The ereader market may have peaked several years ago, but E-ink screens aren't dead. A small Slovenian startup continues to find new uses and markets.
The Amlabel digital gallery display offers museum curators a new alternative to static paper labels, one which can be changed remotely with a minimum of time and effort.
As Visionect explained, a recently surveyed group of museums reported that 66% of the respondents printed more than 200 labels per year while a third printed 500 plus labels per year. All reported an average cost of $70-$100 per label, with a single misprint or a change of text causing this cost to double.
The Amlabel cuts that cost by letting museums and galleries update a label digitally. Not only does this reduce reprint costs but it also lets curators change details, or even the language on the label, at the drop of a hat.
The Amlabel comes in 6" and 9.7" screen sizes, and connects to existing Wifi networks. Its battery is good for months.
