Xerox has developed a new type of paper that offers a colour display without utilising a colour filter.

The e-paper boasts electrophoretic technology and moves particles in order to create colours, with each of these being controlled by changes in threshold value, reports Tech-On.

Xerox exhibited a prototype version of the paper at the SID 2012 show, in which colours were created by moving red and cyan particles.

It also had a screen size of five inches, a pixel count of 600 x 800 and a 200dpi resolution, while it also has a reflectance of 30 per cent and a contrast ratio of 10:1.

In order for the paper's backboard to function, it uses amorphous silicon TFTs.

News of Xerox's new innovation comes after the ink company was named a Managed Print Services in a new report.

The accreditation was given to the business after it picked up the top vendor ranking when it comes to market presence.
