eCCB: electronic Changeable
Copy Board

Etulipa’s eCCB is the first reflective outdoor display in the world, based on the patented Electro Wetting Display technology. The so-called electronic Changeable Copy Board is a black and white character-based display, which is ultra-low power. It needs less than 3 Watt to run, so it can work grid independent. A game changer in the rental business of mobile screens, temporarily wayfinding or signage for crowd control

The eCCB proves that the EWD technology works extremely well for outdoor displays:

  • energy consumption is so low it can run off-grid, on solar cells and a battery.
  • It has the intrinsic capability to reduce light pollution as caused by other digital displays
  • the readability in bright sunshine is excellent

Some technical information:

  • Size of an eCCB: 4 x 8 feet
  • An eCCB consists of 5 lines with 3 panels each
  • Each panel consists of 8 tiles
  • Each tile has 7 x 11 pixels, pixel size is 10 mm
  • Each tile is one character
  • Energy consumption is less than 3 watts
  • Night-time illumination is optional; extra energy consumption for night-time illumination is 5 watts

Monochrome displays

Etulipa’s Matrix monochrome display offers the same advantages as the eCCB. It operates off-grid, so there’s no excavation work needed for cabling, and produces almost zero light pollution, which makes it easier to get permits.
