Iiyama offers Blue Light Reduction Technology for fatigue-free working … – Prad

In the office everyday life LED flat screens have become established in nearly every workplace. After scientific studies suggest the assumption that the amount of blue light to strain and eye fatigue, and at worst even to long-term damage to the macula, ie the fundus of the eye, can lead acts iiyama the now meet with his new Blue Light Reduction technology. This will in future be used in almost all models used and introduced continuously.
In daily work at the computer today uses virtually any TFT flat panel monitors that work with an active backlit by white LED lights. Most over several hours a day, many people sit in front of their monitors work-related. The light spectrum of such LED screens, however – similar to an energy-saving lamp – a very high proportion of blue light. Blue light has a similar wavelength such as UV light, but is a part of the visible spectrum. It may interfere with the UV light sensitive and sustainable manner similar to the eyes. So many people working on the screen, people complain of typical symptoms such as burning, watery and red eyes, eyelid flutter, tension, concentration problems, and headaches. Scientific studies even suggest that the blue light in the long term detrimental to the macula, ie the fundus acts. This is particularly sensitive to the blue light.

To enable a healthier and optimizes the working screen provides, Iiyama therefore a future technology which reduces the amount of blue in the light, without lowering the color temperature. Thus, for the blue component (460-nanometer) adjusted separately – what the color display visually hardly changes. The gain of the three color values ​​red, blue and green is more or less reduced, so that the color temperature can be maintained approximately. This can be enabled or disabled with a single click, to will need to manually place the settings for all three colors. Three different intensity levels can be selected, where Level 3 reduces the amount of blue most effective. Brightness losses can be doing while not entirely avoided, but should not be largely relevant only minimal and working at the monitor.

Although this subject is as yet no input in regulations such as the Regulation on Safety and Health at Work with display screen equipment ( BildscharbV) has found, is a reaction of the legislator to an introduction of limit values ​​not excluded. Employers should therefore take into account the new technology reduces blue light component in the establishment of computer workstations today. That at least is the statement of Iiyama on this topic.

The new Blue Light Reduction technology will in future be used in all desktop models from iiyama, ie all newly delivered models already include this feature. The first two models that have the new technology, are the ProLite GB2773HS-GB2 and ProLite GE2488HS-B1. For Large Format displays this feature, however, is not provided, because this is not the problem, because no one is working for hours on electronic information terminals.
