ÜV Rheinland Certifies Dell Notebooks with Eyesafe Display for Low Blue Light Requirements

TÜV 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 TÜV 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 TÜV low blue light requirements – TÜV 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.

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.
