehicles (IoV).

Growing shipments of connected cars are driving demand for premium automotive displays: an area that Innolux is keen to exploit. The company focuses its automotive efforts on large, full-colour screens with high resolutions, colour and contrast, as well as wide viewing angles. They are also designed to be weatherproof and anti-glare.

Innolux is showing a 7″ AAS touch display with lamination cover glass as its mainstream product. Nearby is a ‘technological breakthrough’: a 10.2″ 1920 x 1080 model with integrated touch and lamination cover glass, to be used in the central information display (CID).

In the non-touch area, Innolux has 6.5″ and 8.25″ AAS + lamination cover glass CID products. Additionally, the company has a 1.8″ HUD and a 12.3″ digitised instrument cluster display.

Industrial panels are also on show. For example, a 10.4″ 1024 x 768 MVA panel, for automotive and PoS applications. This panel has 176° viewing angles, a ‘wide’ operating temperature range and 25ms response time. A 12.1″ TN panel, also 1024 x 768 and designed for the same applications, is also present; this model has 600 cd/m² of brightness and will operate between -30° and 80°C.

Two 15″ industrial panels are being demonstrated: one with a -30° to 80° temperature range and covering ‘high’ levels of NTSC. It has 88° viewing angles both vertically and horizontally, and is a TN panel. The other 15″+ panel is a 15.6″ unit with 1920 x 1080 resolution, using AAS technology. It has 88° viewing angles and a 25ms response time.

Finally, in the business space, Innolux has two colour medical panels, with 2MP and 3MP resolutions. The former is an AAS model with high brightness and contrast, while the latter is an IPS panel.

As well as the above models, Innolux is showing multiple high-end and large-screen panels for TVs and public displays. One of the highlights is a 100″ UltraHD TV panel, winner of the ‘Outstanding Product Award’ at the Gold Panel Awards 2016, organised by the Taiwan Display Union Association. It is the largest UHD panel produced by a Taiwanese manufacturer.

45″, 65″, 75″ and 85″ UHD panels are also on show, with wide colour gamuts. The 65″ model is said to be ‘borderless’ and is described as a ‘technical breakthrough…for large-size TV panels.’

In the PD space, Innolux is demonstrating large, shock- and humidity-resistant panels, with high resolution and low power consumption. One is an 85″ portrait-style UHD display, while another of the same size features touch. Innolux is also showing two 29″ bar-type displays, with 3840 x 1080 and 1920 x 540 resolution.
