SINGAPORE, JUNE 17, 2019 BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations, proudly announced the release of the GW2480T, a 24-inch comprehensive eye-care monitor suitable for middle school students in digital learning, as small displays of laptops and tablets might affect students’ vision and bone development.
“With the advent of tablets and laptops, screen time conspicuously increased in our daily life, not only in the workplace, but even more so in classroom where digital learning is gaining pace. Many young children with vision related symptom are on the rise, which makes parents pay more attention to their children’s eyesight.” said Jeffrey Liang, President of BenQ Asia Pacific. BenQ has been devoted to developing eye-care technology for many years, and believes that the application of the technology can help students reduce the risk of potentially developing myopia or other vision problems.
As digital learning has become an inevitable trend, younger students tend to use laptops or tablets for coding or programming courses. Small displays might affect students’ vision and bone development in the long term due to improper sitting posture and short viewing distance. GW2480T’s eye-care technology with ergonomic design provides a full range of vision care solutions. The 24-inch screen aligns with an optimal viewing distance of 60~70 cm, along with the height adjustment function with an extensive range of height, tilt, pivot, and swivel monitor adjustments, all of which ensure that students grow and learn at the proper viewing distance and with the correct sitting posture.
GW2480T’s eye-care technology includes Flicker-Free Technology, Low Blue Light Technology, Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I. Tech.), and Color Weakness Mode. Flicker-Free Technology removes screen flicker and reduces eye fatigue by decreasing the contraction in the ciliary muscles of the eyes. Low Blue Light Technology effectively filters out harmful blue light that suppresses melatonin for both good sleep quality and eye health. The Color Weakness Mode gives students a better perception of natural color by offering filters for red color deficiency (or protanomaly) and green color deficiency (deuteranomaly).
The GW2480T is equipped with BenQ’s exclusive Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I. Tech.). The built-in ambient light sensor continually detects the brightness levels in the environment, and automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen to deliver the most comfortable viewing experience. With BenQ’s all-round eye-care monitor and exclusive B.I. Tech., students can concentrate on their studies and use the screen for longer periods of time for better digital learning experiences.
