Founded in 1997 based on research started at the MIT Media Lab, E Ink Corporation is the leading provider of electronic paper display (EPD) technologies. Products made with E Ink's revolutionary electronic ink possess a paper-like high contrast appearance, ultra-low power consumption and a thin, light form. E Ink's technology is ideal for many consumer and industrial applications spanning handheld devices, watches, clocks and public information and promotional signs. Future technology developments will enable many new applications through ultra-thin, lightweight, rugged, flexible, full color displays.
E Ink has commercialized many different forms of "Electronic Paper" solutions over the past seven years. In April 2004, E Ink launched an active-matrix display product with SONY in Japan based on our unique electronic display material which SONY values for its brightness, high contrast, and low power - just like paper. Recent press announcements with Seiko (watches), Casio (clocks), Vossloh (transportation signage) and NeoLux (retail signage) illustrate the increasing demand for commercialization of E Ink's electronic ink technology.
