The display-standard specialist group TÜV Rheinland has announced its new Dynamic Privacy Filter certification, and that 2021's ThinkPads X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga are the first 2 devices to officially match up to it. The 2 business PCs have done so by passing a battery of tests on their ability to protect sensitive data under a variety of lighting conditions.

The latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga launched with 16:10 UHD or FHD LCD displays. Now, they can add TÜV Rheinland's new Dynamic Privacy Filter standard for laptop displays to this up-to-date spec. The new certification is based on the "objective measurement and subjective analysis" of a given device's ability to keep on-screen contents safe from off-angle view.

This testing also incorporates scenario-specific privacy-modelling, as well as the assessment of a given display-privacy setting in terms of its visuals, reliability, and user guide - not to mention its ability to be switched on and off at will (which is the definition of "dynamic" in this context).

Therefore, a badge indicating a pass in these new tests might well emerge as a desirable feature in next-gen enterprise laptops: even remote workers might need to keep work files confidential around interruption-prone family members.

TÜV Rheinland has conferred the inaugural Dynamic Privacy Filter awards on the X1 Carbon Gen 9 and X1 Yoga Gen 6 in March 2021, accepted by Lenovo's Executive Director of Commercial Notebooks, Sohichi Yokota, and Senior Manager of Commercial Notebook R&D and Certification Wang Minggang on behalf of the PCs.

Besides their new adjustable privacy certifications, the convertible and laptop offer a variety of security-focused features to their target market. They include fingerprint readers, dedicated second-gen TPMs and physical shutters for their Windows Hello-ready IR webcams.

X1 Carbon Gen 9s are available direct from Lenovo

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
