在日前揭晓的2018年度日本G-Mark评选结果中，明基BenQ ScreenBar系列智能屏幕挂灯成功获得GOOD DESIGN AWARD的表彰。创设于1957年的日本G-Mark设计大奖（优良设计商品选定制度），是日本国内家喻户晓、具有高度影响力的设计奖项，也是全球四大国际性设计奖项之一。
受賞対象名：e-Reading Lamp [ScreenBar Series]
ScreenBar is a revolutionary lighting system. Simply hang it on your monitor to light up your desk without taking up any valuable space. With automatic dimmer and asymmetric optical design, ScreenBar illuminates the working space with just USB power, avoiding reflectively glare off your computer screen. On the standard version, light sensors and buttons for operating the lamp are integrated onto the thin lamp head. The plus version is designed with a desktop controller about the size of a coaster for faster lighting adjustment.
Research shows that we work on the computer for an average of 5.7 hours each day, and regarding current office environment, there is some problem as below: 1. People need sufficient lighting that makes them comfortable when reading screen and paper on desk. 2. Office space is smaller than ever, there is not enough space on desk for an extra lamp. From our user research: 1. 25% officer workers say that the brightness is insufficient when reading paper document. 2. 22% officer workers in Taiwan use task lamps. However there are problems with traditional lamps: incorrect brightness, limited space and screen reflection. So we want to provide office workers suitable lamp who work on the computer for long time.
ScreenBar is a lamp to be simply mounted on a monitor and light up the desk without taking up space.
To ensure that users can easily fasten ScreenBar on different monitors without tools and without damaging the surface, we analyzed the most common monitor specifications on the market. Then we repeatedly tested and adjusted the clip spring, the weight and friction, and finally designed a patented setup method applicable to 1-3 cm thick monitors of any material and design. And to address issues of eye fatigue and other illnesses caused by unevenly distributed light or reflection from desk lamps on the market, we used a real-life model and computer software to repeatedly simulate the angle of LED lights, the light source distribution, and reflective materials. These simulations led to our creating a light source design that is suitable for computer monitors in working environments.
