Liquavista is showing off a new, low-power 6" e-paper technology with full color and video support at CES. The first products based on this technology are expected throughout 2010/2011.
“The market for eReaders is set to be revolutionised by the availability of high performance color displays for the very first time.” Stated Guy Demuynck, Liquavista’s CEO. “We believe our new display technology, LiquavistaColor will mean that fully interactive color devices will now become available to consumers with all the advantages of true mobility. This underlines the tremendous potential of Liquavista technology and its promise to revolutionise mobile consumer products”.
“Users will now get to see the true power of magazine quality performance in fully interactive mobile devices” added Nigel Litchfield, Chairman of Liquavista “LiquavistaColor brings full-color sunlight readable screens which can bring significantly enhanced usability and interactivity. Consumers can now read not only books but also enjoy magazines or newspapers as well as browsing photos, video clips and enjoy social networking. It transforms devices with just a basic reading function into full-feature low-powered multi-media devices that are usable in all environments.”
LiquavistaColor demonstrates the natural evolution from the LiquavistaBright technology platform, unveiled only 3 months ago, combining color filter technology with our unique high efficiency optical models and the most advanced algorithms for improved color management. All the features and benefits of the existing LiquavistaBright platform can be found in LiquavistaColor but now with the benefit of full color capability. This technology is the perfect solution for a full range of low-cost sunlight readable handheld devices: not only reading books, news feeds or newspapers but also browsing photos and video clips, as well as the ability to fully enjoy the complete range of online services.
Liquavista’s electrowetting display technology has been developed to be compatible with existing display manufacturing techniques and processes. In fact, more than 90% of the manufacturing cycle use standard LCD manufacturing equipment and processes. Called LCD 2.0, this enables our partners to quickly re-use their manufacturing assets to our displays and bring exciting, highly differentiated products to life with both enhanced usability and performance.
Liquavista are developing three technology platforms, LiquavistaBright™, LiquavistaColor™ and LiquavistaVivid™) planned for product implementation throughout 2010/2011.
