The World's First Lamp for e-Reading

BenQ WiT Genie features Wide lighting that covers up to a 90-cm range, which is 150% wider than typical lamps; Intelligent control to detect illuminance of the environment and deliver the best light to balance contrast glare; Tailored to your own brightness and colour temperature for different scenarios to suit your needs.

Time for e-Reading with a Smile

While reading from screens brings convenience and entertainment, the needs for the right lighting for screen reading have never really been met. Due to the reflection and contrast glare caused by unadjusted lighting causing discomfort for the reader's eyes, BenQ's decided to create an illumination solution that cares about your e-Reading experience.

Inspired by more than 1,800 hours of iterative design processes

Finally, this diligence and 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 wrap-up.

Smile Curve Tech
WiT Genie shapes the smile that you read with

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

Wide

Intelligent

Tailor-Made

Wide
Wider 90cm lighting range, as you want.

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

Intelligent
Smart e-Reading mode, as you need.

With just one touch on the ring to activate the e-Reading mode, the built-in ambient light sensor detects the light of the environment 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.

Simply turn the rotary knob, so you can easily fine tune the colour temperatures 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 to ensure it does not harm your eyes

Highly Flexible

WiT Genie has a ball-joint to optimise the flexibility of the lamp cap, while the highly durable torque springs and precise friction control counter-balance its weight. This means you can easily adjust the LED light to the angles that you need. 

※WiT Genie’s height to desk surface: 35 cm~50 cm

Eco-Friendly Materials

The light cap utilises a lightweight aluminium alloy to dissipate the heat generated by the LED, thereby extending the lifespan of the LED over typical plastic caps. For the torque springs, zinc alloy is used to enhance the stability and durability. All WiT materials meet the restrictions of the EU Directive, RoHS (2002/95/EC).

International Safety Standards

All BenQ WiT Genie materials meet the restrictions of the EU Directive, RoHS (2002/95/EC). The WiT Genie has passed international safety standard certifications to ensure your safety.
