Etulipa announces cooperation with United Radiant Technology in Taiwan

Etulipa, a Dutch startup company in reflective digital outdoor displays, changes from pilot production to mass production in cooperation with United Radiant Technology in Taiwan, manufacturer of LCD small screen displays.

Etulipa develops reflective displays that reflect sunlight just like paper. The reflective displays are based on the electro wetting technology, which enables highly reflective displays.
URT develops and manufacturers non mobile LCD displays panels and modules for over 25 years.

Etulipa brings the first reflective product to the market that successfully passes all perception tests on readability and contrast under all outdoor conditions for out of home advertisement applications. With environmental benefits such as extreme low power consumption and a firm reduction of light pollution, this overcomes the disadvantages of LED displays. Etulipa and URT co-operate in the development of the production equipment for electro-wetting displays. URT states: “it is a unique business opportunity for us to stay ahead by innovation and thereby to expend our markets” Hans Feil, founder of Etulipa: ‘The cooperation with URT enables us to manufacture our first reflective screens for our first customers. After 4 years of development we are very excited to change from pilot production to mass production and show digital paper at large sizes.”

There has been a long quest for next generation outdoor displays that can be abundant as “paper”. Light pollution and energy consumption prohibit that LED displays can take that role. In addition, the Etulipa reflective screens have no negative effect on human health and are not disruptive for wild life. In conclusion, this technology will lift the ban wherever digital advertising is not allowed.

Etulipa and United Radiant Technology will be present at the Electronica Exhibition in Munich, 8-11 November 2016. Hall A3, booth 446.

Etulipa is one of the winners of the Top 10 startups to Watch 2016

On Thursday July 21st, 2016, 10 startups from Eindhoven have been honored with the Gerard and Anton Award 2016. The jury of the awards thinks these ten have all it takes to follow the footsteps of Gerard and Anton Philips who, 125 years ago, formed the first truly successful startup in the region.

With this new name for the Startups-to-Watch, E52 and the High Tech Campus wanted to express respect to the city’s heritage and to the very first Eindhoven startup that ultimately became a giant success. Gerard and Anton Philips are an example for every startup in 2016.

The jury made their choice because these are startups that will show remarkable progress in the coming 12 months. It could be that they will morph into a scale-up, or get bought by a big corporation seeking access to a new market. Anyway, they will change our lives with their technology.

Jury rapport on Etulipa: Thanks to Philips, Eindhoven is a breeding place for display technology. This spinout takes displays to a higher level, functioning with low energy and it takes away the need for light polluting billboards.

We’re proud to have won the Silver Innovation Award at the ISA Sign Expo 2016.

The ISA Sign Expo 2016 Innovation Awards are designed to recognize and honor the leaders in the sign and graphics industry for creating new and innovative products. The products were evaluated by a panel of industry experts in three areas: Innovation, impact and improvements in product or process, resulting in greater efficiency or quality.

“With more than 200,000 square feet and almost 600 exhibitors, the ISA Sign Expo 2016 tradeshow floor is already proving to be a great place to see the latest products on digital and graphic signage,” said Iain Mackenzie, ISA’s vice president, meetings and events. “While there were a number of truly innovative products submitted and available on the tradeshow floor, the 2016 Innovation Award winners offer ideas that can transform the industry through better workflow solutions or more effective products for end users.”
