Technology Innovation Offers Versatilities and Matches Retailers’ Needs

Launched by E Ink Holdings, Spectra™ 3100 is a major step forward in the technology that incorporates retailer’s requests for additional colour functionality.

It provides retailers with the benefits of system-wide pricing and labour-free updates, boosting staff’s productivity. The clear price messaging to customers empowers an enhanced shopping experience. As retail moves towards further automation nowadays, Spectra™ 3100 allows valuable communication between shoppers and in-store staff. The latter can now rearrange their time to engage with shoppers more readily and easily, allowing greater customer interaction to optimise service quality.

In addition, the expanded temperature range of Spectra™ 3100 affords various operation environments, including freezers and refrigerators. Thanks to the magnificent design and sophisticated Display IC Solutions powered by Solomon Systech, Spectra™ 3100 now incorporates more colours yet in the same power-saving display and has a lifetime of several years. Spectra™ 3100 can be handily deployed in all kinds of supermarkets, retail stores and outlets.

Spectra™ 3100 is also characterised by improved updated time, wide viewing angle for greater visibility across the store, and the capability of incorporating sparkling flashing mode when changing images. These unparalleled versatilities and other advantages offer abundant flexibilities and empower retailers in their marketing and promotion initiatives.

In the course of design and development, the Company’s R&D team has overcome challenges to manipulate multiple driving voltage. The successful launch of Spectra™ 3100 echoes our unwavering commitment to going the extra miles and our perseverance to achieve and excel.
