Sharp, the renowned Japanese electronics company, is set to unveil an exciting new lineup of color E-Ink products during their Sharp Technology Day event, scheduled from November 10-12. This event, taking place in Tokyo, will showcase Sharp's latest innovations in E-Ink technology, featuring their cutting-edge color e-posters. These new products, which include the IGZO technology, represent a blend of cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness, highlighting Sharp's commitment to sustainable technology.
The highlight of the event is the introduction of a color e-poster, sized A2, utilizing both E Ink Spectra technology and IGZO backplane technology. This innovative combination allows the e-poster to deliver vibrant colors and high-contrast quality, comparable to premium color printing paper. Significantly, this model marks the industry's first color e-paper billboard, boasting a sleek design and zero power consumption in standby mode.
A revolution in e-Book Reader technology!
In addition to the ePoster, Sharp's product lineup will also include an 8-inch color e-paper display, designed for e-note devices and e-book readers. The utilization of Sharp's innovative Display Technology, IGZO, is drawing significant interest in the industry. E Ink and Sharp's collaboration, covering the development of a variety of e-paper signage, e-note devices, and e-readers, is a testament to this interest. The Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) backplane technology is a critical component in the manufacturing of these e-paper modules, ensuring high performance in e-readers and e-note gadgets.
Details on the full release and pricing information for these new Sharp E-Ink products have not yet been disclosed. However, further information and optics are expected during the product showcase at the Sharp Technology event at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center.
