Know the different types of Glares
Glare and its impact are categorized on the basis of the source from which the light emits, for more understanding refer to the below example:
‘Temporary Blindness caused by Bright light’, ‘Blurry vision’, ‘The view was obscured by lights’ — Though all three scenarios could be caused by glare. But not all glares are the same.
Glare is categorized into three types:
- Disability Glare,
- Discomfort Glare, and
- Reflection Glare.
Disability glare is the loss of retinal image contrast as a result of intraocular light scatter or stray light. A classic example is a sudden blindness due to oncoming headlights when driving at night.
Discomfort Glare basically refers to the glare which causes sudden eye fatigue and discomfort but not temporary vision loss. For instance, you might suffer discomfort glare when a soccer or baseball stadium suddenly turns on a strong light.
Reflection Glare obscures a monitor or a certain object by reflecting light from the ceiling.
This includes the reflection of fluorescent light on an office monitor or a situation where you can barely see your screen in sunlight.
Samsung’s Matte Display
ViewFinity S8 (Model name: S80PB) helps users to view accurate colors even in bright daylight. This is possible thanks to the Matte Display applied on ViewFinity S8 which reduces distraction caused by glare. Users now can edit and review content clearly with consistent levels of brightness and colors even without a monitor hood.
Samsung’s new high-resolution monitor, ViewFinity S8, will be available globally from the end of June, with launch schedules varying by region.
