New writing technology film

E Ink Holdings, an innovator of electronic ink technology, has showcased its latest digital paper writing innovations in Tokyo, Japan. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Conductive Ink Markets 2018-2028
One of its latest writing technology platforms, JustWrite™ film, delivers a natural writing experience without the use of a TFT backplane. Exhibiting almost no latency in pen writing, this technology closely resembles writing on paper, natural surfaces or marker boards. The film can be produced via roll to roll manufacturing typical of E Ink's electronic paper, and requires only a writing stylus and simple electronics to enable functionality. The simplicity of this technology enables any surface, small to large, to be digital writing enabled.
Key Features:
  • Digitizer Compatible (Optional)
  • Extremely Low Power
  • Durable
  • Reflective display without a backlight
  • Bendable and conformable
  • Any shape (including with holes)
  • Any size up to 3' width
  • Natural writing experience with good contrast
  • Variety of writing styles - Pen / Pencil, Brush, Marker, Stamps
The JustWrite film features one of E Ink's proprietary electronic inks and offers similar benefits as E Ink's other product lines: a paper-like experience with a good contrast and reflective display without a backlight. The JustWrite film is an all plastic display, making it extremely durable and lightweight, with the ability to be affixed and removed easily, enabling writing surfaces in a variety of locations.
