E Ink® Holdings, "E Ink" (8069.TW), a digital signage and display visionary, today announced the largest single display ePaper module. The new module, measuring 32” diagonally, is almost 25X the size of the display in an eReader. The new display is targeted primarily at applications in the digital signage and information kiosk markets and is available in black and white and color modules.
The 32” displays are great examples of E Ink’s innovation in the research, design and manufacturing of ePaper displays. The display has a resolution of 2560 X 1440, measures 27.75” by 15.75”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 32” 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.”
