(the “Company” or “Ynvisible”) (TSX-V: YNV, FSE: 1XNA, OTCQB: YNVYF) is pleased to announce the first commercial delivery of wholly customized roll-to-roll printed segment displays to Pickletech, LLC, a technology company providing portable scoreboards for use in Pickleball tournaments and events.

“We are excited about this delivery to Pickletech as the displays are used in real-life situations where large audiences will see the displays in use. This is an accomplishment of our prototyping services and the successful transition to large area roll-to-roll production of electrochromic displays. We can make displays completely customizable to a client’s needs and deliver in increasing volumes. We are thrilled with yet another client success”, said Tommy Hoglund, Ynvisible’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Lee Daniel, Lead Engineer, Pickletech, LLC, worked with Ynvisible to design the segmented displays. Our previous hardware designs using LEDs and ePaper were prototyped with the conclusion that the displays needed to be larger and cheaper but would be too power-hungry to be visible in direct sunlight and would be cost-prohibitive at a larger size.
Ynvisible’s technology has allowed us to have custom displays specific to our needs that are 7x larger than our previous design and cost savings of 60% over the previous, smaller displays. That unit cost savings includes full design, prototyping, and a modest initial production run. The operation of the displays is also much more visually appealing compared to ePaper. The transition from one number to the next is smooth without the flashing/blinking associated with ePaper technology. Lastly, the driver interface for the displays was much simpler than the ePaper displays. This allowed us to further reduce costs by simplifying the design of the other electronics needed to operate the scoreboard”, said Jarick Rager, Owner, Pickletech.
