The Visionect System Board is the world’s most widely used e-paper driving system and a key building block of energy-efficient digital signs across the globe. Discover the many features of this core Visionect product, developed to bring life to the most demanding of signage deployments.
The 32-inch color electronic paper display from E Ink® has won the prestigious 2017 Taiwan Excellence Gold Award. An engineering feat, color electronic ink is a herald of a new phase in the evolution of ultra-low power digital signs, enabling a host of applications impossible before.
We chatted with Barrett Comiskey, one of the fathers of electronic ink, about the beginnings of the technology and what the future holds for the energy-saving display. Along with JD Albert and Joseph Jacobson, his co-inventors, Comiskey has just been inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Alexander Graham Bell and Steve Jobs.
Visionect and E Ink® have launched a new system for creating large e-paper signs: a development kit for designing 32’’ digital signage solutions, supporting the largest single electronic paper module in production and enabling the quickest way to a production-ready sign.
Electronic shelf labels are a key component of the future of offline retail. Supporting real-time analytics of shopping behavior, they open the door to next generation services and convert visitors to customers – a fact that Telekom Slovenije is more than aware of.
Did you know? Electronic paper displays can be easily interconnected into bigger screen formats to attain the perfect digital sign for any deployment scenario, be it in traffic, hospitality, retail or elsewhere.
Why will an e-paper screen sometimes blink when updating content? Flickering is a consequence of how eink technology works, but can be avoided by choosing the right screen update or by turning to ever better displays on the market.
Deploying an electronic paper sign now takes up to 10 times less server memory than before, making displaying content on an e-sign more efficient and burdening the system less.
We continue our series on the how and why of electronic paper by turning from its history, technology and development to that most coveted of e-ink signage: electronic paper displays capable of showing color.
At the very top of the list of things to think about when developing a digital sign from an electronic paper display is the question of how content is uploaded to the sign and how it is managed. Is it different than in the usual LCD-based digital signs or LED notifications?
