Radiation Protection Is Standard from Sigma Although the jury deciding the effects of electromagnetic-field (EMF) radiation is still out, monitor manufacturers are taking preventive steps to reduce emission levels from part of the spectrum. All of Sigma Designs’ monitors now comply with the Swedish Very-Low-Frequency (VLF) emission standard at no extra cost. Monitors range from 15-inch single-page to 21-inch two-page monochrome, available for both IBM compatibles and the Macintosh. List prices are from $1,299 to $2,995. Other companies, such as Noano and Qume, also conform to the Swedish VLF emission standard, and more companies are expected to introduce VLF monitors in the near future.
