SES-imagotag, the global leader in Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs) and digital solutions for physical retail, today announces that it has developed together with E Ink, the leading innovator and manufacturer in electronic ink technology, a brand-new e-Paper display ESL product line.
This new leading-edge ESL generation developed by SES-imagotag features industry-first 4-color e-paper displays (black, white, red and yellow), with unprecedented pixel density and resolution. Thanks to best-in-class E Ink SpectraTM 3100 display technology platform, modularity and quality, these new labels will enable retailers and brands to highlight marketing campaigns in-store like never before.
Available for pilots in the second half of 2021, this new digital label generation is a new strategic asset to physical stores as they will have the opportunity to display engaging and premium content in store, chain-wide, at minimal costs thanks to the Cloud platform developed by SES-imagotag. At the same time, brands will be able to boost their in-store advertising and presence.
“E Ink is excited to work closely with SES-imagotag as we create the next generation four-color E Ink platform”, said Johnson Lee, CEO of E Ink. “E Ink believes in such strong partnerships so we can bring the best electronic shelf labels and signage solutions to retail markets. Our next generation display technology provides a significant improvement by incorporating four of the most commonly used colors in the retail industry and by bringing higher resolution to these tags and other signage.”
