"It is a great pleasure to work with JDI to develop new electronic ink applications. JDI has proven to be the market leader in the display industry. With JDI's global sales presence, world class customer base, and world class TFT expertise, JDI can better serve many potential ePaper customers looking to use E Ink's technology. I believe this partnership is a win-win for both parties," said Dr. Frank Ko, Chairman and CEO of E Ink Holdings.
"I am pleased to start a strategic alliance with E Ink which owns unique electrophoretic technology. I expect to create new markets through the combination of JDI’s backplane technologies and electronic ink technology. Adding electronic ink technology to our growing LCD technology and developing AMOLED technology, I believe that JDI can make its product line-up stronger and proceed to diversify its business portfolio," said Mitsuru Homma, Chairman and CEO of Japan Display Inc.
With JDI's backplane technology and In-cell touch technology which is based on JDI’s unique LTPS, E Ink can improve the performances of E Ink display modules.

The companies are expecting to roll out the collaboration in full dimension," said Johnson Lee, President of E Ink Holdings.
"JDI and E Ink have worked together for many years manufacturing LCD modules. This new alliance has further cemented our relationship with E Ink.
