E Ink to Showcase New Writing Technology

“E Ink”, the leading innovator of electronic ink technology, today showcased its latest digital paper writing innovations at Connected Ink 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.

During the conference, E Ink will unveil one of its latest writing technology platforms, JustWrite™ film, which delivers a natural writing experience without the use of a TFT backplane.

Exhibiting almost no latency in pen writing, this technology closely resembles writing on paper, natural surfaces or marker boards.

The film can be produced via roll to roll manufacturing typical of E Ink’s electronic paper, and requires only a writing stylus and simple electronics to enable functionality.

The simplicity of this technology enables any surface, small to large, to be digital writing enabled.

Key Features:
  • Digitizer Compatible (Optional)
  • Extremely Low Power
  • Durable
  • Reflective display without a backlight
  • Bendable and conformable
  • Any shape (including with holes)
  • Any size up to 3’ width
  • Natural writing experience with good contrast
  • Variety of writing styles
  • Pen / Pencil
  • Brush
  • Marker
  • Stamps

The JustWrite film features one of E Ink’s proprietary electronic inks and offers similar benefits as E Ink’s other product lines: a paper-like experience with a good contrast and reflective display without a backlight.

The JustWrite film is an all plastic display, making it extremely durable and lightweight, with the ability to be affixed and removed easily, enabling writing surfaces in a variety of locations.

Visitors to Connected Ink 2018 can learn more about this technology on November 30 during the Breakout Session 2 on Leading Edge Technology.
