ASUS today announced VY series monitors with embedded antibacterial treatment and upgraded Eye Care Plus technology. Ideal for working or learning at home, the ASUS VY249HE and VY279HE monitors feature a new proprietary long-lasting antibacterial ionic silver treatment that’s applied to the screen-edge bezels and hotkeys to promote cleanliness and hygiene. Both the 23.8-inch VY249HE model and the 27-inch VY279HE model feature FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS panels with 75 Hz refresh rates, 1ms Moving Picture Response Times (MPRT) and AMD FreeSync technology. In addition, ASUS VY series monitors have passed ISO 22196: 2011 JIS Z 2801 certification, and each model features TÜV Rheinland certified Blue Light Filter and Flicker Free technology.
The VY249HE and VY279HE monitors feature improved ASUS Eye Care Plus technology to help reduce the risk of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), an ailment that causes vision-related problems resulting from prolonged viewing of monitor screens. In addition, ASUS Flicker Free technology helps reduce instances of onscreen flicker for a more comfortable viewing experience. Each monitor also includes new ASUS Blue Light Filter technology with a range of settings to suit various scenarios or personal preferences. A Rest Reminder feature offers pop-up notifications that can be set at 5-minute intervals to remind users to take a break from viewing.
Eye Care Plus technology also includes a new Color Augmentation feature. Color Augmentation helps users with a color-vision deficiency differentiate colors more easily.
Cutting Edge Monitors with Embedded Antibacterial Treatment
VY249HE and VY279HE feature new antibacterial-treated monitors designed for the home or office. The screen-edge bezels and hotkeys on each monitor include an embedded proprietary antibacterial treatment that’s long-lasting and scratch- and impact-resistant. This ionic silver treatment can inhibit the growth of bacteria — reducing it by more than 99.9% over a 24-hour period. This treatment has passed ISO 22196: 2011 and JIS Z 2801 antibacterial activity measurement tests, ensuring cleaner, safer surfaces and a more hygienic user experience.
Perfect for Work, Everyday Computing and Casual Gaming
The 23.8-inch VY249HE and 27-inch VY279HE feature FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS panels for bright and vivid imagery, making them ideal for work, everyday computing, casual gaming or viewing videos. The panels have 75 Hz refresh rates and 1 ms MPRT for smooth visuals, and integrated AMD FreeSync technology which eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates during casual gameplay.
