With health related problems at schools on the rise, BenQ has incorporated a range of health-focused technologies into its line-up of interactive flat panels (IFPs) to prevent students’ health from being compromised in smart classrooms.
Studies have repeatedly shown that students’ health could be at higher risk in today’s interactive classrooms. Since schools have long been an environment with high population density and constant physical contact, these conditions benefit the growth and spread of different kinds of germs. These factors pose serious threats to students’ health, and it could even lead to serious symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting or epidemics. Apart from that, repetitively touching screens can increase the likelihood of cross infection among students.
The BenQ interactive flat panel is empowered by a Germ-Resistant Screen that makes it ideal for riskless teaching environments. The Germ-Resistant Screen is empowered by a multilayer coating of the non-toxic, enduring nano ionic silver agent which can kill most bacteria and virus on contact by disrupting their cell division mechanism. The non-toxic ionic silver has passed strict food safety tests and mucous-membrane irritation tests to prove that it is both nonirritant and completely harmless to human bodies. Additionally, the ionic silver’s antimicrobial feature remains effective even after thorough cleaning or long periods of use. This can effectively prevent the spread of bacteria and virus in your classroom and guarantee healthy learning environments.
On the other hand, blue light from sunlight, display monitors and fluorescent lamps has also proved to be harmful to the eyes of students. Short-wavelength, high energy blue light can scatter more easily than other visible light, making it harder to focus. When students stare into interactive screens and other digital devices that emit significant amount of blue light, this unfocused visual "noise" will reduce contrast and lead to digital eye strain. Research has shown that it could also cause myopia, macular degeneration or sleeping disorders.
Smart Eye-Care Solution
BenQ’s IFPs have developed a series of smart eye-care solutions, such as Anti-Glare, Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light technologies, for students to combat possible side effects caused by different harmful light sources, reflection and glare from display monitors.
- BenQ Anti-glare Displays reduce reflection and glare for the best classroom viewing experience without eye strain.
- BenQ TÜV-Certified Low Blue Light Technology minimizes the risks of blue light exposure, which directly lead to myopia and macular degeneration. It allows teachers to create the most comfortable and efficient viewing experience for themselves and students.
- BenQ TÜV-Certified Flicker-Free Technology eliminates backlight flickering to reduce CVS-related eye problems and discomfort caused by looking at screens all day.
The Smart Eye-Care Solution can function intuitively with the help of the embedded motion sensor. When connected to devices running Android OS, IFPs will set the screen brightness for ease of viewing. When connected to PCs, IFPs will automatically activate the Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light features.
