Office technology sales and service provider Midshire will be showcasing the first of its kind – IGZO technology ultra-high-definition signage solutions – at the 2017 100% Optical Trade Show at Excel next month.
Leading the way in digital display, IGZO is a revolutionary, multi-award winning technology, that achieves what no other display has been able to.
The screens are being showcased at 100% Optical, by Midshire, ‘Best Office Technology Supplier in the UK’ at the UK Corporate Excellence Awards 2016 and a Sharp Centre of Excellence.
Sharp Business Systems UK Plc is the first in the world to successfully manufacture and mass produce this ultra-high-definition technology where Sharp’s visual solutions are revolutionising the world of new-generation, 4k ultra-high-definition devices.
IGZO is a display made with artificially produced transparent crystalline oxide semiconductors and composed of indium, gallium, zinc and oxygen.
Midshire Technology Sales Manager, Stuart Carruthers, comments on this new technology:
“We are really excited to bring this new, world-leading technology to 100% Optical.
“These ultra-high-definition, in-store signage solutions are the perfect platform to advertise products, brands and services; grabbing the attention of potential customers and helping stimulate footfall. By showcasing products, brands and services 24-hours a day, on quality displays such as ours, its proven to help increase sales and brand awareness, especially in retail environments.
“Our interactive, touchscreen panels mean customers can interact with your adverts and product range 24-hours a day. If linked up to a company’s website, they can even ‘click today and wear tomorrow’.”
A major strength of IGZO technology is in its low power consumption. Previous screens had to overwrite still image data, but IGZO keeps it without overwriting, even when the power is off. For this reason, it reduces power consumption to a fifth or even a tenth that of conventional screens, also contributing greatly to a longer battery life.
Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn recently acquired Sharp Business Systems UK Plc, investing £2.4bn into the company, becoming a 66% majority stakeholder and securing the future of Sharp as a company, that is widely known across the globe.
Midshire has a complete portfolio of products; specialising in print solutions, IT services and business telecommunications.
