Mokoto Omodani, Faculty Director of Tokai University presents a paper entitled, “Concept of e-Tile and its Prototyping” at the DisplayWeek event, the largest gathering of display professionals.

“e‐Tile” is a novel concept for large area displays, is introduced. A typical e‐Tile configuration, in which 100 pixels are mounted on a 100 mm square board, is designed and prototyped. One promising application is the unobtrusive information board, which is far less annoying than the conventional vivid LED/LCD in public spaces.

The expectations for Electronic Paper can be summarized as flexibility, readability, and multi‐functionality with the goal of readability. Paper‐like readability should be accepted as the most important target of Electronic Paper, when we consider that no existing electronic display is as comfortable to read as paper.
