The purpose of this paper is to present information about new display technologies that are competing with print. Display technology continues to mature, as in the case of full-color OLED, which has been incorporated into its first consumer product, The Kodak EasyShare LS 633 digital camera. Digital ink pioneer E Ink, through its partnership with Philips Electronics, will introduce its first commercial product in early 2004. Gyricon Media, the inventor of the electronic paper category, has opened its first manufacturing plant. In addition, new flexible display technologies have been introduced, such as SiPix Microcup, and the electronic display form-factor has been scaled up considerably by companies such as Magink and NOVUS. These companies are poised to produce large-format electronic displays that rival the size of traditional 30-sheet billboards. Developments continue to evolve in displays of all sizes, from those the size of cell phone to those on the sides of buildings.
