TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TUV Rheinland, the internationally recognized leader in third-party certification body, formally announced that select models from Dell's new lines of premium and gaming notebooks with Eyesafe® display have met its low blue light requirements. In a ceremony at Computex Taipei it was announced that Dell premium and gaming models with Eyesafe® display have met TUV Rheinland's low blue light certification requirements including Alienware Area 51m, Alienware m17, G7 and XPS 13 2-in-1.
This certification marks an important step in the evolution of the display industry's recognition of the health risks associated with chronic screen time and over exposure to harmful blue light. This certification indicates that optimal technical balance between display performance and user health has been achieved.
Compared to other solutions for blue light, which impact the color gamut with software, Eyesafe® Display redesigns light at the hardware level while maintaining color performance.
Dell Technologies unveiled new products from its Alienware, G-Series and XPS lines that have been integrated with Eyesafe® display earlier this week at Computex, enabling them to meet TUV low blue light requirements - TUV Rheinland's Method 2 is a hardware low-blue light requirement that is seldom met in the PC industry, requiring that the ratio of high-energy visible blue light (415-455nm) to total blue light (400-500nm) is below 50%.
Eyesafe® intelligently manages in-display high-energy visible blue light while maintaining color performance. The Eyesafe® display was developed with a world-class team of eye doctors, engineers and scientists with decades of experience in electronics, display materials, and light management. Eyesafe® display was designed to meet the most exacting industry requirements for safety and color performance.
"TUV Rheinland is proud to support the display industry's continuing focus on developing devices that are designed with consumer health and safety top of mind," said Jay Yang, TUV Rheinland Vice President for Greater China. "The integration of effective blue light management is a critical step towards long-term health."
"I am pleased to receive on behalf of the entire Dell team this certification from TUV Rheinland. We believe that our new products with Eyesafe® display will set a new bar for our industry," said Ray Wah, Senior Vice President for Dell Small Business and Consumer Product Group. "Customers for Dell's high-performance lines are among the most demanding in the industry, and we are excited to bring this innovation in display to Alienware, G-Series and XPS."
As daily screen time from phones, tablets, computers and virtual reality is increasing, so is consumption of high-energy visible blue light. With extended use of devices -- many in increasingly close proximity to eyes -- the negative heath consequences are becoming evident. A growing body of research connects the impacts of blue light exposure to natural sleep cycles and suggests an array of potential related health issues.
"Manufacturers are making important decisions for their users, and we are proud to play a role in the industry's focus on health," said Justin Barrett, CEO of Healthe, the company that developed Eyesafe®. "There is still a lot of work to be done, but this an important milestone for TUV Rheinland and Dell."
