Flicker free

Traditional LED screens flicker over 250 times per second, at a frequency that is not perceivable to the naked eye. This can cause dryness, headaches and eye sensitivity over long usage periods. ViewSonic has integrated a Flicker Free backlight circuit to alleviate this, resulting in more comfortable display usage.

Blue light filter

Radiation from the blue-violet light spectrum is harmful to our eyes. ViewSonic's Blue Light Filter moderates blue light output, reducing eye irritation and fatigue for improved viewing comfort.
