Precautions when Viewing 3D Video
z
The 3D effect may be experienced differently depending on the viewer. You may not notice the 3D
effect at all if you have a prescription for one eye that is very different from the other eye.
z
When viewing a 3D video under a fluorescent lamp or 3-wavelength lamp, you may notice a small
amount of screen flickering.
z
Interference may cause the 3D glasses to malfunction if there is any other 3D product or
electromagnetic device (a microwave or a device that uses 2.4 Ghz-bandwidth frequency such as an
Internet router) turned on nearby. If an unintended operation of the 3D glasses occurs, it is best to
remove other electromagnetic devices or wireless communication devices nearby.
z
Visually-sensitive viewers may notice a slight screen flickering when viewing bright images in 50Hz,
3D video.
z
Right after the monitor powers on, the left and right sides of 3D pictures may overlap more than
usual. It may take a little time until the picture quality is optimized.
z
In some countries, strong flickering may be experienced from the 3D glasses depending on the
ambient light intensity. To minimize flicker when viewing a 3D picture, dim the light or change the
frequency on the PC to 50Hz or 100Hz.

The amount of energy saved by the Eco Motion Sensor, Eco Light Sensor, and Eco Saving
functions will accumulate and the progress can be viewed as a growing energy tree.
The energy tree grows as the energy savings of the monitor accumulate. Accordingly, the
tree's growth will also be affected by other functions that involve power consumption such as
the brightness control function.
z
The amount of energy savings accumulated by the Eco Motion Sensor, Eco Light Sensor,
and Eco Saving functions will be represented as an amount of carbon dioxide.

A complete energy tree will be displayed when the amount of energy savings accumulates to as
much as the amount of carbon dioxide a tree absorbs in a year.

with other household waste at the end of their working life. To prevent possible harm to
the environment or human health from uncontrolled waste disposal, please separate
these items from other types of waste and recycle them responsibly to promote the
sustainable reuse of material resources.
Household users should contact either the retailer where they purchased this product,
or their local government office, for details of where and how they can take these items
for environmentally safe recycling.
Business users should contact their supplier and check the terms and conditions of the
purchase contract. This product and its electronic accessories should not be mixed with
other commercial wastes for disposal.

Appendix
Terminology
OSD(On Screen Display)
On screen display (OSD) allows you to configure on-screen settings to optimize the picture quality as
required. It allows you to change the screen brightness, tint, size and many other settings using
menus displayed on the screen.
Gamma
The Gamma menu adjusts the grey scale that represents middle tones on the screen. Adjusting the
brightness brightens the whole screen, but adjusting Gamma only brightens the medium brightness.
Grey scale
Scale refers to levels of color intensity that show variations of color change from darker areas to
brighter areas on the screen. Changes to the screen brightness are expressed with black and white
variation, and grey scale refers to the medium area between black and white. Changing the grey scale
through Gamma adjustment will change the medium brightness on the screen.
Scanning rate
Scanning rate, or refresh rate, refers to the frequency of screen refreshes. Screen data is transmitted
as it refreshes to display an image, although the refreshing is invisible to the naked eye. The number of
screen refreshes is called scanning rate and is measured in Hz. A scanning rate of 60Hz means that
the screen refreshes 60 times per second. The screen scanning rate depends on the performance of
the graphics cards in your PC and monitor.
Horizontal Frequency
Characters or images displayed on the monitor screen consist of numerous dots (pixels). Pixels are
transmitted in horizontal lines, which are then arranged vertically to create an image. The horizontal
frequency is measured in kHz and represents how many times horizontal lines per second are
transmitted and displayed on the monitor screen. A horizontal frequency of 85 means that the
horizontal lines that make up an image are transmitted 85 000 times per second, and the horizontal
frequency is indicated in 85kHz.
Vertical Frequency
One image is made of numerous horizontal lines. The vertical frequency is measured in Hz and
represents how many images can be created per second by those horizontal lines. A vertical
frequency of 60 means that an image is transmitted 60 times per second. The vertical frequency is
also called "refresh rate" and affects screen flicker.
Appendix
88
Appendix
Resolution
Resolution is the number of horizontal pixels and vertical pixels that form a screen. It represents the
level of display detail.
A higher resolution displays a greater amount of information on the screen and is suitable for
performing multiple tasks at the same time.
E.g. A resolution of 1920 x 1080 consists of 1,920 horizontal pixels (horizontal frequency) and 1,080
vertical lines (vertical resolution).
Plug & Play
The Plug & Play feature allows the automatic exchange of information between a monitor and PC to
produce an optimum display environment.
The monitor uses VESA DDC (international standard) to execute Plug & Play.
