LiquavistaBright (www.liquavista.com) is the first technology platform developed by Liquavista and offers a unique combination of outstanding brightness in natural light and bold contrast, coupled to an intrinsic video capability. The display is a fully reflective monochrome active matrix with up to 64 grayscale levels.
The white appearance of the screen is remarkable and stays unchanged at any viewing angle. The display can be driven at different modes depending on the data content: every mode is characterized by a defined refresh rate and the power consumption in all these modes stay limited in a unique manner.
This display finds its natural destination in the handheld devices supporting a broad range of multimedia applications and requiring ultimate power management. Devices using the LiquavistaBright display can combine the durable eBook experience, which can be found in the current eReaders, with a new multimedia experience, which is according to recent marketing research one of the most requested benefits of future eReaders.
The technology features include a superior legibility and functional freedom that has a profound impact on the next generation of eReaders, and other hand held devices.
Using technology now referred to as “LCD 2.0” LiquavistaBright also offers integration of fully interactive touch-panel technology and a range of finishing which includes true paper-like appearance.
These specific upgrades enable users to utilise all the dynamic features of Liquavista’s technology such as video content and enhanced user interfaces with significantly lower power consumption than current eBook Readers available on the market today, without sacrificing the ‘paper like’ appearance that consumers find appealing.
