E INK TRITON DISPLAY WINS WSJ INNOVATION AWARD
Cambridge, MA, October 19, 2011 – E Ink® Holdings, the leading developer and marketer of electronic paper display technologies, today announced that the Company's E Ink Triton™ display has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal as a 2011 Technology Innovation Award winner. E Ink Triton was the only innovation recognized in the Consumer Electronics category. Winners were featured online and in the October 17 issue of the paper.
"The 2011 Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards recognize innovations that break with conventional ideas and processes and go beyond marginal improvements to have a wide impact on future technology," said John Leger, news editor at the Wall Street Journal. "We received 605 entries, and only six percent of them received an award, including E Ink for the first color ePaper display, Triton."
"Our E Ink Triton displays will enable the use of electrophoretic displays for publishing applications that require color charts, graphics and images such as textbooks and magazines," said Sriram Peruvemba, Chief Marketing Officer at E Ink. "Recognition for this innovation from the Wall Street Journal is a testament to our Company's efforts to bring electronic paper solutions to the market that close the gap between paper and electronic displays."
E Ink continues to revolutionize the ePaper market with its E Ink Triton color displays. Triton displays deliver high-contrast, sunlight readable, low-power performance that further closes the digital divide between paper and electronic displays. Triton enables color ePaper solutions, enhancing the visual experience for ePublishing markets including eBooks, eNewspapers, eMagazines and eTextbooks.
E Ink Triton was also named "Gold Display Component of the Year" for the Display of the Year Awards (DYA) presented by the Society for Information Display (SID) earlier this year.
