Information
Viewing
Regarding
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on them
should primarily be in the standard 4:3 ratio fomlat and constantly
moving. Displaying
stationat T graphics and images on screen, such as the dark top and bottom lettefl_ox bars
(wide screen pictures), should be limited to no more than 15% of the total television viewing
per week.
Wide screen fommt televisions (16:9, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view wide screen fin-mat full-motion video. The images displayed on
them should primarily be in the wide screen 16:9 ratio fommt, or expanded to fill the screen if
your model oilers this feature, and constantly moqng. Displaying stationary graphics and
images on screen, such as the dark side-bars on non-expanded standard fommt teleqsion qdeo
and programming, should be limited to no more than 15% of the total television viewing per
week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market reports, video
game displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics and patterns, should be limited as
desccibed above for all televisions. Displaying aW stationary images that exceed the above
guidelines can cause uneven aging qf picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle, but permanent
burned-in ghost images in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and
images, and primarily display.full screen moving images, not stationm3_ patterns or dark
bars. On television models that offer picture sizing features, use these controls to view the
different formats as a full screen picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television fommts used for viewing. Uneven CRT
aging as a resuh offormat selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered
by your Samsung lmfited warrant?_
