Samsung shows video-capable e-paper display

Samsung video e-paper

At the SID Display Week show in Korea, Samsung's LCD unit is showing off a 10.2-inch prototype display that combines LCD video display and e-paper technologies and allows users to switch between the modes. The active matrix panel uses a cholestoric liquid crystal arrangement, which means they are arranged in a series of layers that are slightly rotated. This design is what enables the display mode to operate in memory mode like conventional e-paper displays or else switch to a dynamic mode to display video.

The resolution for the panel is modest at 320x240 pixels, and brings with it just 64 colors. Samsung claims the prototype nonetheless reflects no more than 10 percent of its image and a response time of 25ms or less. As the technology is developed over time, these specs are expected to improve significantly; it's not certain if or when the current example could reach a finished product. [via Tech-On]

    I'm glad to see companies investing in the epaper technology. Epaper will dramatically reduce power consumption and, if the refresh rate is increased, will be ideal for use in laptops.
