ZAGG has updated and renewed its license for the Eyesafe portfolio of blue light filter technology and intellectual property (IP).
Eyesafe claims to be the world’s leading provider of blue light management and color performance for the consumer electronics industry, and its technology has recently been used by companies such as DELL, HP, TCL and Lenovo.
Eyesafe claims that many other technologies miss the mark by only blocking UV (ultraviolet) light or blue light but distorting the color. They say there is only one technology in the field today that effectively and efficiently removes high energy visible blue light while maintaining superior color and display performance.
The updated agreement between ZAGG and Eyesafe expands Eyesafe solutions within the ZAGG portfolio and offers ZAGG retail exclusivity for screen accessory solutions such as the InvisibleShield screen protectors.
