The new HANNspree Paper Display overcomes the environmental factors detrimental to outdoor display performance and carbon footprint

Harnessing natural light to deliver outdoor performance and power dynamic displays for greener smart city, smart retail, smart edutainment, smart healthcare and smart manufacture solutions.

Experts in display, HANNspree, will participate in Embedded World 2023 to unveil revolutionary display technology that will enable efficient and sustainable applications for the future. The company is utilising the global platform to launch its new Paper Display and demonstrate to the trade fair’s visitors how the concept of smart display solutions can become a reality thanks to new Argentum Birefringence Display Technology by HANNspree’s parent company, HannStar.

The new HANNspree Paper Display overcomes the environmental factors detrimental to outdoor display performance and carbon footprint. Paper Display says goodbye to traditional, power hungry backlight technology that performs poorly in sunlight, and instead adopts HannStar Argentum Birefringence Display Technology which actually utilises ambient light to enable images to be viewed perfectly in direct sunlight, and, alongside self-developed power saving, reduces energy consumption by up to 80% compared to backlit displays. Paper Display delivers on performance too, boasting fast response times so that dynamic information can updated in milliseconds.

The new technology by HannStar will be available in HANNspree Paper Display ranging from 1.54”- 21.5”, creating extensive possibilities for solution applications. From wearables and handhelds through to transportation and digital signage, Paper Display is designed to be the best and most ethical choice for smart devices to create the smart city, smart retail, smart edutainment, smart healthcare and smart manufacture of tomorrow. HANNspree Paper Display is already installed in Taiwan having won a tender with the TaiChung city government and is successfully delivering a dynamic smart bus timetable.

Paper Display is born from the company’s new strategy to focus on realising the green evolution of display technology. Together, HANNspree and HannStar are working to bring about a new era of digital display and by doing so are supporting hardware manufacturers to meet sustainability targets.

HannStar chairman comments: “We have decided to invest in ultra-low power display technology and solutions for the future to echo our pursuit of helping to protect the planet. With Paper Display, we already make product design significantly more efficient, and we are also committed to reducing carbon footprint through materials, manufacturing and logistics. We are achieving our goals while delivering product that performs better. We are confident that with Paper Display, the smart display concept can become a reality and we are excited to demonstrate the potential at Embedded World.”
