Taiwanese electronics company BenQ has announced the release of a new 24-inch comprehensive eye-care monitor — GW2480T — suitable for middle school students in digital learning with height adjustment feature.
The device has been developed keeping in mind the fact that small displays of laptops and tablets might affect students’ vision and bone development, the company said in a statement.
“All of us are aware of the changes that technology can bring to children’s learning. Though laptops and tablets are convenient, evidence shows that the number of young children with short-sightedness is increasing. This makes parents pay more attention to their children’s eyesight,” said Rajeev Singh, Managing Director of BenQ India.
“BenQ has been devoted to developing eye-care technology for many years, and believes that the application of technology can help students reduce the risk of potentially developing myopia or other vision problems,” Singh added.
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 short viewing distance and improper sitting posture.
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.
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.
In Addition, 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.
It is available on Amazon and offline stores at Rs 11,990.
