Monochrome Active Matrix

Carta Imaging Film offers a 50% improvement in contrast ratio over previous generation of ePaper displays. Carta supports E Ink’s new Regal technology which virtually eliminates the need for a full page refresh with page turns. All providing a more focused and improved reading experience.


Enhanced Readability

E Ink Carta delivers a dramatic 50% increase in contrast over earlier generations of ePaper, giving eReaders a contrast ratio close to that of a paperback book. The crisp text and detailed graphics are also highly readable in direct sunlight. Carta’s 16 levels of grey produce the sharpest rendering of images with smooth tones and rich detail.


Smoother Page Turns

E Ink Carta supports the new Regal technology for page updates. Regal virtually eliminates the need for a full page refresh giving the reader smoother page transitions for more focused reading.


Lowest Power Consumption

E Ink makes the lowest power displays in the eReader industry. Carta delivers the same low power display capability of all E Ink electrophoretic displays. E Ink is bistable, which means it needs no power to hold an image or page of text. Learn more about how our ink significantly prolongs your battery life on our technology page.



E Ink Carta modules consist of a TFT (thin film transistor), Ink layer and Protective Sheet. In addition, product designers can include a touch solution, which is incorporated into the module stack. E Ink currently offers digitizer and capacitive touch solutions. Digitizer touch technology utilizes a stylus to update the display, with the touch sensor sitting under the TFT. Capacitive touch technology utilizes finger swipes, and is placed on top of the display module. E Ink’s touch solutions will not affect the reflectivity of the display.
