TAIWAN: Delta Electronics Inc., a provider of energy saving solutions, recently  showcased a range of color electronic paper (e-paper) applications at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.


The new color e-paper applications are jointly developed by Delta Electronics and Bridgestone Corporation and are based on the latter’s Quick Response Liquid Powder Display (QR-LPD) technologies, said a press release.

The full series includes a 4.1-inch e-tag, 8.2-inch and 13.1-inch e-readers, and a 21-inch e-signage display. The 8.2-inch e-reader will be distributed in the Greater China region by Vivitek Corporation, Delta’s global strategic partner, and it is expected to become the world’s first mass-produced China-focused color QR-LPD e-reader.

Jeff Fu, general manager, Delta Electronics’ Display Solutions Business Unit, said, “There was a great deal of synergy between Bridgestone and Delta during the joint development of e-paper applications using the AeroBee products. In the strategic partnership Delta’s focus is on downstream development such as product design, software and hardware integration, as well as the development of various applications for the consumer electronics and the business-professional markets.”


He added that the joint-development between Bridgestone and Delta has significantly shortened the time-to-market for e-paper products and solutions, which is certain to create a lot of momentum for a variety of color e-paper applications.

The color QR-LPD e-reader, which is set for release in China, will be announced at Vivitek’s booth during the upcoming CES. With an 8.2-inch Bridgestone AeroBee panel and weighing just 400 grams, the e-reader features rich color, smooth handwriting recognition, and supports wireless connectivity for improved reading comfort, providing users with the best possible digital reading experience.

Delta’s full range of color e-paper applications are designed with the concept of “Go Beyond Reading,” which combines wireless connectivity and cloud information management systems to provide on-demand, real-time information delivery to users.

The e-signage solution’s wireless cloud connectivity will provide intelligent interactive displays for an optimized user experience. The energy-efficient signage products are intended for professional fields such as education, logistics, sales, outdoor advertising, and many others. E-paper applications are all supported with an integrated ecosystem to maximize business efficiency for Delta’s customers, the release added.
