Digital Signage with infsoft E-Ink Display Beacons

Electrophoretic ink, often called electronic ink (E-Ink), is a technology that imitates the look of ink on paper. E-Ink displays are easily readable from any viewing angle, offer design freedom, robustness, and low power consumption. Devices using E-Ink are referred to as bistable, meaning that the display is consuming power only when content is updated, which is the key reason for the products’ long battery lifes of up to 5 years.

Thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, content can be transferred flexibly and automatically to infsoft E-Ink Display Beacons, and the display’s location can be visualized on a digital map via infsoft software tools. 

E-Ink Display Beacons as Infrastructure Hardware

infsoft E-Ink Display Beacons are available in many different sizes. Larger displays can get permanently integrated into the infrastructure and are used for digital signage applications such as the dynamic labeling of rooms, lockers, etc.

Smaller E-Ink Display Beacons can be used as tag hardware for electronic labeling of containers, shelves, beds, and more :


Businesses are offered the ability to wirelessly update content on the displays quickly and efficiently, without needing to print paper notices and deploy personnel to adjust them manually. In real time, fixed E-Ink beacons can display room or building information, reservation details, points of interest (POI), workspace occupancy, and much more. The displays can be rewritten automatically with individual information such as current room occupancy details or booking status.

Combining E-Ink displays and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology enables transferring content flexibly to the display and also visualizing the device’s location. In order to display content on the infsoft E-Ink Display Beacon, the desired device and content are selected in the infsoft CMS tool or a corresponding app (“infsoft E-Ink Writer”). Via Bluetooth, the content is transferred to the display. The content can not only be updated manually, but also automatically – using infsoft Automation to define corresponding conditions.

For positioning, the infsoft E-Ink Display Beacon sends BLE signals to infsoft Locator Nodes that are installed in the area. The Locator Nodes process the provided data and send it to the infsoft LocAware platform®, where it is intelligently processed.
