Visionect announced a new e-paper based system for museum galleries. The AMLABEL Digital Gallery Display uses a 6" or 9.7" E Ink display and a Wi-Fi based management system to replace regular printed labels in Museums. The system is battery powered, completely cordless and can be installed without any drilling.
According to Visionect, museums usually print hundreds of labels per year, with the cost of each label around $70-$100 (including design and labor). The printed labels are costy and need to replaced manually - and of course are not interactive - you cannot display many languages, or increase the font size. The new solution aims to solve these problems.
