LG Display’s OLED TV and monitor panels have been awarded the Circadian Friendly certification by TÜV Rheinland, making them the first-ever displays to acquire this certification,.
The Circadian Friendly certification is assigned to products that successfully minimize their influence on users’ quality of life throughout the day and aid in improved sleep at night. Products are put through stringent testing based on the Circadian Stimulus metric, devised by the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. LG’s self-emissive OLED TV and monitor panels are now certified as having the least impact on viewers’ biological patterns, while still maintaining high picture quality. They have reached the top rating of the Certification Scheme for display panels with a Circadian Friendly Level (CFL) 1.
Circadian rhythm, the 24-hour biological cycle in humans, can be negatively affected by nighttime use of TVs or smartphones. This disruption can lead to several health issues, including sleep disorders.
