BenQ, a world-leading provider of display technology and solutions, and Eyesafe, a global pioneer in blue light mitigating technology, standards, and solutions, announced a successful collaboration on a BenQ monitor that will be highlighted as part of the CES 2023 Innovation Showcase in Las Vegas.
Eyesafe DTX is a proprietary hardware solution that allows display manufacturers to reduce blue light toxicity while boosting display performance. BenQ will achieve the best level of blue light protection on the market with Eyesafe DTX. Unlike other hardware and software solutions that have a significant influence on colour gamut, white point, and luminance, Eyesafe DTX takes a patented approach to blue light protection without sacrificing colour performance.
BenQ will introduce an Eyesafe DTX monitor with a Radiance Protection Factor (RPF®) of 70 at CES, the greatest blue light protection available in the market.
This monitor is one of only eight products listed in the Computer Hardware and Components category of the CES Innovation Showcase. “BenQ has always placed tremendous importance on consumer health and safety throughout the product development process, and today’s announcement marks a seminal moment for our company,” said Conway Lee, the Chief Executive Officer and President of BenQ. “We are honored to be recognized, together with our partners at Eyesafe, by the Consumer Technology Association for our shared commitment to health and safety as well as optimal display performance. The BenQ Eyesafe DTX monitor that will be featured in the CES Innovation Showcase is a peek into a future in which all BenQ displays will be optimizing display performance while maximizing blue light safety for consumers.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with BenQ to bring this groundbreaking technology to CES and to the world,” said Justin Barrett, co-founder and CEO of Eyesafe. “Eyesafe DTX was designed for human health. We are showing the industry that the era of blue light mitigation at the expense of color performance is now a thing of the past. This is a significant leap in terms of how we as an industry think about blue light and rich, vivid display. It’s no long a question of ‘either’ or ‘or’ – now it’s a matter of ‘and’ and ‘plus'”.
Eyesafe DTX is a novel approach that uses and recycles high-energy blue light within the display stack to reduce toxicity while boosting display performance. Unlike other LED solutions, this technology is customised to match the specific needs of each brand or manufacturing partner. Furthermore, unlike other common ways to reducing hazardous blue light emissions, Eyesafe DTX is the only solution developed in collaboration with the world’s leading optometrists and ophthalmologists.
“Congratulations to BenQ for its leadership,” said Dr. David Friess, a world-renowned optometrist who leads the Eyesafe Vision Health Advisory Board, a group of optometrists and ophthalmologists from across the globe. This board advises Eyesafe on the evidenced-based health requirements and standards for blue light emissions. “BenQ clearly understands the need for blue light mitigation solutions, and they are on the forefront of this important public health concern. We commend the leadership of BenQ for taking such a strong stand on blue light protection.”
Credentialed members of the media will be able to get an early peek at the BenQ Eyesafe DTX monitor on January 4 during the Venetian Hotel’s Innovation Showcase. The monitor will be on display for CES attendees from January 5 to 8. Please contact us to arrange a private, in-person demonstration in the Eyesafe Suite at the Westgate Hotel.
