Most of us have experienced trouble sleeping at times, but if sleep problems are regular occurrences, your computer screen might be a part of the cause.
Recent studies show that blue light, a short-wavelength light, emitted by smartphones, tablets, laptops and computer screens is impacting Circadian Rhythms, a part of your body's natural time-keeping system, including sleep and wakefulness.
So, do you need to cut blue light completely? No we need blue light to get us going in the morning, and it has been linked with higher levels of alertness. In the night before going to bed, you may want to avoid blue light that leads to less sleep and poorer quality sleep.
As a visual technology company, EIZO has been incorporating visual ergonomic features into our monitors for years. In 2014, we introduced a “Circadian Dimming” feature to our ScreenManager Pro software. This feature controls the change in color temperature of the monitor throughout the day. As the evening approaches, the color temperature is lowered, decreasing the blue light emission from the monitor. The Circadian dimming feature is available with the EIZO FlexScan EV series of LCD monitors listed below.
FlexScan EV Series equipped with “Circadian Dimming”
OS Requirements: Windows 10 (32-bit / 64-bit), Windows 8.1 (32-bit / 64-bit ), Windows 8 (32-bit / 64-bit), Windows 7 (32-bit / 64-bit)
How to use the “Circadian Dimming” feature
