E Ink Holdings (EIH), announced that TÜV Rheinland Greater China has awarded its Kaleido Plus E Ink display with a "Paper Like Display" certification. This is the first display that receives TUVR's new certification.
EIH and experts at TÜV Rheinland worked in collaboration for two years to develop a metric for evaluating specific optical indicators on reading comfort for paper-like display products. These parameters were then evaluated against reading comfort in conjunction with user experience to arrive at the Paper Similarity Index (PSI), aimed to help consumers select ePaper products that offer a high level of reading or visual comfort.
E Ink Kaleido offers 16 gray levels and 4,096 colors, making it suitable for rich graphical information such as graphs, maps, images, comics, and advertising. TUVR's certification testing found that E Ink Kaleido Plus has a PSI rating of 86, the highest of all comparable products on the market rated by TÜV Rheinland to date.
