TIPS
• Using this monitor’s screen-size switching or dual-screen display functions to compress or expand the screen for commercial
or public viewing in establishments like cafes or hotels may infringe on the rights of the creators, as protected by Copyright
Law, so please be careful.
• When “Enlarge” is set, the screen size is fixed to “WIDE” mode.
• When dual-screen display is selected, the screen size cannot be changed.
• The appearance of the original video may change if you select a screen size with a different aspect ratio than the original
image (e.g. TV broadcast or video input from external equipment).
• When an ordinary non-wide image (4:3) is viewed with the whole screen using the screen-size switching function of this
monitor, the edge of the image may be lost or appear distorted. If you wish to respect the creator’s intentions, set the screen
size to “NORMAL”.
• When playing commercial software, parts of the image (like subtitles) may be cropped. In this case select the optimal screen
size using the screen-size switching function of this monitor. With some software, there may be noise or distortion at the
edges of the screen. This is due to the characteristics of the software, and is not a malfunction.
• Depending on the original image size, black bands may remain at the edges of the screen.

Advanced operation
This section explains commands for daisy chain connection.
The basic communication procedure is the same as in the
“One-to-one connection with a PC” section.
nID numbers
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see
page 11). This allows you to control a particular monitor in a
daisy chain of monitors.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen (using
the remote control) or from the PC using RS-232 cable.
[Example]
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute commands like “Set the volume of the monitor with
ID 4 to 20”.
When controlling monitors linked in a daisy chain by
designating ID numbers, you should basically avoid any
duplication of ID numbers.
ID numbers do not have to be assigned in ascending order
starting from the PC. They can also be connected as shown
below.
[Example]
ID number: 3
When RS-232C/LAN SELECT is set to LAN
U
• When executing ALL RESET, set the timeout period to 30
seconds or longer.
• When turning the power on while the POWER ON DELAY
function is in use, set the timeout period to the POWER ON
DELAY period + 10 seconds or longer.

nCommands for ID control
The command examples shown on this page assume the
following connection and ID number set up.
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
IDST..........A monitor receiving this command sets its own ID
number in the parameter field.
Example:
IDST0001
OK
001 ← The ID number of this monitor is set to 1.
IDLK.........The parameter of this command sets the ID
number of the monitor. The monitor is subject to all
subsequent commands.
Example:
← with ID number: 2.
WAIT
←
OK
002
ID number: 1
Sets volume of monitor with ID
← number: 2 to 30.*
WAIT
← Processing
OK
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
OK
002
Sets volume of monitor with ID
← number: 2 to 20.*
IDST001 +
← ID setting command with repeater control
WAIT
OK
001
← “OK” response from ID number: 1
OK
002
← “OK” response from ID number: 2
OK
003
← “OK” response from ID number: 3
OK
004
← “OK” response from ID number: 4 (End)
IDSL.........The parameter of this command sets the ID number
of the monitor. The monitor is subject to the next
command.
Example:
IDSL0002
←
The next command is for the monitor
with ID number: 2.
WAIT
←
Searching for monitor with ID number:
2
OK
002
← Found monitor with ID number: 2
Sets volume of monitor with ID
number: 2 to 30.
VOLM0030
←
WAIT
← Processing
OK
002
OK response from monitor with ID
← number: 2
VOLM0020
← Sets volume to 20.
OK
← number: 1 (the one directly connected
001
The volume of the monitor with ID
to the PC) is set to 20.*
* The IDSL command is effective only once, for the
immediately succeeding command.
002
IDLK0000
← Canceling fixed ID number setting
WAIT
← Canceling IDLK
OK
002
← Cancelation complete
VOLM0010
OK
20
← Found monitor with ID number: 2
WAIT
You can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST
command with the Repeater control (see “Repeater control”
on page 21).
For example, using the command “IDST001+” automatically
sets the ID numbers, as shown below.
[Example]
E
Searching for monitor with ID number:
2
VOLM0030
VOLM0020
TIPS
Following commands are for the monitor
IDLK0002
001
The volume of the monitor with ID number:
← 1 (the one directly connected to the PC) is
set to 10. (IDLK is canceled.)
* The IDLK command remains effective until it is
canceled, or power is shut off.
IDCK.........Provides screen display of the ID number currently
assigned to a monitor, and the ID number currently
set for IDLK (if any).
Example:
(After executing IDLK0002)
← (Parameter has no meaning.)
IDCK0000

← Repeater control. (If a command
is used with repeater control, ID
designation using IDSL or IDLK
is canceled.)
Controlling the Monitor with a PC (RS-232C)
nRepeater control
This system has a function to allow setting of multiple
monitors connected in a daisy chain using a single command.
This function is called repeater control. You can use Repeater
control function without assigning ID numbers.
[Example]
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3

Setting of the GAMMA user data
nTo transfer the GAMMA user data
Use the user data transfer commands (UGRW, UGGW and
UGBW). For each of the R, G and B colors, divide the total
512 pieces of user data into 16 blocks, and transfer 32 pieces
of data with each command.
C1
C2
C3
Command field
* If monitors are connected as shown above, you can
execute a command like “Set all monitors’ input settings to
PC D-SUB”.
← Sets volume of all monitors to 30.
In repeater control, responses are returned by all the
connected monitors.
If you want to determine that a value has been returned by a
specific set, assign ID numbers to each monitor in advance.
When some monitors do not return their responses, the
probable cause is that the monitors could not receive the
command or command processing is not complete. Do not
send a new command.
Example: (When 4 monitors are connected, and
assigned ID numbers: 1 through 4)
VOLM030 +

* The checksum field is the character string (ASCII) data of
lower-order one byte which indicates the sum of the block
number and 32 pieces of data in hexadecimal (0 to F).
nSaving the GAMMA user data
Use the user data save command (UGSV) to save the
transferred user data in the monitor.
If the data is not saved, it will be cleared when:
• The main power switch is off
• STANDBY MODE is LOW POWER and the monitor enters
standby mode
nChecking the GAMMA user data
Use the user data read commands (UGRR, UGGR and
UGBR) to return 512 pieces of user data for each of the R,
G and B colors. Divide the data into 16 blocks and return 32
pieces of data with each command. The value to be returned
is not the value stored in the monitor, but the value in the
temporary memory for display. (These values are the same
when the user data save command (UGSV) above has been
sent.)
