Characteristics & Benefits of E Ink E-Paper Displays

E Ink's epaper technology has enabled ereaders for 20 years with unique characteristics that also make it ideal for public signage applications.

  • •   Bistable, so the image remains even with no power.
  • •   Sunlight readable, like paper.
  • •   Wide Viewing Angles, like paper.
  • •   Dark Sky compliant.
  • •   Lightweight and Thin, typically lighter and thinner than traditional LCD or LED screens.

Sunlight Readable

The E Ink epaper display technology, like paper, relies on reflected light. Like paper posters it is highly readable in daylight, and like paper it doesn't rely on power to be readable in sunlight.

Ultra Low Power

This is the other aspect where epaper based displays really excel. The display itself consumes zero power to hold an image so it is only the other electronics that consumes power. With suitable system it is easy top have a display system that operates completely independently with solar and/or wind power together with a rechargeable battery.

The very low power requirement means there are a number of power options:

  • •   AC to DC power (if available)
  • •   Solar &/or wind power with a rechargeable battery
  • •   POE (Power over Ethernet)

Dark Sky Compliant

E Ink displays do not emit light which makes them ideally suited to dark sky environments. They can be read with minimal ambient light or a sky shielded downlighter. For more information about the Dark Sky initiative see darksky.org
