Amsterdam, 16 December 2014 – In its new display collection, AOC has found a way to reduce risks that go hand in hand with excessive time in front of screens. Therefore, the new 22" (55.9 cm) and 24" (61 cm) displays come with innovative technologies: Anti-Blue Light and Flicker FREE. Combatting health concerns such as retinal stress and macular degeneration, AOC’s Anti-Blue Light technology reduces harmful blue light by over 90 % without affecting colour fidelity. Furthermore, the Flicker FREE technology prevents users from eye fatigue, which can appear without the viewer even noticing.
Reducing blue light, keeping true colours
According to a substantial body of evidence, excessive exposure to the blue light of display devices causes retinal stress, which is directly related to the forming of age-related macular degeneration, or ARMD. The symptoms of this disease are deterioration or complete loss of the central vision. Past efforts towards diminishing displays’ harmful blue light were predominantly limited to software-based approaches and blocking out the blue light through filter mechanisms such as special spectacles or cover glass in front of screens. As a result, however, users had to accept negative effects on the colour fidelity. AOC’s new Anti-Blue Light models E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 are based on a special LED technology, which shifts the wavelength peak from harmful 450 nm to a safer 460 nm, which reduces harmful blue light by over 90 %, whilst ensuring that just the right amount of blue light is emitted for accurate colour reproduction.
Better health and well-being with Flicker FREE
User health is a challenge that display manufacturer AOC takes seriously. Therefore, alongside their innovative Anti-Blue Light technology, AOC’s new models E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 also come with a feature that ensures a zero flickering viewing experience. Flickering is a flashing effect that takes place when the LED backlight controller of a monitor adjusts the brightness levels during display refreshing. This can affect the eyes and cause eye fatigue without the viewer even noticing. Therefore, the Flicker FREE feature helps to reduce the various eye health concerns that can be caused by flickering.
Creating the perfect desktop experience
Besides the health-promoting benefits, the E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 come with a wide array of other helpful features. Accordingly, the especially light-weight models deliver 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution as well as vibrant, bright colours. For Android enthusiasts, they also boast an HDMI connector which offers MHL 2.0 (Mobile High-Definition Link) functionality. This means that smartphone and tablet screens can be mirrored directly onto the big 22″ or 24″ monitor screen. What is truly special about MHL 2.0 is that with only one cable, peripherals can be recharged while playing audio, video, and/or surfing on the internet at the same time. Also, both models come with extremely short pixel response times of 1 ms and 2 ms, making them perfect for working on, watching fast-paced action video clips or enjoying games.
AOC offers a 3-year warranty with on-site exchange service for both models.
The E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 with Anti-blue Light and Flicker FREE are available in stores now at a recommended retail price of £109 and £129 respectively.
