E Ink Announces New 42 Inch E-Paper Display
E-Ink is getting serious about digital signage and they have just announced a new 42 inch e-paper display that is targeting specific segments
of the market, such as public information, retail and transportation.
The new 42 inch panel is running E-Ink Pearl and has a resolution of 2160 X 2880 and 85 DPI. It has a 4:3 aspect ratio and is identical to
that of real paper, making information just as easy to digest as if it were written on regular paper. The display will maintain a consistent charge
via solar power, so battery life should be indefinite. The exact measurements are 658.6mm (H) x 884.3mm (V) x 1.64mm (D).
“E Ink continues to deliver innovative products to meet the needs of the digital signage market,” said Harit Doshi, head of Signage Business
at E Ink. “The world’s largest ePaper display, which was developed based on customer feedback, will enable E Ink to bring low power signage
solutions in large form factors that can truly replace static displays.”
