Liquavista is a Dutch company founded in 2006 as a spin-off from Philips. It develops colour e-paper video screens that can work with or without a backlight using electrowetting technology. It has teamed up with Texas Instruments to combine Liquavista screens with TI's OMAP processors in a portable media player or e-reader.
In 2010 Liqavista began the final step in fully commercialising the technology as it sent out SDKs to OEMs. It is also working with Plastic Logic to create thin flexible newspapers. In Dec. 2010, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd acquired Liquavista B.V. for an undisclosed amount. Liquavista anticipates the first productions runs of its electrowetting display panel to come in 2013.
