E Ink Spectra 3100 enters the transportation and retail markets
E Ink (Billerica, Massachusetts), a pioneer and global commercial leader in digital paper technology, recently announced that it has partnered with TPV Technology, the world's leading manufacturer of PC monitors and LCD TVs, to bring the first 25.3 inch E Ink Spectra 3100 display to the transportation and smart retail markets. In April 2021, the two companies launched a 7.3-inch eTable sign with E Ink Spectra 3100 technology and have now expanded their partnership with the 25.3-inch four-colour ePaper signage.
The 25.3-inch colour ePaper display features the four-colour ePaper technology, E Ink Spectra 3100, with black, white, red, and yellow pigments. It can display eye-catching and vivid images and information with high contrast and high saturation colour combinations. When used as transportation signage for railways and buses, it can display alerts and reminders, schedules and changes or other notifications for travel. And when applied in the retail field, it can be used as Point-of-Purchase signage to promotion product information, with vivid reds and yellows to attract consumers' attention. These applications allow transportation authorities and retailers to replace their single-use paper printed posters with dynamic displays that feature ultra-low power consumption for an environmentally friendly product that can help them meet their sustainability efforts.
"We are pleased to work more closely with TPV Technology and to bring E Ink Spectra 3100 colour ePaper into large sizes. Spectra has traditionally been used in shelf labels; through this effort we can now bring our four-colour ePaper into the smart transportation field," said the CEO of E Ink Holdings, Johnson Lee. “As governments and companies around the world look to reduce their carbon emissions, E Ink has worked with ecosystem partners to create ePaper signage with ultra-low power consumption, to help our customers reach their goals of Net Zero Carbon Emissions.”
Lin Chun-Fu, VP of TPV Technology Group, said: "TPV Technology and E Ink have already successively developed black and white 31.2-inch and 42-inch ePaper signage. The new 25.3-inch ePaper display is designed to have four colours. Images can be presented in bright and eye-catching colours, including black, white, red, and yellow, which are more suitable for use in digital signage to attract consumers' attention. TPV has customers based in retail, advertising, railway, commercial displays, and other applications, and we hope to substantially expand the market through our partnership.”
With E Ink providing the E Ink Spectra 3100 four-colour ePaper module and TPV Technology using its leading capabilities in display product design and manufacturing, the two companies are excited to launch this new product, which has been piloted by system integrators such as CREA Co., Ltd from Japan, and Ledatel Group from Poland. Future applications include railway transportation, advertising billboards and retail stores. The two companies will continue to explore applications for colour ePaper signage and to help promote sustainable development with smart ePaper products that save power and reduce carbon emissions.
