Yihan Li, Taipei; Willis Ke, DIGITIMES

An e-paper digital signage developed by Taiwan's E Ink Holdings (EIH) in cooperation with domestic partners has been adopted by the Taipei City Government, which has installed it at a road intersection of the city since September 1.

The signange features an e-paper panel designed by EIH, a mechanical base developed by Green Ideas Technology and a parking app offered by Space4car. It adopts a bistable state technology that can significantly save on power consumption, requiring only 0.8% of power consumed by an LCD equivalent.

The e-paper digital signage is powered by battery, and is easy to install and remove, unlike traditional LCD displays that require a power supply company to help with power transmission engineering at much higher cost.

Such boards can be applied to offer dynamic displays at parking lots, constant information updates at public buses and guided tours at tourist attractions, EIH said.
