• Lifestyle TVs receive “Glare-Free” verification from UL and “Eye Care” certification from VDE in Germany
• Twenty new QLED models named the world’s first “Pantone Validated” displays
Samsung Electronics today announced that its QLED and Lifestyle 2022 TVs have been recognized by the world’s leading certification institutes for eye safety and color technology. The news comes as the company announced its new QLED and Lifestyle TVs at CES 2022.
Samsung Lifestyle 2022 televisions have won Eye Care certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE) in Germany, one of the largest technical-scientific associations in Europe with over 36,000 members. The certification applies to Samsung Lifestyle 2022 TV models, including The Frame, The Serif and The Sero. Displays are rated according to various categories including “Safety”, “Easy on the eyes”, flicker level, consistency and color fidelity.
The new Lifestyle TVs have been assessed for their safety against blue light emission levels and melatonin inhibition based on a light hazard classification method defined by the Electrotechnical Commission international (IEC). Samsung Lifestyle 2022 TVs meet IEC standards for screen flicker, which can cause eye strain or headaches for viewers. They have also been recognized for excellence in color fidelity and uniformity of picture quality, both of which contribute to the level of eye comfort when watching TV.
Samsung Lifestyle 2022 TVs1 have also been verified as “glare free” by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a leading independent company in the field of security science. UL’s verification validates the “Glare Free” statement by rating products against the Unified Glare Rating (UGR) test standard set by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE). Samsung’s new Lifestyle TV models use a new matte display with anti-glare, anti-glare and anti-fingerprint properties to deliver the optimum brightness and the best picture quality without glare.
- Reflected Glare, which determines whether objects on a TV screen are visible even when external light is reflected off the surface
- Incomfort Glare, which determines if a TV screen is too bright
- Disability Glare, which determines if a TV screen is too bright when watching TV in a dark room
These glare ratings were calculated based on the results of testing television both at 300 lux, which equates to a well-lit working area, and at 70 lux, which is generally the value for a dimly lit work area.
Additionally, Samsung’s all-new QLED 2022 models have received the world’s first “Pantone Validated” certification from Pantone, the world-renowned brand in the global color industry and creator of the Pantone Matching System (PMS).
Those models receiving this recognition from Pantone include the 20 new models – 15 QLED TVs in 4K and 8K and five monitors. Samsung’s 2022 QLED TV line-up has been recognized for its precise expression of 2,030 Pantone colors and 110 newly added skin tones.
“As televisions increasingly become a hub of home entertainment, there is an increasing demand for displays with industry-leading picture quality that minimize eye strain,” said Seokwoo Yong, vice-president. Executive Chairman and R&D Team Leader, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “This recognition from the world’s leading institutes validates our technology which provides the best images in its class as well as the most comfortable viewing experience. “
