The thirty-two-inch displays are great examples of E Ink’s innovation in the research, design, and manufacturing of ePaper displays. The display has a resolution of 2560x1440, measures 27.75-by-15.75 inches at 94-dpi.
Having the same ultra-low power properties as all E Ink displays, along with being lightweight and readable in all light conditions, the new module enables the deployment of digital signs in areas that were not possible using standard emissive displays.
The new module was developed in cooperation with Global Display Solutions (GDS), a world leader in the deployment of green display technologies for outdoor and indoor digital signage applications. GDS developed the enclosure technology for the display to be deployed in outdoor conditions with very low power consumption. GDS is a sales and marketing partner in the deployment of the ePaper displays for the digital signage market and will jointly market the product with E Ink.
“Using E Ink technology, we were able to design an outdoor display that is only a few millimeters in thickness with very low power consumption and without fan noise. We believe this product can replace existing LCD and LED displays for many applications in the digital signage market as well as open up new markets that are looking for green display technology,” said Andrea Ongaro, CTO for GDS. “The E Ink thirty-two-inch electronic paper display has a large enough active area to address a large part of these markets as a single unit. It can also be seamlessly tiled together to create a much larger display system.”
“E Ink’s partnership with GDS resulted in this unique ePaper display, which is ideally suited for signage applications,” said Harit Doshi, head of Signage Business at E Ink. “This module is one of the first milestones in bringing state-of-the-art, low power and sunlight readable products to the market.”
“E Ink has had significant focus on diversifying its presence in the display market,” said Giovanni Mancini, head of Global Marketing at E Ink. “Digital signage is one of those focus areas. The new large-sized display meets the needs for display applications in areas such as menu boards, transportation displays and information kiosks and we believe this will be a big growth area for E Ink Holdings.”
Examples of the first-to-market thirty-two-inch black-and-white and color displays B&W will be exhibited at the E Ink booth during SID Display Week in San Diego, June 3-5, and during Computex in Taipei, June 3-7.
