CopyTele Licenses Technology to AUO For E-Paper® and Nano Displays

Melville, NY | Posted on June 1st, 2011

Our advanced E-Paper® electrophoretic display technology utilizes specially coated particles in combination with a unique type of pixel structure to create an image. This new technology is applicable for electronic books and other low power applications. Our Nano display technology incorporates a new type of low voltage color phosphors in combination with nano materials and an electron emission system utilizing nano materials to produce color video information. CopyTele's Nano Display is applicable to small hand-held and larger size applications including TV's.

CopyTele Chairman and CEO, Denis A. Krusos, said, "We are pleased to have an agreement with AUO, one of the world's leaders in flat panel displays. With the addition of AUO, CopyTele has the opportunity to bring its display technologies into all phases of the world-wide display marketplace."

AUO is a global leader of thin film transistor liquid crystal display panels (TFT-LCD). AUO is able to provide customers with a full range of panel sizes and comprehensive applications, offering TFT-LCD panels in sizes ranging from 1.2 inches to greater than 71 inches. AUO generated NT $467.2 billion in sales revenue in 2010 (US $16 billion*) with global operations in Taiwan, Mainland China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, the U.S., and Europe. Additionally, AUO is the first pure TFT-LCD manufacturer to be successfully listed at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). AUO extended its market to the green energy industry in late 2008. The Display and Solar businesses were established respectively as the Company's two core businesses in October, 2010. For more information, please visit AUO.com.
