New Dell certified Eyesafe display may help you sleep better at night

Cognitive health benefits are offered with Eyesafe displays

Select new Dell notebooks now certified for low blue light emissions.

Some of us are glued to our phones, tablets, computers every waking moment. We’ve all heard people say how too much display time is bad for your eyes or the blue light emitted is keeping your body alert particularly at night and possibly the reason one doesn’t sleep well.

There are healthy levels and ranges of blue light. Studies have shown that blue light helps alertness during the day and essential for cognitive functions. However a growing body of research referenced by, connects the impact of blue light exposure to natural sleep cycles and suggests an array of potential related health issues.

Totally avoiding screen time at night may seem impractical. Nevertheless, Dell thinks they have found a solution. At Computex Taipei (trade fair), Dell announced select models for their new lines of premium and gaming notebooks including models from their Alienware, G-Series and XPS lines will be equipped with new Eyesafe displays. These have met its low blue light requirements earning a low blue light certification from TÜV Rheinland, an internationally recognized German-based technical inspection and certification association.

“I am pleased to receive on behalf of the entire Dell team this certification from TÜV 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.”

The Eyesafe technology was not developed by a single individual but rather with a world-class team of eye doctors, engineers and scientists with decades of experience in electronics, display materials, and light management.

According to Dell, the beauty of the Eyesafe technology is it intelligently manages in-display high-energy visible blue light while maintaining colour performance. It emits 29% less blue light but the change appears to be totally transparent to the user. This is accomplished by the display redesigning the light at the hardware level rather than having to do it at a software level which could potentially impact the colour gamut.

Screen time is inevitable. Anything that can reduce the probability of eye damage and not disturb a good night’s rest in our sleep deprived society is a good thing in my books. We have certainly seen the evolution of monitors – high-res, high-def, flicker-free, anti-glare and now low blue light. Whatever technology is being used, it should be interesting to see how quickly the entire industry heads in that direction where all monitors are good – or maybe not so bad for one’s health.
