CLEARink To Showcase ePaper 2.0 At DisplayWeek 2019



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Company Inks $300M In Business for Various Tablet Devices

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CLEARink Displays, the leader in next generation electronic paper
displays, will demonstrate state-of-the-art ePaper 2.0 reflective
displays at the Society for Information Display (SID)’s DisplayWeek
2019. The company further announced that it has signed MOU/LOI for over
$300M worth of business from four leading tablet makers.

Last month, Bill and Melinda Gates said, “Textbooks
are becoming obsolete
,” and we agree. Traditional textbooks are
often obsolete by the time they reach the students, they result in tens
of millions of trees being cut and pollute our 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.

“We recently completed a detailed study of the market potential for
reflective displays and concluded that the demand in applications such
as Tablets, Wearables, IoT, Automotive and Signage during the next five
years, will be in the tens of billions of dollars globally,” said Bob
O’Brien, President of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC). “A cost
effective reflective display that reduces eye strain, offers low power,
sunlight readability with color and Internet browsing capability is
sought by customers in these market segments.”

CLEARink’s demos at SID’s DisplayWeek 2019, will showcase industry best
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 $300M in business,
continued to trial manufacture in depreciated LCD factories and are
building an eco-system,” said 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.”
