E Ink® Holdings Inc. (Hsinchu, Taiwan and Cambridge, MA), a leader in electronic-paper display technology, has released E Ink Triton, its next-generation display technology. Triton enables color e-paper solutions, which enhances the visual experience for e-publishing markets.
“Color ePaper will enable richer content in eBooks, as well as enabling a broader array of other reading devices, for content such as magazines, newspapers, and educational materials,” according to Paul Semenza, Senior Vice President, DisplaySearch. “We foresee market demand for ePaper displays in these applications reaching $5 billion by 2016.”

For image-rich information applications that show charts, graphs, maps, photos, comics and advertising, color displays made with Triton Imaging Film can enable low-power and high-mobility devices with a paper-like experience. In addition to 16 levels of grayscale, Triton can display thousands of colors. Detailed color graphics are fully viewable in direct sunlight, the company reports.
Triton-enabled displays can perform up to 20% faster than those made with previous generations of e-ink-imaging film, whether turning a page, selecting a menu, taking notes or viewing simple animations. This expands the e-paper experience and displays more dynamic content for signage or advertising.
The E Ink Triton design leverages the patented, two-pigment capsule platform (bi-stable technology) found in e-ink-enabled e-books. Pictures and text can be maintained on the screen even when the power is turned off.
Founded in 1992 by Taiwan’s leading papermaking and printing group YFY, E Ink Holdings Inc. (Hsinchu, Taiwan) is the pioneer TFT and e-paper business in Taiwan. It has continuously invested in e-paper display technology, and, in 2008, it acquired Hydis Technologies, manufacturer of wide-viewing angle LCDs and, in 2009, E Ink Corp., the leader in e-paper. E Ink is now the world’s largest supplier of displays to the -book market.
