Tech Data Offering Ocular Protector for Electronic Devices Through Distribution Agreement With Reticare

CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Reticare to offer their products and solutions to national retailers, select regional retailers, and wireless carriers in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Through the agreement, Tech Data will offer Reticare’s suite of shield screens, including the first-ever ocular shield designed to reduce the emission of energetic light from electronic device screens, to solution providers via its Tech Data Mobile Solutions division. The announcement was made in conjunction with Tech Data’s participation in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), being held this week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“As more consumers increase usage time on their devices, Tech Data is providing resellers with a product that will not only add protection to the screen of the device but also for the user,” said Patrick Stokes, vice president, Tech Data Mobile Solutions. “Reticare offers solution providers cutting-edge technology to grow their mobility portfolio and further accessorize the mobile products and solutions they offer end-user customers. This agreement reinforces our commitment to providing mobile resellers with solutions to profitably drive their businesses.”

Through the agreement, Tech Data is offering Reticare’s full portfolio of screen protectors compatible with smartphones, tablets, monitors, video game consoles, and laptops. Users can select between four different protection levels: intensive, high, medium and low, according to factors such as age and device exposure time.

Reticare screen protectors improve visual comfort, reduce eyestrain, and absorb part of the most energetic radiation of the light emitted by screens from electronic devices, intended to reduce sleep disorders associated with the light. Reticare ocular shields are compatible with a large variety of screens and can be integrated into a product or added after-market.

“Eighty percent of users already have symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome, such as eyestrain, headaches, blurry vision and dry eyes when using screens, which is why Reticare is a must-have product for users of electronic devices,” said Nilo García, Global CEO at Reticare. “In the U.S. market today, there are more than one billion screens without protection. Tech Data is the best partner possible to bring the market our protectors, which represent the best technology to protect human eyesight, while at the same time protecting screens from scratches to bring users a better sustainable experience.”
