Electronic paper displays are electronic visual display devices that mimic the look of ordinary ink on paper. Unlike LCD screens and LED displays, E-paper displays don’t require large amounts of power to maintain a static image on the screen. They use a technology called electrophoresis – with electrically charged ink that can be moved around using an electric field. This allows the E-paper to use very little power when displaying a static image, requiring power only when the image needs updating. Along with other advantageous features, electronic paper display solutions have gained growing popularity in recent years for a wide range of smart applications.
The Prevalence of E-paper Displays
Electronic paper display solutions have become extremely popular, and their adoption is rising exponentially. This huge growth in popularity is not surprising considering their many unique advantages over traditional displays. These include:
Low Power Consumption
E-paper displays only require power when the image is updated on the screen, but not for maintaining a static image. This makes them highly energy efficient and suitable for eco-conscious businesses.
Just like normal paper, text and graphics displayed on an electronic paper display can be clearly seen even in direct sunlight without glare or reflections. This makes them very easy to read outdoors.
Wide Viewing Angle
E-ink displays deliver consistent image quality that doesn’t distort or fade when viewed from wide angles, left to right, or up and down. The image remains clear from almost all viewing positions.
Reduced Eye Strain
Unlike LED or LCD screens, the E-ink display is less strenuous on the eyes as it emits no harsh blue light. The paper-like display is similar to print material and causes minimal eye fatigue, especially during prolonged reading sessions.
Top 6 Applications of E-paper Display
With their distinctive above-mentioned characteristics, E-paper displays are suitable for a wide range of smart applications. Some of their most common uses today include:
E-paper displays are proving beneficial in digital signage solutions for smart offices like employee ID badges that can store and display personal info and access credentials electronically without power consumption. Meeting room labels powered by E-paper help book meeting rooms efficiently while alerting about room capacity. Electronic whiteboards for collaborative workflow allow tagging documents and taking notes together while being energy efficient.
Interactive E-ink displays are enhancing digital learning with applications such as e-notebooks that support digital note-taking and storing lesson content with minimal eye strain. Classroom signage displays important notices seamlessly. Interactive whiteboards with E-paper technology enable new collaborative teaching methods while being eco-friendly.
Electronic shelf labels powered by electronic paper display technology allow hyperlocal, real-time pricing updates on shelves from a central control system. This helps retail outlets change prices dynamically based on time, location, inventory, and campaigns to drive more sales through engaging product displays.
Bedside E-paper labels provide care teams access to correct patient information right at the bedside for privacy and accuracy. Doctor room signs display schedules, alerts, and contact info seamlessly. Applications such as E-workbooks can also be used to store and share medical records electronically, which reduces menial paperwork.
Applications like electronic bus schedules and maps at stations utilize E-paper display technology with battery backup to assist commuters in easily finding routes and timing without wasting energy on outdoor signage.
Large format E-paper signage for wayfinding and announcements is replacing wasteful traditional displays with its paper-like experience at malls, airports, and public venues while being energy efficient.
