At CES 2021, Dell Announces All New XPS Notebooks are Eyesafe

Dell builds upon its market leadership position, confirming all new XPS laptops are Eyesafe


MINNEAPOLIS, USA // Jan 11, 2021 // Eyesafe, the world leader in low blue light display solutions. and Dell, a global market leader in consumer electronics, announced at CES 2021 that all new Dell XPS laptops are Eyesafe and have met the industry’s leading set of health-based, low blue light requirements for consumer electronics.

Now adopted by brands that represent 70% market share for notebooks and monitors, the Eyesafe® Display Standard will be a universal feature across the XPS line of notebooks.

In a discussion at CES 2021, Donnie Oliphant, Dell XPS Marketing Director, sat down with Arick Wierson to discuss the future for XPS and Dell’s revolutionary relationship with Eyesafe that has led to seismic changes in consumer electronics.

Stefan Peana, Dell Technologies Distinguished Engineer, Office of the CTO, also joined a roundtable discussion to share perspectives on the future of the industry and the topic of blue light.

“We worked diligently with the XPS 2-in-1, which was our first Eyesafe panel, and from there, we have been able to make each product Eyesafe,” shared Mr. Oliphant.

“The importance of getting Eyesafe to work with us is in its credibility and relationships with the healthcare community. We are in the educate mode and we want to do the right thing for our customers and their health. Our users are extremely finicky when it comes to front of screen performance. It took a while to get this perfected between the Dell, Dell Technologies and Eyesafe teams. This is about doing the right thing for all the people that are using our products,” added Mr. Oliphant.

“We will continue to improve this collaboration and to do future research. We believe this collaboration between clinical research and device development will help drive new technologies and solutions, as we understand more about the impact of blue light,” remarked Mr. Peana.

What makes the product solutions from Dell unique is they consider human health in the total design of the display, meeting the world’s leading standards for low blue light. To-date, Dell has introduced Eyesafe models across its XPS, G-Series and Alienware brands. A list of certified models can be found here.

About the Eyesafe® Display Standard

Supported by the Eyesafe® Vision Health Advisory Board, the Eyesafe® Display requirements are based on the growing body of research suggesting potential health impacts of blue light exposure, in addition to the consumer electronics industry requirements for accurate color performance. The Eyesafe® Display Standard has been developed to provide transparency to consumers and is further built upon existing standards and guidelines developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), Eyesafe and TÜV Rheinland.

Recent studies have shown growing concerns over potential long-term eye health impacts from digital screen usage and cumulative blue light exposure, in addition to recognized impacts of device use on circadian rhythms and sleep patterns. Blue light exposure research and studies on animals’ cells have shown that blue light in a range of 415 to 455 nm generated the greatest phototoxic risk to retinal pigment epithelium cells, with photoreceptor cell apoptosis seen early after the retina is damaged by blue light.
