The new development kit supports the largest single module epaper display available from E Ink, and is integrated with Visionect’s software and hardware platform, developed specifically for large-scale epaper deployments. At 32”, the displays are approximately 25X the size of an eReader. The new kit joins Visionect’s existing family of epaper development products which support product development for display products ranging from 6” to 13”.The energy efficiency and robustness of epaper signage makes it an excellent solution for displaying clear, crisp information under all lighting conditions, both indoors and outdoors. This is particularly true where power consumption and infrastructure costs are a very important consideration. For example, in such applications as way-finding, advertising and passenger information solutions, to name a few.
The 32’’ development kit is available in gray-scale (supporting a resolution of 2560 X 1440 pixels and 16 level gray-scale) and color (supporting a resolution of 1280 X 720 pixels and a RGBW color scheme). Both kits support the driving an LED based front light option with an integrated ambient light sensor. The color version retails for $6,000 USD and the gray-scale for $5,000 USD.
