Philips LightFrame LCD Eases Eye Strain Thru Light Therapy

Philips designed the LightFrame 220XW9 widescreen LCD display in similar fashion to their line of Ambilight technology televisions with a peripheral lighting system which eases eye strain and perhaps the blues, using a cool halo of blue light similar to full spectrum lights used to treat seasonal disorder...

Unlike the Ambilight televisions, the 22" Philips LightFrame 220XW9FW doesn't change various colours to match those being displayed, but they've brought on an actual medical practitioner to vouch for the system's utility against eye fatigue:

Dr. A. Johnson's study concluded: "…a significant proportion of people performing computer tasks prefer working with Philips LightFrame compared to working without it. The common reason given for their preferences is that LightFrame helps them concentrate and makes them feel less tired and more rested."

The 22-inch Philips 220XW9 widescreen LCD monitor is available in a piano white finish, features Philips SmartImage (system which changes contrast, colour saturation, response time and sharpness dynamically in relation to image), 2ms response time, and dynamic contrast ratio of 12,000:1.
