Earlier this year, E Ink announced a partnership with Sharp to bring ePaper posters to the market. Sharp and EIH has been collaborating for three years, and this is the first commercial step in that collaboration. Sharp released the first 42" monochrome E Ink displays (or e-posters as they call them) in the Japanese market in April 2023.
The two companies now announced that Sharp is also introducing color ePoster displays - the company will release 13.3" and 25.3" models in September and October 2023.
The Sharp ePoster products can be easily updated using a USB flash drive and can also be updated via a smartphone app. When combined with e-Signage S, Sharp’s proprietary software system for content distribution and management (sold separately), the display can be updated over a network, making managing and operating the display smooth and easy.
