TPV Technology Limited (informally TPV) (Chinese: 冠捷科技; pinyin: Guànjié Kējí) is a Fortune China 500 multinational electronics manufacturing company headquartered in Hong Kong, China. It is the world’s largest manufacturer of computer monitors. TPV designs and produces a full range of CRT and TFT LCD monitors as well as LCD TVs for distribution globally.[4] It sells its products under its own AOC and Envision brands, and is also an original design manufacturer for other companies.[5]


In September 2005, TPV Technology acquired part of Philips' monitor and entry-level flat screen TV manufacturing business, making it the largest display manufacturer in the world.[6][7] In March 2008, TPV acquired a business operation from Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corporation.[8]

In June 2009 MMD (Multimedia Displays) as a wholly owned company of TPV was established through a brand license agreement with Philips, and its role is to exclusively market and sell Philips branded LCD monitors and displays worldwide. Three categories of Philips product lines are included under the agreement: the Business and Consumer Range of LCD monitors, Public Signage and Hotel/Hospitality TV.

In April 2011, TPV Technology and Philips agreed to form a Netherlands-based television manufacturing joint venture comprising all of Philips' television operations, and owned 70% by TPV Technology and 30% by Philips.[9] Creation of the joint venture, named TP Vision, was completed in April 2012.[10] In January 2014, TPV Technology announced an agreement with Philips to transfer the remaining 30% shares to TPV, which was completed in May 2014, making TP Vision a wholly owned subsidiary of TPV Technology.[11]


TPV Technology manufactures CRT monitors, LCD monitors and LCD TVs.[8] As of 2010, TPV had a total production capacity of 6.1 million monitors in a month. TPV has five factories in China, two in Brazil, one in Poland and one in Russia, and sells its products worldwide.[12]
