Class-leading monitors reduce blue light emissions by up to 70%
Manila, Philippines (30th July, 2015) — ASUS today announced that 26 ASUS monitors have been certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue light — more than any other monitor brand. The latest ultra-low blue light monitors feature four filter settings to reduce blue light emissions by up to 70%. In addition, 28 monitors have also been certified flicker-free by TÜV Rheinland. This full range of ultra-low blue light monitors is designed to reduce blue light emissions and onscreen flicker for a comfortable viewing experience. TÜV Rheinland is a professional certification organization and the world’s leading authority on display testing. The company has developed a display-specific standard (2PfG) for low blue light and flicker-free testing and measurement.
“ASUS has taken a further step forward with its range of ultra-low blue light and flicker-free monitors. Among all monitor brands, ASUS monitors have received the most number of TÜV low-blue light and flicker-free certifications.” said Derek Hsu, TÜV Rheinland Taiwan’s electrical display project manager. “ASUS has combined TÜV’s monitor testing technology with its solid research expertise to create monitors that provide the optimal balance between accurate color and eye care. It certainly demonstrated its aspirations of developing products with the well-being of users in mind.”
26 TÜV Rheinland certifications for low-blue light emissions – the highest for any monitor brand
To date, ASUS monitors have received 26 TÜV Rheinland certifications for low-blue light emissions — the most for any monitor brand. ASUS ultra-low blue light monitors reduce blue light emissions by up to 70% to reduce the possibility of fatigue, eye strains, and headaches.
After extensive research, ASUS engineers have determined the right amount of blue light reduction required for various tasks. The latest monitors feature four different Blue Light Filter settings. Level 1 is designed for web browsing and reduces blue light by 20% with minimal color shift. Level 2 is for viewing photos and videos, and reduces blue light emissions by 30%. Levels 3 and 4 reduce blue light by 50% and 70% for long periods of reading and viewing in dim environments respectively. Users can easily access these modes via an intuitive onscreen display (OSD) menu.
28 TÜV Rheinland certifications for flicker-free
ASUS monitors have received a total of 28 TÜV Rheinland flicker-free certifications. ASUS Flicker-Free technology uses Smart Dynamic Backlight Adjustment to reduce flicker by avoiding low brightness levels that lead to high-speed LED backlight cycling. Monitors with ASUS Flicker-Free technology help prevent eye fatigue, irritation, or strains, so users can work on spreadsheets, play games, or watch videos comfortably for hours on end.

The latest ASUS ultra-low blue light monitor range protects users from harmful blue light emissions.
