Samsung unveiled its first Neo QLED TV lineup earlier this year during CES 2021. The company’s new high-end TVs are based on the Mini-LED technology, and they are already being praised for deeper blacks, higher brightness, and improved local dimming. The company has announced that Neo QLED TVs are the first TVs in the industry to receive ‘Eye Care’ certification from VDE (Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker).
VDE is a well-regarded German electrical engineering certification institute, and its ‘Eye Care’ certification is assigned to products that are deemed safe for human eyes. All 2021 Neo QLED TVs—QN900, QN800, QN95, QN90, QN85, Q80, Q70, Q60—have received VDE’s ‘Eye Care’ certification, which includes ‘Safety For Eyes,’ ‘Gentle To The Eyes,’ flicker level, uniformity, and color fidelity assessments.
Products that receive the esteemed ‘Safety For Eyes’ certification emit safe levels of blue light, infrared rays, and ultraviolet rays, as per the classification of emission limits set by ICE (International Electrotechnical Commission). Devices that receive VDE’s ‘Gentle To The Eyes’ certification meet the CIE’s (International Commission on Illumination) standards for the amount of melatonin suppression.
Apart from these certifications, Samsung’s 2021 Neo QLED TV lineup has also received praise from VDE for picture color uniformity and color fidelity. The company’s new high-end TVs recently received the ‘Best TV of All Time’ award from German AV magazine Video. They are also great TVs for gaming as they have features like HDR10+, wide color gamut, a 120Hz refresh rate, variable refresh rate, auto low latency mode, Super Ultrawide GameView (32:9), and Game Bar.
Yonghoon Choi, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said, “As the global TV industry leader of 15 years’ standing, Samsung is fully committed to developing products that not only offer excellent picture quality but are also human-centric.”
