Joy of Arc in e-Reading

We are welcoming the second era of reading, where reading across various screens has become the dominant way in which people read.

While reading on screens brings convenience and entertainment, the right lighting for screen reading have never really been addressed or met. Due to the reflection and contrast glare caused by unadjusted lighting, readers' eyes can tire and experience discomfort, which is why BenQ's lighting team decided to create an illumination solution that cares about every aspect of your e-Reading experience.

Quick Prototyping

Finally, this diligent effort culminated into one single shape: an ARC, which is destined to solve all lighting problems.
The smooth and inspiring shape resembles the smile which was on everyone's face at the project wrap-up.

Here comes the WiT,

the lamp featuring Smile Curve Technology, that makes your e-Reading sessions more comfortable and pleasant.

Smile Curve Tech

WiT shapes the smile that you read with.

WiT's uniquely curved shape is the epitome of function merging with aesthetics. Compared to traditional lamps, WiT delivers light evenly across your entire e-Reading area, eliminating the contrast glare and enabling the user to flexibly adjust the brightness and color temperature (2700K-5700K).

Wide

Wide 90cm lighting range - As you want it

The Smile Curve Technology lights up an expansive 90cm range, 150% wider than typical lamps on the market, and brings 500 lux of illuminance to your desk. WiT can illuminate your reading world more evenly and with a wider spectrum.

Intelligent

Smart e-Reading mode - As you need it

With just one touch on the ring, the e-Reading mode is activated, the built-in ambient light sensor detects the environment's lighting conditions and WiT delivers the patented 'brighter at the sides, darker in the middle' illumination to reduce the contrast glare and the reflection on your screens.

Tailor-Made

Dimmable cool white and warm white - As you wish it

Simply turn the rotary knob to easily fine-tune the color temperature and the brightness to suit your reading needs. Go with a cooler temperature for your problem-solving tasks; go with the warmer tones for relaxing.

Aesthetics Outside, Technology Inside

A. Flicker-free LED driver IC offers constant and even lighting

B. Ambient light sensor detects environment illumination

C. Curved light guide module widens the illumination area

D. The LED complies with the IEC/EN62471 photobiological safety regulation, assuring your eyes' safety while using the WiT

Highly Flexible: Bring the Right Light to Where You Need It

Thanks to the bespoke ball-joint that optimizes the flexibility of the lamp cap, you can have the right light at any angle that you need it. The WiT is also equipped with extremely durable torque springs and precise friction control to counter-balance the weight.

Eco-Friendly Material - Good for You and Good for the Earth

The light cap utilizes lightweight aluminum alloy to dissipate the heat generated by the LED, thereby extending the lifespan of the LED over typical plastic caps. For torque springs, zinc alloy is used to enhance the stability and durability. All WiT materials meet the restrictions in the EU Directive, RoHS (2002/95/EC). The WiT has passed international safety standards certification to ensure your safety.
