Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of DoubleSight, an innovative dual
LCD monitor. DoubleSight is designed to harness your information
and computing power utilizing unique multiple monitor technology
that will enhance your viewing and productivity experience!
By connecting two 15-inch LCD monitor panels side-by-side and
using a single “smart” base stand, DoubleSight gives you large
monitor real estate in a small footprint at a very affordable price!
DoubleSight Features
A Clear View to Productivity
DoubleSight seamlessly displays as much data as a single 20-inch
monitor! You can have an instantly clear view of your programs and
documents instead of time-consuming switching between windows.
DoubleSight gives you speedy reactions to managing several sources
of information—and boosts your overall productivity by
approximately 20 to 50 percent! It’s that easy!
Cost-Effective Solution to Display Continuity
Investment in a single, large CRT or expensive LCD monitor is not
always effective. DoubleSight is designed to eliminate the wasted
desktop space and excess electricity usage typical with CRT monitors.
The powerful combination of DoubleSight’s productivity gains and
cost savings can give you a quick return on investment within weeks!
”Smart Control” Technology
DoubleSight gives you easy one-stop access for controlling dual
displays! An intuitive menu-driven on-screen display lets you select

User’s Manual
how you want to set up each LCD display. DoubleSight’s multiscreen control technology and industrial design employ a single
controlling motherboard that seamlessly manages and adjusts the
display of multiple monitors. By simply distributing or replicating
signals to both display panels, you have the ability to display a
different window on each monitor panel at the same time, or stretch
windows across two monitors so you can see more information
without scrolling. Imagine how easy it would be to use one monitor
to do research on the Web, and summarize your data in a Word
document on the other monitor panel.
Stylish, Yet Sturdy Design
DoubleSight combines a stylish appearance with a unique, light yet
sturdy design that requires a minimum of desk space. Its simplified,
slim flat design lets you choose to install DoubleSight on a desk, wallmount it or hang it from an office cubicle!
Contents in the Box
Your new DoubleSight monitor box* should contain the following:
• DoubleSight DS-15xx Dual LCD monitor

Introduction
Setting Up Your Monitor
Prior to setting up your DoubleSight monitor, it is important to select
a location where it will be stable and protected, yet convenient to use.
You will need a flat, hard surface, such as a sturdy desk or table,
located near a power outlet.
WARNING
To allow sufficient airflow and prevent overheating, do not block the
ventilation ports located on the rear of the monitor. Do not install the
monitor near heat sources, such as radiators or air ducts, or in
locations exposed to direct sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical
vibration or shock.
Connecting the Display to Base Stand
Remove the bottom layer of foam packing material in the box and
place on a flat surface. Remove the plastic wrapper bag from the
display. Using both hands, firmly grip each outer edge of the dual
display frame and place face down on top of the foam packaging.
This surface will provide a secure position for proceeding to the next
step.
11
User’s Manual
Holding the base stand handle, insert its three prongs (located on the
handle’s reverse side) straight down into the three holes on the
display’s back silver face plate. To secure the prongs into a locked
position, push the stand forward until it connects to the display
securely. Using both hands, firmly grip the combined display with
stand and place upright on a desk with the monitor’s back panel facing
you. Please ensure that the display and base are securely connected
before moving.
Push forward
Connecting the Monitor to a Computer
Locate the blue video signal adapter cables marked 1 and 2. With the
small monitor icon facing towards you, insert the blue VGA cable 1
into the monitor’s VGA-1 port (right), and then the VGA cable 2 into
the VGA-2 port (left). Tighten each of the blue screws to secure.
Next, locate the black power cable and insert it into the monitor’s DCIN port with the ↑ arrow icon facing towards you. Connect the
opposite end into a power outlet.

WARNING
Only use the correct power cord for your local voltage. The power
adapter included in the box automatically supports 100V~240V.
Depending on the configuration of your computer, there are different
methods for connecting it to your DoubleSight monitor. If your
computer already has two VGA ports, connect the opposite ends of
the VGA 1 and 2 cables into each VGA port. If your computer has
one VGA port and a DVI port, you will need a DVI-VGA connector.

User’s Manual
•
Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light
sources to minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor
tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.
•
Use a document holder placed close to the screen.
•
Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the
screen or reference material) directly in front of you to
minimize turning your head while you are typing.
Ergonomics
To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the
following:
30
•
Use the preset Position and Image controls.
•
Use the preset Color setting.
•
Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate between
60-75Hz.
•
Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is
difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient
contrast.

you can use them without uneasiness.
DoubleSight Displays considers more than six
defective transistors per panel to be defective and
thus eligible for repair within a one-year warranty
period.
