Fujitsu Frontech starts to sell “Super Frontech Vision EP series”

Fujitsu Frontech today announced the development and commercial introduction of its indoor display board "Super Frontech Vision EP series", which adopts multiple color electronic paper panels and realizes ultra low-power operation.

This product is a slim and compact display board which integrates multiple color electronic papers. There are six models ranging in size from 12-inch to 48-inch depending on the number of panels integrated. Color electronic paper can display a still image without power, once the image is shown on the panel. Power is required only to change the image.

This product will be used several purposes such as electronic board for work instruction at a factory or as electronic information board at public places. This product will contribute to the realization of a paperless society.

World's highest class low-power design with electronic paper!!

Slim and light electronic display board incorporating multiple color electronic papers

Fujitsu Frontech has been developing and installing various sizes of display systems for many years particularly in the market of airports, stadiums, auction houses and hospitals.

In February 2007, Fujitsu Frontech developed and launched a new display called the "Super Frontech Vision HD/SD/BN series" that adopts LED display technology. In April 2007, Fujitsu Frontech also released a portable information terminal, "FLEPia", the first such terminal in the world to adopt color electronic paper.

For customers who desire to use "FLEPia" as a display or billboard, 6 models of "Super Frontech Vision EP series" have been added to Fujitsu Frontech's product lineup. Using at most 16 panels of color electronic paper, this product realizes the world's highest class low-power operation.

The following are main features of this product.

1. Rich size variations

There are 6 models; 12-inch (EP11), 17-inch (EP21), 24-inch (EP22), 29-inch (EP23), 36-inch (EP33) and 48-inch (EP44). These models commonly incorporate 12-inch color electronic paper; at most 16 panels. There are two color variations; silver and off-black. It is possible to install this product in both vertical and horizontal directions. For larger sizes over 48-inch, Fujitsu Frontech will accept special orders up to 120-inch (10 panels x 10 panels).

2. World's highest class low-power design

Jointly developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and Fujitsu Frontech Ltd., Fujitsu's color electronic paper can display a still image without power. Because power supply is necessary only for changing the image, tremendous power saving is realized. In comparison with ordinary liquid crystal panels or plasma display panels, less than one tenth of operation power is required (*1).

3. Slim, lightweight and easy to install

Ordinary displays are at least 100mm thick, but this product is very thin, ranging from 25mm (12 to 29-inch) to 54mm (36 to 48-inch) thickness depending on total panel size. It is also lightweight weighing, ranging from only 9.5kg (29-inch) to 32kg (48-inch), so that only simple construction is needed for installation. Because it consumes only 0.3A at 100V, the new product can be operated by using an ordinary power outlet on a wall.

4. Easy installation either with wired or wireless LAN

Featuring an embedded high-speed wireless LAN that conforms to IEEE802.11b/g (*2) which can transmit data at speeds up to 54 Mbps, the product can be installed freely in desired locations. If a wired LAN environment is already available, users can choose to use wired LAN..

5. Built-in battery enables maximum three-hour operation

Because a lithium polymer battery is embedded in each panel, the product can be operated for at most three hours (*3) without AC power supply, even when a blackout occurs.

6. Content distribution software is also available

Distribution software for distributing content is also provided. Using this tool, it is possible to distribute image files like JPEG, GIF and BMP and other content such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint of Microsoft and Adobe PDF files. The product can be used as a single large display with all panels showing one large image, or each panel can be used separately to display separate images.

*1: When content on a 48-inch display is changed every 10 minutes by connecting to the content distribution server. Power consumption of the server is not included.
*2: Available only for 12-inch to 29-inch models. 36-inch and 48-inch models only have wired LAN interface.
*3: When content is changed every 10 minutes by connecting to the contents distribution server with wireless LAN.
