E Ink Launches E Ink Spectra™ 6, a Revolutionary New Color ePaper for Paper Sign Replacement

Previously unseen color saturation and vividness for reflective displays

April 6, 2023—Billerica, Mass.—E Ink (8069.TWO), the originator, pioneer, and global commercial leader in ePaper technology, today announced the launch of E Ink Spectra 6, a revolutionary new color product geared for in-store advertising, indoor signage or any paper sign replacement. E Ink Spectra 6 is a full color product, providing a level of color saturation and vividness never before seen in a reflective display and with the ability to give a visual performance similar to the most advanced paper color printers on the market today.

E Ink Spectra 6 builds upon the prior generations of the Spectra platform and has been engineered to provide a truly print quality replacement for any paper sign, including POP displays, signage and posters and other in-store advertising. E Ink Spectra 6 features an enhanced color spectrum and an advanced color imaging algorithm to provide full color to improve marketing and advertising performance.

E Ink Spectra 6 will be optimized for up to 200 pixels per inch (PPI), depending on panel size, a typical contrast ratio of 30:1 and an operating range of 0-50 degrees Celsius. E Ink Spectra 6 will be offered in a variety of display sizes, allowing customers to choose a suitable size for different application scenarios. E Ink Spectra 6 can also create a partial image flashing effect, E Ink Sparkle™, which enhances the effect of advertising messages through motion, and helps advertisers achieve better results for their product promotions. E Ink Spectra 6 display modules are planned for release in 2024. E Ink will be showcasing Spectra 6 in Touch Taiwan from April 19-21, 2022, in E Ink’s booth, #M901 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, and during Display Week from May 23-25 in E Ink’s booth #807 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

"We are very excited to announce this revolutionary new color platform, E Ink Spectra 6,” said Johnson Lee, CEO of E Ink. “Spectra 6 represents years of continuing research and development to improve our technology and will bring the power of full, vivid color to advertising installations, while maintaining E Ink’s signature low-power features that allow our customers to meet their sustainability goals."

Digital transformation has driven retailers to accelerate the adoption of digital signage. E Ink reviewed the CO2 emissions effects of using paper versus LCD screens versus ePaper displays. In using a model of 10-inch displays, with 30 million of the tags deployed, an E Ink ePaper display is approximately 12,000 times more efficient in terms of kilograms of CO2 emission than LCD screens, and approximately 60,000 times more efficient in terms of kilograms of CO2 emission than using paper. In short, using low-power E Ink displays can enable retailers and advertisers the ability to reach their sustainability goals, while still providing timely updates seamlessly.
