Eindhoven-based Liquavista, a spin-out from Dutch electronics giant Philips, developed and patented an innovative electro-wetting technology for use in electronic display screens. Its unique IP allowed it to create full colour, ‘paper-like’ displays, capable of displaying video, while consuming less than one third the power of a traditional LCD. Liquavista’s technology could address all the display markets currently dominated by LCDs, including mobile and fixed applications.

Liquavista was acquired by Samsung Electronics in December 2010.
