Liquavista Introduces ColorMatch FreeStyle Platform

Liquavista launches their latest displays. The display range called FreeStyle, gives designers unparalleled ability to translate their product vision without compromise. The color, size and shape of the active segments/pixels can all be chosen to blend seamlessly with the overall product concept enabling differentiation and value for the whole product to flow from the display.

ColorMatch FreeStyle technology offers significant improvements in display performance over LCD, as well as offering an amazing range of color combinations and design freedom. It also offers higher contrast improving the readability of the screen wherever you are and eliminating the need for supplementary lighting in many cases. FreeStyle uses Liquavista's ColorMatch platform to give world-beating display brightness - a reflective performance of more than 50% over an unlimited viewing angle - all at the same power as a reflective LCD.

Liquavista' has developed and patented an innovative Electrowetting technology for mobile device display screens. ColorMatch is the first platform to be released to the market but looking forward, this technology has the same range and ability to show videos and full color images as current LCD screens, while also addressing two main problems inherent in today's displays: poor readability in bright lighting conditions and high power consumption that drains batteries quickly. Compatible with existing LCD manufacturing process the displays offer a bright new opportunity in the display market. The opportunity for a new display technology that addresses these problems is huge, with today's global market for mobile displays at ?16 billion and for LCD displays at over ?62 billion.

Products for which Liquavista's Electrowetting technology offers real improvements in visibility and power consumption range from watches, mobile phones and digital cameras to ATM screens and large flat panels.
