LG Display’s OLED TV and monitor panels receive industry’s first ‘Circadian Friendly’ certification from TÜV Rheinland
LG Display (Seoul, Korea), the world’s leading innovator of display technologies, has announced that its OLED TV and monitor panels have earned the ‘Circadian Friendly’ certification from TÜV Rheinland, a leading global independent testing, inspection and certification body. The company’s OLED panels become the first displays to receive this certification, marking a groundbreaking achievement for the industry.
The ‘Circadian Friendly’ certification will be given by TÜV Rheinland to products that meet the standards of minimising their impact on people’s quality of life during the day and promote better sleep at night. These products undergo rigorous testing based on the ‘Circadian Stimulus’ metric, designed by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Lighting Research Center.
LG Display’s self-emissive OLED TV and monitor panels now officially have the lowest impact on the viewer’s biological pattern while still guaranteeing impeccable picture quality, achieving the highest rating of the Certification Scheme for display panel with a ‘Circadian Friendly Level (CFL) 1’.
“LG Display’s innovative OLED panels help people attain a healthier life while enjoying the immersive benefits of exceptional image quality,” said Frank Holzmann, Global Business Field Manager at TÜV Rheinland.
Circadian rhythm refers to the biological pattern occurring in humans during their 24-hour cycle. Using TVs or smartphones at night can have a detrimental impact on a person’s circadian rhythm which could potentially lead to various health conditions including sleep disorders.
LG Display’s OLED TV panel is widely recognised for emitting the lowest blue light in the industry while providing users with the best flicker-free viewing experience. The company's OLED became the world's first TV display to receive Eyesafe certification, which was developed jointly by TÜV Rheinland and Eyesafe Inc., a U.S. eye safety organisation, and also boasts the ‘Flicker Free Display (OLED)’ and ‘Discomfort Glare Free’ verification from UL, a leading global safety science company.
“LG Display’s self-emissive OLED technology not only offers unmatched picture quality but also reaffirms its position as a human-centric display through this highly sought-after certification,” said Soo-young Yoon, CTO and Executive Vice President at LG Display. “With a safe display more important to people than ever, we will continue to offer its customers the best viewing experiences by expanding and applying user-friendly technologies to its cutting-edge solutions.”
