Large Flexible Displays

UK company debuts first display of its kind

Large Flexible Displays

Plastic Logic has publicly shown its flexible electrophoretic display. It is the first time that a flexible, reflective digital signage module larger than 40" and using organic thin-film transistors has been publicly shown. The display was presented in partnership with Toppan Printing, at RetailTech Japan.

The display consists of 16 10.7" monochrome flexible plastic displays, which have been tiled together in a 4x4 configuration to create a 42" display with an effective pixel pitch of 0.7 mm. This resolution is approximately six times higher than existing EPD signage making it particularly suitable for applications with close viewing distances.

Being less than 3mm thick and very lightweight, it can be hung on a wall like a poster. It enables a wide range of new and improved applications, such as informational signage in public facilities, which can be quickly updated to provide disaster-related information in an emergency situation where battery-operation is required, due to its ultra-low power consumption.

Jin Endo, Head of Business Development Center at Toppan Printing Co. commented: "We are delighted to cooperate with Plastic Logic to open new frontiers with regard to large-area flexible EPD. This new signage solution offers all the benefits of current EPD signage, including ultra-low power consumption, which is crucial for disaster-ready applications in the post-earthquake society of Japan, but with the additional advantage of a much higher resolution and a considerably lower module weight."
