Bookeen’s R&D team has come up with what many has deemed to be impossible – that is, achieving video playback on an E Ink Pearl display. Normally, E Ink displays cater for e-book readers and the ilk, working great under direct sunlight but having relatively poor refresh rates compared to other display technologies like LED and LCD, which is why it does not support video playback on the safe side. Bookeen has turned the tables with their latest development which runs off a TI OMAP 3621 CPU complete with an embedded software controller, showing off a H.264 encoded video that performed admirably well (you can view said video after the jump). All of this is achieved on components that are available on the market while working in tandem with Bookeen’s software. What next that this has been achieved?
