How Electronic Ink Works
Electronic ink displays work in ink, like books and newspapers, but show the ink particles electronically. People who see the display for the first time do a double take because the screen looks like real paper.
No eye strain – reads like real paper, not a computer screen
Kindle electronic ink display is ideal for reading, since it does not create eyestrain as reading in the traditional backlit LCD tablets or laptops.
Text clearer and sharper screen
Electronic ink uses real ink to create a sharp text printing, as similar to what is seen in a physical book. Kindle owned, hand-made sources to take advantage of the special characteristics of the ink for crisp, clear letters.
Dull, even in bright sunlight
Kindle screen reflects light like ordinary paper, eliminating the glare created by the backlit LCD screen tablet or smartphones. Kindle can be read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room.
Increased battery life
Electronic ink displays do not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for up to a month with a single charge rather than hours on a tablet or smartphone. This low power consumption also means that the Kindle, unlike a laptop, never gets hot so you can comfortably read as long as you want.
Read before bed without affecting sleep
According to a recent article in the Los Angeles Times, the sleep experts say that reading on screen with backlight jealously guarded before bed inhibits the production of melatonin, which is critical for a night’s sleep. “The final lesson is that insomnia and electronic devices that emit light should not [be] mixed before bedtime… Kindle is better for sleep.”
Why E Ink is easier on the eyes than the LCD?
Here are some of the technical reasons:
- Brightness environment: Every time you change the eye of a bright (like LCD) to the dim room environment, the eyes adjust to what can cause fatigue. With E Ink, the page is the same brightness as everything else in the room so no adjustment needed.
- No parallax Parallax is the apparent displacement of an observed object due to a change in the position of the observer. Text E Ink screen does not seem to change at different viewing angles.
- Less Brightness: All surfaces of E Ink is trying to be dull, like a printed page. Most LCD screens are not, creating reflections and reduces readability.
- Uniform contrast ratio: Contrast ratio of LCD detectable varies with viewing angle. E Ink contrast is uniform, so that you can read comfortably at any angle.
- No loss of aperture ratio: LCD screens have small black gaps between each pixel, but E ink displays have 100% open rate. The black and white E Ink screen is uniform, improving image quality.
