Developing the gaming-monitor market
Gaming monitors are now a large and fast-growing
market, with lots of potential for further growth, as esports attract a growing
band of dedicated enthusiasts. AOC has responded by working closely with game
developers to provide professional gaming displays and further build the
fast-evolving gaming community. AOC has, for example, sponsored the APAC
Cybercafe Tournament for the highly popular PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s
Battlegrounds) game. AOC has also partnered with the world’s most competitive
esports teams and organizers, including the IeSF and the G2 Esports club, to
develop such superb products as the G2 Series, and to reach out and meet the
needs of this unique audience.
This is the real explanation
of why AOC is now the world’s most popular gaming monitor brand. AOC has
consistently stayed in touch with the market at a grassroots level, putting a
lot of effort into meeting the needs of professional gamers with the Hardcore
series, as well as those of casual video-game players. AOC has also worked
tirelessly with different gaming bodies to fine-tune their world-beating
products, garnering in the process many prestigious awards, including the much
coveted iF and Red Dot design awards, plus an array of product-review awards
from such well known publications as PC World, Digit, PC Gamer, and Chip.
AOC will of course continue
to develop its offering for the gaming-monitor segment. In particular, the G3
and Agon 4 series are upcoming, equipped with a slew of top-end features that
include 1000R curvature, UHD resolution and all the brilliance of High Dynamic
Range (HDR) technology.
To match the increasing
demand for a competitive edge and top-tier performance, AOC launched Agon —
AOC’s specialist gaming monitor brand. Named after the Ancient Greek word for
“struggle” or “contest”, the Agon brand represents AOC’s engagement with the
world of gaming. In addition to embracing new technologies, we’ve put our money
