These huge signs will limit visibility of the products themselves. The tiny shelf edge paper labels allow easy viewing of the products with their expensive printed marketing graphics.

less power means there's no need to install cables to power signage , and replacing many batteries once in a few years instead of very often. That saves a lot of work an money.

It is power consumption and power is money. If you can reduce power, you have a business.

LCD (excepting some more exotic types) requires power to maintain state and for backlight. E-paper does not need power for backlight and consumes much less power. I have seen estimates of 1 percent.

What is the benefit of using e-paper over LCD for signage application? The cost of LCD is likely the lowest among all. OLED is bendable. Power consumption may be one of the reasons. What else?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
