Thank you. The fact that it is not obvious whether there is front light or not is rather impressive. Would be interesting to put an unlit eink next to it to show the difference.

That's odd. The contrast ratio for the B/W version is the same as for the colour version. I don't think that can be right. It ought to be higher. I wonder if their 'greyscale' display is just their colour display being driven as greyscale.

(I'd have expected the B&W version to be 454ppi and better than 1:20 contrast ratio.)

Just confirmed:

That is correct, they were showing black and white content on color display.

Yes, I mis-typed. Thanks for catching my error. Now corrected.

Damn, that actually looks promising. It's no OLED display and the animations seem a little laggy, but man it would be great for textbooks and PDF documents.

How soon this catches on will depend on price. If Amazon and other ereader manufacturers can sell <$300 ClearInk devices, it will become mainstream. Otherwise it will remain a niche technology.

That should be a defining effect of this new implementation of electrophoresis. It did make me curious.

One quick check reveals a comparable tft-ips-lcd panel (say ~10',' 1920px wide) being sold by producers at around 50$ to 100$, and the ES103TC1 from E-Ink - the 10.3'' 1404x1872 one - at 350$. So, I could place an ignorant, non-committal bet at 150$ to 200$.

Think if they sell it at a cheaper price with a firmware that let it display just grayscale..

I suppose it's possible that they are starting off with just one production line, and so all the displays have the colour filter applied.

CLEARink Wins People’s Choice Award At SID’s Display Week 2019

CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 Display Wows Attendees

San Jose, CA, May 21, 2019 –CLEARink Displays proudly announced that it won the prestigious People’s Choice Award, at the Society for Information Display’s (SID) annual Display Week tradeshow in San Jose on May 16th, 2019.

CLEARink's 9.7" tablet-sized displays demonstrated at Display Week are aimed at tablets and PC’s for education and other applications.

“On behalf of SID, I congratulate CLEARink Displays for winning SID’s first ever People’s Choice Award, at the Display Week International Symposium and Exhibition.” Said Dr. Helge Seetzen, President of SID. “This is one of the most prestigious awards in our industry, the winners were chosen from over 200 exhibitors, by our attendees from all over the world."

“It is an honor to win Display Week’s first People’s Choice Award.” said Frank Christiaens, CEO of CLEARink Displays. “We thank SID and the industry attendees that voted for us. Our team has accomplished a lot in the past year, we have best in class reflective displays, enviable investors and $300M in business from global customers. Our vision is to build the most valuable display company that solves market problems and has a deep impact on the industry and society. ”

Interesting... from the way I'm reading it, it is the first year for the award, and yet it is one of the most prestige ous awards for the industry. Irregardless (see the vent and rant thread) of Clearink winning, congratulations to the award for becoming so pretigious so quickly.

It is not a new award, just a different name with changed voting.

For 2019, Display Week is rolling out an exciting new show awards program that will allow attendees and exhibitors to vote for their favorite exhibits and products on the show floor. (The People’s Choice Awards will replace SID’s Best in Show awards.)

English is not my primary language and i wasn't meant to say anybody did anything.
I'm just reflecting on the interesting fact that software is eating the world.
An hw company can have a single product line and enable different level of service, based on software.
You have already Tesla that via software gave more battery autonomy to people escaping from an hurricane.
