The 4Vu™ Privacy Screen is designed to fit 17” laptops with 5:4 ratio screens. To protect your information, tiny vertical blinds on the surface of the privacy screen narrow the viewing angle so data is only visible directly in front of the monitor up to 30° away from the center of the screen. Onlookers will only see a dark unclear screen when attempting to view the information from a side angle. In addition to providing security, the screen also blocks the glare to help reduce eye strain.
Highly portable and easy to use, the Targus privacy screen protects valuable information on a laptop and LCD monitor from onlookers. The Targus laptop 4VuTM Privacy Screen can be easily attached by using one of the four convenient methods provided.
Four Easy Installation Options
Quickly and easily attach the screen directly to your display using on the four convenient installation options.
Under bezel tabs: attach directly to a privacy screen and slide under the laptop bezel for a clean look.
Slide tabs: attach to the side of a laptop’s LCD frame to hold the privacy screen in place.
Long adhesive strips: stick on to the LCD screen for a firm, fixed hold.
Universal flexi-hinges: attach to the top of the privacy screen and over the top of the laptop to create a seamless on/off experience with a simple flip. Use the included adhesive lift tab, to easily flip from privacy mode to public mode without fingerprints. Two versions are provided: 1 for bezelled screens; 1 for infinity screens.
Tabs and long adhesives can be used up 50 times and are able to be cleaned with water or tape to remove any dust before reuse; flexi-hinges can flip over 1000 times.
30° Viewing Angle
Even in public places like hotel lobbies, airplanes, or cafes, the 4Vu Privacy Screen keeps your data safe from prying eyes. Your content is visible only to the person directly in front of the screen and up to 30° on either side. You have full clarity and visibility, while onlookers or passersby see only a black screen.
Reduced Glare, Even in Bright Rooms
Our anti-reflective coating reduces glare and improves light transmittance under most viewing conditions. The result is brightness that’s up to 12.4% higher than competitive privacy screens for comfortable, clear views.
Suited for Workplace or Personal Use
One study found that employees are 50% less productive when their visual privacy is at risk, and that two in three employees expose sensitive data outside the workplace1.
With more of us working in open office settings, on-the-go, or in unsecured environments, visual privacy is a critical consideration for employers and employees alike. Privacy screens add a layer of protection that encourages productivity at the same time it protects confidential information.
Blue Light Filtering
Current studies suggest that prolonged exposure to blue light — emitted by virtually every digital device we own — may be linked to eye strain and fatigue, headaches, retina damage, and other health concerns. The 4Vu Privacy Screen filters blue light to reduce eye strain and minimize the potentially harmful effects on your vision.
