Screen lighting

Capacitive Multi-touch screen

The 6" E Ink Carta display has a lighter base and higher contrast than any other scrrens of this type. It makes the text readable in bright sunlight and has a high rate of a screen refresh. The absence of shimmering light and the principle of image formation with the E Ink method makes reading comfortable for your eyes. A capacitive Multi-touch screen enables easy controlling while reading a document: scrolling, zooming, making notes in the text and using additional functions.

Screen lighting

The unique MOON Light technology enables one to use the device in the dark or under poor lighting conditions. When this function is in use, soft luminescence of the screen comfortable for reading шт dark rooms is being generated.

What is MOON Light?

MOON Light technique uses a reflective light distribution. The light-conducting layer is located over the display. The light goes through this layer and is reflected towards the screen being absorbed by the dark elements of the image and then this reflected light enters the eyes. This attribute mimics the traditional reflected light from an external source. This kind of lighting is significantly more comfortable for reading than backlit LCD displays.
