Description: 
Estonian SME has developed an e-paper based digital signage platform (6.8”, 9.7” and 32” displays) for permanently installed signage solutions, that features paper-like displays that blend into the background and reduce visual noise. The platform makes it possible to remotely configure and update the contents displayed on the signs while using very little energy. The system uses wired data connections and doesn’t have any batteries, which ensures that the EMI (electromagnetic interference) and heat dissipation as well as regular maintenance is kept at minimum. These properties make e-paper based digital signage attractive while reducing the total cost of ownership for applications that have used (frequently modified) printed signs or LCD panels previously. Additionally, it is possible to change the contents based on local triggers such as buttons and RFID radio-frequency identification card scans and the intrinsic properties of e-paper guarantee that the displayed image is preserved even after the loss of power. The main innovative solutions within this e-paper signage are in PoE (power over Ethernet) cable and touch buttons, the signs are battery-less and very low-maintenance. All signs are placed in a single network and can be controlled via a central content management system (CMS). The platform was originally designed for permanently installed multilingual exhibitions at museums, but it can be adapted to other use cases. For example, the platform could be used for direction signs, information boards, schedules and inventory lists that can be found in courthouses, medical centers, offices, libraries, hotels, bus stations etc. The company is looking for partners within different industries for technical cooperation or for creating the commercial agreement with the help of technical assistance by the company. Cooperation is sought with the partners that would integrate the provided e-paper digital signage platform into their products. The company can provide the e-paper displays together with the electronics, but it is also possible to provide additional engineering services in electronics design, software engineering or industrial design in order to create more suitable new product.
