Building a Smart eBadge – Putting the Puzzle Together

See how E Ink and our partners are creating solutions in the eBadge industry.

Watch Any Time!

Smart eBadges take the traditional plastic key card and the traditional printed visitor badge, marrying them both to a display that allows for an all-in-one ID badge with an updatable image and messaging. Why hasn’t this been done before? Two words – power constraints. Traditional LCD displays require power to display an image – even if it doesn’t change; a badge would need to be charged multiple times per day. Enter E Ink’s Digital Paper technology. This low power display only requires power to change an image, not to maintain it. And with new low power communication systems, the promise of a Smart eBadge can now be realized.

Join E Ink, and our partner’s Atmosic and Alpha ID, as we discuss how to build a Smart eBadge using E Ink’s Digital Paper, Atmosic’s low power BLE with an energy harvesting option, and Alpha IDs customizable software and industrial design.
