AOC introduces its new Agon gaming brand

Posted on Friday, May 27 2016 @ 13:33:35 CEST by


AOC created "Agon", a new brand that will be used for all of the company's future gaming products.
AOC, a global leader in display technology, is announcing its new gaming brand: “AGON”. All future AOC 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, previously grouped together with other products, 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 (????), which refers to “a struggle or contest”. The name is also intended to be an acrostic that represents AOC’s vision for AGON.

AOC’s Commitment to Gaming
AOC has always focused on product development, but has also played an active role in the growing eSports industry through strategic partnerships with teams and event organizers.

Most notably among AOC’s various partnered teams is Eastern European eSports club NatusVincere (Na’Vi), who have won countless international tournaments across six majoreSports games, including the popular Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. In 2015 tournaments alone, the team has reported over US$ 970,000 in total prize earnings.

AOC has also partnered with European ESL tournament organizers, as well as been the main organizer of two Southeast Asian AOC Masters Championship (AMC) Dota 2 tournaments. Part of AOC’s partnerships involve directly supplying monitors, including the Na’Vi-endorsed AOC G2460PQU 144Hz gaming monitor, for gamers to use in professional competition.

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 for faster hardware performance.There will also be unique gaming optimization features such as AOC Game Mode for users to choose between game modes (e.g. FPS, RTS, etc.). Users will be able to conveniently shift through these game modes at the comfort of their seat via an AOC-developed remote control. Other optimization options include Shadow Control, DialPoint, Low Input Lag, and more.
