HSINCHU, Taiwan, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- AU Optronics Corp ( " AUO " or the " Company " ) (TAIEX: 2409; NYSE: AUO), a leading global display and solar solutions provider, announced today that its solar business will use "BenQ Solar" as its new brand name from now on, as authorized by BenQ Corporation.
