Monitor Adjustments
This section explains how to use the
Glider control buttons to adjust the
clarity of the display and image
position on the screen. In particular
it discusses:
• The function of each of the
pushbutton controls.
• How to reset previously saved
settings or return to factory settings.
• Tips and techniques.
CONTROLS
The Glider control buttons allow the
user to control image position, clarity
and backlight operations; and to
store settings, and to revert to
previously-saved or factory-saved
settings.
The controls to adjust the screen
display are discussed in the next
section. The controls to reset the
settings are discussed in further detail
in the section titled “Saving Settings.”
RESET
Restores the setting to the factory
default.
H Pos
Moves the screen image to the left
17
Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
( H Pos
) or to the right
(H Pos
)
Monitor Adjustments
NOTE: The H Wd parameters must
be properly set in order for
the Clock settings to have
their desired effect. The
Clock settings are the final
fine tuning adjustments.
V Pos
Moves the screen image up or
down.
Clock
The “Clock
“ controls
move the sampling points left or
right while maintaining a fixed
distance between samplings.
These adjustments ensure that the
sampling occurs at the peak of the
input video signal (i.e. neither too
early nor too late), thus eliminating
any panel fuzziness or discoloration. When properly set, all
vertical lines on the panel should
look very crisp.
H WD
Increases
or
Decreases
the
horizontal screen size (width) by
reducing or enlarging the sampling distance to synchronize the
sampling frequency with the signal
frequency. When properly set, no
vertical banding will be noticeable.
Brt
Decreases or increases brightness
of the backlight.
SAVING SETTINGS
NOTE: Cycling the power without
the proper “wait time” will
cause the last value change
to be lost. The previous
setting will be restored
when power is returned.
To save the screen settings for use in
a future session, and through loss of
power or video signal, allow 5
seconds to pass between the last
adjustment and the time when power
is restored to the system. The display
will return with the values you had
last set when the power is restored.

Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
The Glider can store screen settings
for multiple resolutions, which is
especially useful when it is used with
a graphics card that supports a range
of resolutions. The resolutions
supported by the Glider include:
• 1280 x 1024, SXVGA
• 1024 x 768, XGA
• 832 x 624, Mac
• 800 x 600, SVGA
• 640 x 480, VGA
• 720 x 400, VGA Tet
• 640 x 400, PC9801
TIPS AND TECHNIQUES
Graphics cards create a wide variety
of screen resolutions. The Glider
needs to be “educated” to interact
properly with your system’s graphics
card. Once the Glider has been
educated, the settings can be saved
and the Glider will not need to be
adjusted again, unless the graphics
cards are changed.
This section provides a thorough
tutorial on adjusting the settings for
the Glider.
Unlike CRT’s, flat panel displays do
not require a high refresh rate for
better display quality. In some cases,
a high refresh rate may have a
negative effect on display quality. If
all display artifacts are not removed
by the following procedure, try a
lower vertical refresh rate setting on
the computer system’s graphics card.
19
Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
Monitor Adjustments
Step 1:
Power Up
After the installation instructions have
been followed:
• Turn on power to the computer/
workstation.
• Turn on power to the Glider.
The Glider will then:
• Illuminate the “Power” indicator
on the front panel.
• Perform self tests.
• Search for and automatically
determine the frequencies and sync
type of the incoming video signals.
• Illuminate the “stby” indicator on
the front panel while powering up
and searching for proper sync
signals.
• Extinguish the “Stby” indicator on
the front panel after acquiring
proper sync signals.
• Display the video image on the
screen.
Step 2:
If vertical adjustments are need on
the screen display, press the “SELECT” button until the “V Pos”
indicator is illuminated. Press either
the
button to raise the screen
image or the
button to lower
the screen image. In most cases, the
image can be adjusted precisely to
center.
NOTE: A black band at the top and
bottom of the display may
be visible at certain
resolutions. This is normal,
as the expanded screen in
some resolutions does not
precisely fit the Glider screen
dimensions.
20
Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
Adjust Vertical Position
Monitor Adjustments
Step 3:
Width
Adjust Horizontal
This is the critical step to ensure a
crisp screen image. For a Sharp
display, you must adjust the image so
that it fits precisely within the
boundaries of the screen.
To adjust the horizontal width:
1. Press the “SELECT” button until the
“H Wd” indicator is illuminated.
Alternately press the
and
buttons to “size” the screen image
to the exact width of the display.
Adjusting so that there are no
borders on either side of the
display may aid in this process.
2. As you approach the proper
horizontal setting, fuzzy vertical
“ghosting” bands will appear on
the screen. These can be very
subtle, depending on the image
being displayed.
3. As you continue to make horizontal width adjustments, these bands
will become wider and wider until
the entire screen becomes fuzzy all
over (i.e., no vertical bands), or
crisp all over.
Helpful Hint: A uniformly fuzzy
screen is often the last step before
locking on to the best screen image.
21
Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
Monitor Adjustments
Step 4: Adjust Horizontal
Po s i t i o n
Press the “SELECT” button until the “H
Pos” indicator is illuminated, then use
the
and
buttons to adjust
the horizontal position of the screen
left or right to center the screen
image.
Helpfut Hint:
When the screen is properly adjusted,
the left and right sides of the screen
will line up precisely with the left and
right sides of the panel. A single
push of the
button should cause
a very narrow band (one or two pixels
wide) to appear on the left side of the
screen. Similarly, a single push of
the
button should cause a very
narrow band (one or two pixels wide)
to appear on the right side of the
screen.
Step 5:
Adjust Clock
Once the appropriate adjustments
have been made, press the “SELECT”
button until the “Clock” indicator is
illuminated, then use the
and
buttons to obtain a
crisp screen.
22
Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
To adjust the screen for the best
possible display, try the following:
• Press the
and
buttons
until you have a universally fuzzy
screen.
• Count the number of
button
presses for the screen to go from
fuzzy to clear to fuzzy again.
NOTE: If at this point the screen
image is not crisp, repeat
Steps 2-4.
• Divide the number of presses by
two and press the
button that
many times to precisely end up at
the clearest setting.
• The clearest setting may also be
verified by visually monitoring the
screen while adjusting the settings.
Step 6:
Adjust Brightness
If the brightness adjustment is made
to maximize the display visibility, press
the “SELECT” button until the “Brt”
indicator is illuminated, then use the
and
buttons to increase/
decrease the display brightness. The
factory default setting is maximum
brightness.
NOTE: See “Saving Settings” earlier
in this manual for a
complete discussion of this
subject.
Step 7:
23
Doc# 27-0006UM Issued 11/00 Rev 1.0
Saving Adjustments
The screen settings will automatically
be saved as long as the power is
maintained for at least five seconds
after the last adjustment.

Interpolated Resolutions:
When resolutions are shown that are
lower than the pixel count of the LCD
module, text may appear choppy or
lines may appear to be bold. This is
normal and necessary for all current
flat panel technologies when displaying non-native resolutions full screen.
In flat panel technology, each dot on
the screen is actually one pixel, so to
expand resolutions to full screen, an
interpolation of the resolution must
be done. When the interpolated
resolution is not an exact multiple of
the native resolution, the mathematical interpolation necessary may cause
some lines to appear thicker than
others.

Y2K COMPLIANCE
Z Microsystems has achieved full Y2K Compliance.
In late 1997, the company’s senior management assigned a Y2K Project Team
that consists of a cross-functional representation from information technology,
procurement, manufacturing, test and development, finance, general affairs,
engineering, marketing and facilities organizations to address the Year 2000
issues.
The Assessment/Rectification Phase of the Year 2000 efforts and full compliance for all mission critical internal systems were accomplished as scheduled
by the end of Q1, 1999. Contingency development and validation of the
company’s overall Year 2000 readiness will continue through 1999.
The following strategically important categories have been assessed for Year
2000 readiness:
Suppliers and Service Providers Readiness.
All major strategic suppliers are assessed
to be Year 2000 compliant. Most of the
company’s service providers’ compliance
efforts will continue through 1999.
Major concerns and efforts will be focused
on the company’s shipping companies in
1999.
Z Microsystems Internal Systems
Z Microsystems Products
All mission critical internal systems are
determined to be fully Year 2000 Compliant. A few minor Year 2000 related issues
need to be addressed in 1999.
All Z Microsystems products are in full
compliance.
The company’s MIS has taken the lead and worked with the Finance Department to develop comprehensive Year 2000 Contingency Plans for the
company’s mission critical application systems to assure the continuity of daily
business.
