Business Uses of Colour E-Paper

Samsung Colour E-Paper (EMDX model), the company’s ultra low power display, will make its debut at InfoComm. This groundbreaking full-color e-paper signage seamlessly combines digital ink with cutting-edge technology, making it a viable alternative to analogue or paper promotional materials.

With its high visibility signs, the innovative solution provides businesses with an eco-friendly substitute for conventional promotional methods. Compared to standard digital signs, the Samsung Colour E-Paper uses substantially less electricity when changing images, operating at 0.00W when showing a static image. The Colour E-Paper may also be remotely controlled by managers, who can create schedules with automated wake-up and sleep hours to save energy.

Red, yellow, green, blue, white, and black are the six colours per pixel on the 32-inch screen, which has a 60,000-color gamut and QHD (2,560 x 1,440) resolution. Due to its small weight of 2.9kg and wide 17.9mm, it may be put without the need for additional mounts in a variety of places, including tables, ceilings, and walls.

In order to facilitate the creation of content for various verticals, the VXT CMS Canvas also provides a range of templates that are tailored for E-paper displays.

Two USB-C type connectors, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, and data transfer are all supported by the Colour E-Paper. Together with 8GB of flash memory, a VESA standard wall mount compatibility, and a replaceable bezel that lets users customise the frame’s colour, these features provide consumers improved connectivity, a wider range of customisation choices, and versatile mounting possibilities.

In-store advertising, indoor signage, and the replacement of paper posters are among the applications for which the Colour E-Paper panel makes use of the cutting-edge E Ink Spectra 6 technology. Improved marketing and advertising performance is achieved through the use of an upgraded colour imaging algorithm and an increased colour spectrum.

According to Dr. FY Gan, President of E Ink Holdings, “We’re excited to announce our partnership with Samsung to unveil the innovative 32-inch E Ink Spectra 6 for the signage market.” Samsung dedication to a better future with display solutions is demonstrated by our collaboration.
