Tokyo, October 25, 2012. Japan Display Inc. (JDI), a global leader in LCD technologies, has developed a new paper-like color reflective LCD, which has very low power consumption* and can display moving pictures.

A key technology is an optical property optimization adopting a newly-developed scattering layer. Another key technology is fabricating SRAMs in each pixel using LTPS technology so that power is minimized for non-changing screen images.

JDI will demonstrate it in booth #2701 at FPD International Japan 2012, held October 31 through November 2, 2012, in Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan.
