Varitronix – Bi-Stable Cholesteric Display (BCD)

Bi-stable Cholesteric technology is truly unique in that it doesn’t require any power to drive the display. Power is only necessary when the image will be refreshed; the image will be retained after power off. No Polarizer or backlight is needed without any viewing angle penalties, resulting in a thinner and lighter display. This makes it perfect for applications such as signage, price labels, e-books, metering.
