Proudly introducing a new GDS and E Ink® Partnership: E Ink® is the company that developed and successfully commercialized the electrophoretic technology behind the E-Reader market, that has its key characteristic in the extremely low-power consumption.
Strongly believing in eco-sustainability and the potential applications for this technology, GDS entered into a Joint Development Agreement with E Ink®; the E Ink® Partnership aimed to translate the capabilities of E Ink® technology into effective large format displays. The result is “e-Tela” product family: targeted for both indoor and outdoor use, it is especially effective outdoors, since its primary source of operation is reflected ambient light.
E Ink® chose GDS as strategic partner because of its proven deployment of TFT’s outdoors without the need for air conditioning units. GDS is now introducing to the industry its e-Tela large format displays range, designed to offer a large number of key benefits, including sunlight readability, ultra-low power consumption and thin, lightweight form factors, suitable for harsh outdoor environments such as those found in: transportation, retail, road sign and other DOOH applications.
Today, the relationship is extended in a joint E Ink® Partnership, covering both sales and marketing aspects, for the deployment of the e-Paper displays in the digital signage market.
