About

NEXT GENERATION REFLECTIVE DISPLAY

CLEARink Displays is a US incorporated venture backed startup, with R&D in US and Canada. CLEARink aims to revolutionize the reflective display industry by developing reflective display modules, based on proprietary technology, that combines the daylight readability of paper with the colorful video performance of digital displays. The company was formed in 2012 by a number of co-founders who have together started over 10 companies, including Vancouver success stories TIR (sold to Philips) and Brightside (sold to Dolby). The company has also attracted a world-class advisory team, which includes a former CTO from Philips and a former CEO from Barco.

CLEARink’s unique and patented technology was originally developed at the University of British Columbia. The company currently holds 23 patents with several more pending. The development is being supported by co-development partners and potential customers in Taiwan, the Netherlands, the UK, and USA.

Products

CLEARink Displays develops reflective display modules that are low power, full-colour, outdoor-readable, video capable, and all that at a cost comparable to LCD. CLEARink’s display modules will revolutionize the use cases for wearables, smartphones/tablets, eSchool books, electronic shelf labels and outdoor signage, the total combined accessible market of which will be over $12 billion by 2018. Evaluation kits will be available from Q2, 2017.

Technology

CLEARink’s technology is based on varying the brightness of a specially designed reflector film by modulating the total internal reflection of ambient light from the film, using a single electrically charged particle suspended in a liquid.  The inherent simplicity of CLEARink’s technology also leads management to believe that manufacturing costs will be lower than for any other reflective display technology, at comparable volumes. The technology progress to date has been beyond expectations:

– Demonstrated displays with a brightness that exceeds those in commercial e-readers
– A much brighter display leading to a market leading color reflective display
– Demonstrated displays with high frame rates, enabling Internet surfing capability
– Power usage well below that of other display technologies such as LCD or OLED, and only slightly above traditional monochrome reflective displays

CLEARink is focused on outsourcing key component development tasks to vendor companies that are leaders in their respective space, and the manufacturing strategy is to leverage existing infrastructure in the Far East.
