E Ink and Avalue Announce a Digital Paper Tablet Customizable for Use in Industrial and Educational Market Segments

BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--E Ink Holdings, the leading innovator of electronic ink technology, and Avalue, a global industrial PC solution provider, today announced a Digital Paper tablet that can be optimized for use within a wide array of industrial and educational applications.


The Digital Paper tablet featuring E Ink’s proprietary electronic paper display, offers a paper-like experience for reading, annotating and note taking on letter size documents. The glare free, easy-on-the-eyes display is great for longer term immersive reading, even in direct sunlight. A non-slip surface delivers the “feel” of pen on paper when highlighting, annotating, or erasing on documents. With a thin, lightweight yet durable design, and long battery life, the Digital Paper tablet can improve existing document workflows to deliver a better, more efficient user experience.

“E Ink is very excited to be part of this new offering to our customers,” said Tim O’Malley, Associate VP of US Business, E Ink. “This new product enables customers without a large product design department to quickly bring a new device to market, and gives consumers a writing device that has the look and feel of paper, with the benefits of a digital connection.”

“At Avalue, we deliver high quality solutions into different markets and we’re very excited to introduce E Ink technology into new industries and applications,” said Vincent Hsu, President of Avalue USA. “We feel this solution can help to bring efficiency to many different markets.”

The functionality and user interface can be customized to meet the specific needs of applications across many industrial and educational market segments including: STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) disciplines, higher education, corporate training, legal, finance, publishing and government.

The Digital Paper tablet can integrate with exiting workflow applications by utilizing Digital Paper Control Server Software (DCSS). DCSS includes a set of APIs that enable sending and receiving unique documents to and from unique Digital Paper tablets. Additional APIs manage the control of folder, document, display and authentication settings. The Digital Paper tablet can also integrate with existing services by optimizing an Android application for use on the electronic paper display. Software development kits, tool sets, documentation, and technical support are available from Avalue to assist developers in creating the optimal paper like experience tailored to the specific needs of many workflow applications.
