ChinaJoy for gamers as latest technology on display

The ongoing ChinaJoy games conference presents innovations such as eSports monitors with record high refresh rates, AI optimization for broadcasting and linear motors with lively and vibration effects.

BOE, China’s largest display manufacturer, is showcasing its latest eSports display technologies and products.

At the Huya booth, BOE has a prototype monitor model with a record high refresh rate of 480 Hz compared to typically up to 120 Hz or 144 Hz.

eSports display is an important growth engine for the world market. For gamers, different update rates mean different “win or lose” results, said Si Da, vice president of BOE.

BOE has launched products in new technologies such as higher frame rates, high image quality, custom configuration, and environmental and health functions. BOE offers products for eye protection, for example, as eSports players often look at screens for more than 10 hours a day.

New games at the Huya booth, with professional eSports monitors and various AI and broadcasting innovations.

Huya, China’s broadcasting platform with more than 75 million active users per month, showed technologies and innovations in games, broadcasting and artificial intelligence.

These include the optimization for broadcasting based on artificial intelligence, the cloud game platform YOWA and a new space game Roundary, which is being sold for the first time by Huya as the sole sales partner.

eSports content, broadcast technology and talent are “key triangles” for development, said Dong Rongjie, CEO of Huya.

Huya uses AI technologies to improve transmission quality, such as: B. Playback of game management, intelligent editing, virtual anchors, automatic beauty and content review functions.

It enables vloggers to offer “online ChinaJoy tours” in a simple manner, which makes sense in the event of tightened measures to prevent a COVID-19 infection.

New technology components such as sensors and motors were also presented, which offer an optimized gaming experience.

Companies like technology provider AAC and Tencent are developing industry standards for vibration effects used in gaming and digital entertainment. Devices like smartphones with AAC’s latest X-axis linear motor can add livelier vibration effects to games.

The demand for high-quality interaction and immersive experiences, including touch and vibration effects, is growing with the booming market for mobile games and esports, said Kelvin Pan, executive vice president of Hong Kong-listed AAC.

Components are used in various smart devices such as phones and VR models. However, one of the biggest challenges is the difficulty of being compatible with all devices.

Companies such as the camera giant Canon and the cinema technology company IMAX were represented at the games fair. It stands for the convergence between different industries.

ChinaJoy, which is held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in the Pudong New Area, will last until Monday.
