AOC officially unveils “AGON” gaming brand

Sydney Australia, 6 April 2016 – AOC, a global-leader in display technology, has officially launched its new gaming brand: “AGON”. All future AOC premium gaming product releases will be under the AGON name. AGON will also encompass AOC’s future gaming-related activities and social media voice. Some of AOC’s existing gaming displays will be rebranded under AGON.

The name AGON represents AOC’s commitment to the PC gaming segment and the spirit of competitive gaming. AGON is an ancient Greek word (ἀγών), which refers to “a struggle or contest”. The name is also intended to be an acrostic that represents AOC’s vision for AGON.
• AOC to lead the way in gaming monitor development
• Gaming enhanced by the latest technology
• Outstanding performance for a competitive edge
• New standard of gaming for users to enjoy

The AGON design vision
On the product end, AGON displays will put the competitive gamer’s vision at heart with a focus on high performance and convenient design. The mission is to bring beginner and professional gamers alike closer to their champion aspirations. AGON will also have its own social media presence, and create a platform for AOC and fellow gamers to interact, connect, and share gaming-related content.

AGON displays, some of which will be in QHD or 4K resolution, will be packed with the latest in high-performance gaming technology. Features include Adaptive-Sync or G-Sync for smooth visuals and 144Hz refresh rates for faster hardware performance. Unique gaming optimisation features such as the AOC Game Mode will allow users to choose between different modes (e.g. FPS, RTS, etc.). Users will also be able to conveniently shift through these game modes from the comfort of their seat via an AOC-developed remote control. Other optimisation options include Shadow Control, DialPoint, Low Input Lag and more.
