Sorry, I clicked on the wrong link for the video. The other one works.
The spec sheet and brochure still display the 404 Not Found.

thanks for the video - well, looks a competitor for newspaper, not for LCD, but iven if quality is not great, it would be good enough for me IF the price were right. But is suspect that the first devices to sport colour would go for much more than I am prepared to fork out

As always ya got the good stuff!! Interesting video, colors are likely too muted for me, but for magazines, newspapers and such that looks useable. It does seem that the background is more gray than the current Pearl panels or even the Vizplex panels. Of course if we all have learned nothing else over the years, until we see them side by side you never know for sure form the photos and vids...where is our buddy Charbax when we need him!! hehehehe...

I am not sold on using the RGB filters they would seem to not offer the dynamic range or color saturation simply due to the design. Sure you can make every color from these RGB filters but the lack of any sort of bright white it is going to be hard to not have gaps in the color palette the panel can display.

Still it is a very nice start...hmmmm....maybe it's time to bring back using radium only time time as a light source? I mean what's a little radiation among friends?

To compare the spec sheets of Triton and Pearl:
http://www.eink.com/sell_sheets/trit...ll%20sheet.pdf
http://www.eink.com/sell_sheets/pear...ll%20sheet.pdf

The contrast has not suffered from the transition to color, which is good news.
Unfortunately, the update time for color images seems slow.

Good details...I like they offer the contrast ratios as minimums rather than under the best possible lighting for the panel. That certainly makes the panels much more attractive despite only 4-bit color with palette of 4096 colors.

After looking at the video earlier, where, if ya didn't notice, they didn't show any page changes. Still given the sliding filter design to produce their colors I was expecting pretty slow page turns on anything with a fair amount of color. One thing to remember is most page turns are likely to be toward the quicker end of the range as most pages won't have more than about a 5%-10% color coverage, save for magazines where the turns would likely be much slower than most readers will be willing to live with, especially for the $400+ color devices will command at release.

I wonder if it's simply a matter of taking an existing reader, swapping out the controller card and plopping in the new color panel. Do we know where readers perform the color processing? Is it just a matter of sending the color data to the controller card which then does all the processing and cell management? If so, then I would also think there might not be too much overhead for the device makers in producing the color readers themselves. Even the controller card will be part of the panel package. I hope they were a bit forward thinking in the original design to allow for a simple swap of a couple components rather than needing a whole redesigned system board and BIOS.
