Meet the most colorful E Ink Gallery 3 screen

PocketBook Viva is the first in Europe e-reader that uses the revolutionary color E Ink Gallery 3 screen. Every single pixel is filled with color pigments, which makes the color combinations richer and more saturated. E Ink Gallery 3 was created based on the new approach that does not involve the use of the Color Filter Array, which allows displaying the full color gamut. Both color and black-and-white image have now the same high resolution of 1440 × 1920 and 300 PPI.

The innovative color E Ink Gallery 3 screen has all the unique properties and optical characteristics of classic E Ink, which make the e-reader extremely energy efficient and eye-safe. Moreover, thanks to E Ink ComfortGazeTM technology, the effect of "blue light" on users’ eyes can now be eased. ComfortGaze frontlight technology reduces Blue Light Ratio (BLR) by up to 60 percent compared to the previous generation of front light design, which provides additional comfort and protection.

The book-size 8-inch screen suits perfectly for any content: from ordinary books to color comics, magazines, or documents with graphs and tables.

Thanks to the SMARTlight function, users can adjust not only the brightness but also the color temperature of the screen, choosing the warm or cool tone of the frontlight.
