Traditional textbooks are often obsolete by the time they reach the students, they result in tens of millions of trees being cut and pollute waterways. Traditional tablets and laptops are an eye health concern, particularly in Asia where myopia rates among students in China, Singapore and Korea, have risen to over 90%. CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 displays are intended as a solution for this exact problem.
ePaper 2.0 displays are reflective, sunlight readable, easy on the eyes, do not emit blue light, consume very little power allowing users to work for days on a single battery charge, and build on the previous generations of various ePaper by offering color to convey more information and video for internet access and multimedia learning.
CLEARink’s demos at SID’s DisplayWeek 2019, will showcase 9.7” reflective displays with front light, 1:16 contrast ratio, 4096 colors, 19.5% NTSC color gamut, 3V/1V drive/hold voltages in a 227 dpi display playing nearly 30 frames/sec video.
“We have developed state-of-the-art reflective displays for tablet and other applications, secured customer commitments for $300 million in business, continued to trial manufacture in depreciated LCD factories and are building an eco-system.” Frank Christiaens, chairman and CEO of CLEARink Displays. “We are pioneering a brand new display technology that can solve real problems in multiple industries, globally.”
