How do I enable the energy saving function? file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (2 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions Go to 'My Computer' and select 'Control Panel' followed by "Monitor Control". Select "All default selection" and choose your Philips monitor model from the default driver list. Plug and Play will automatically enable the EPA tick box for you. In DOS or Windows 3.1, you must first make sure your PC supports power saving. 7. What is refresh rate? "Refresh rate" describes the number of times an entire screen is vertically scanned each second. In other words: If a monitor's refresh rate is 85 Hz, its screen is refreshed - or vertically scanned - 85 times per second. A higher refresh rate means better image stability and less flicker. A high refresh rate helps users who work long hours in front of a monitor avoid eye fatigue and stress. To change the refresh rate, go into "Start/Settings / Control Pannel / Display / Properties / Setting/Advance/Adaptor" Windows settings of the computer, the monitor will automatically adjust itself to the video card. 8. Why does the picture on the screen appear to flicker? A low refresh rate or electrical interference typically causes flickering in the picture. Possible solutions include the following: ● ● ● ● Verify that the proper drivers are installed for your video card Make sure that all electrical devices (such as mobile phones) are at least 1m from the monitor Place the monitor in another physical location away from electrical interference Adjust the refresh rate to 75hz or higher. 9. How do I adjust my monitor's resolution? Available resolutions are determined by the capabilities of your video card and graphic driver. Under Windows '95, you may select the desired available resolution through the 'Display properties/Settings' menu. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (3 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions 10.

What if I get lost when making monitor adjustments? Simply press OK button then select "Reset to factory settings" to restore all settings. 12. What is LightFrame ? LightFrame is a Philips technology breakthrough which offers a unique and revolutionary solution for boosting a monitor 's brightness and sharpness. With LightFrameTM, the user experiences TV quality performance for video or photos without deterioration to the monitor 's performance in windows used for other applications. 13. How does LightFrame work? LightFrame consists of a software application and an Integrated Circuit (IC) embedded in the monitor. Together, they boost brightness and sharpness in a user defined window or screen area. Unique LightFrameTM technology dramatically improves photo and video display quality. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (4 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions 14. Why is LightFrame important to me? With LightFrame , selected Philips monitors deliver TV quality video and photo display while maintaining monitor performance for text-based applications. The result is that movies and other video are brighter and livelier; photos are more vibrant and lifelike. 15. Will anyone else have this? LightFrame was invented, developed and patented by Philips. It is a unique feature that you will find exclusively in Philips monitors. 16. Will LightFrame shorten the life of a monitor? No. Extensive testing has confirmed LightFrame does not adversely affect monitor life. Today's state-of- the-art Philips monitors employ improved phosphors and are designed for high light output. LightFrame normally highlights photos and videos. Though the peak brightness of the highlighted area is strongly increased, the average brightness - a determining factor for cathode deterioration - is not normally increased. In any case, a special Automatic Beam Limiter (ABL) circuit keeps a monitor 's maximum average brightness within acceptable levels. 17. I get a message warning that my monitor 'may not support LightFrame monitor does. What is wrong? file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (5 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM '. I am certain my Frequently Asked Questions Only a Philips driver can determine if your monitor is equipped with LightFrame ; a generic Windows driver cannot. Install the special Philips driver that came with your monitor. If the warning continues to flash after your Philips driver is installed, ignore the message. LightFrameTM will function properly. 18. What will happen when my system is no longer connected to a LightFrame™ enabled monitor - for example, when I take my notebook on the road? Philips exclusive LightFrame feature requires the combined operation of hardware that resides in your monitor and software installed on your system. It only works when a monitor with built-in hardware receives commands from system software. Without both the LightFrameTM hardware equipped monitor and system software, the LightFrame does not function. 19. What is "XtraSpace Design" (XSD)? XSD stands for XtraSpace Design, a Philips breakthrough that reduces a CRT display device's footprint. Philips XSD monitors combine the world's smallest front-to-back footprint with excellent front of screen performance. 20. How did Philips achieve XtraSpace Design? Philips achieved this breakthrough in reduced footprint CRT display devices through short depth tubes and a focused design process that squeezed every excess millimeter out of XSD monitor desk space requirements. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (6 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions 21. What is Philips monitors' solution for audio? Not all users need multimedia capabilities. To give users freedom of choice, Philips provides an optional Multimedia Base (type number: 6G3B10). The Multimedia Base replaces the easily removable standard pedestal of the monitor. 22. Which models can be incorporated with the Multimedia Base? The following models can be incorporated with the Multimedia Base: 107B5, 107E6,107F6, 107S6, 107T6. 23. What are Philips Multimedia Base's specifications? See detailed Multimedia Base specifications on the product information page. 24. Why is a Multimedia Base better than separate speakers? The major advantage of the Multimedia Base is its minimal space requirements. In fact, it hardly uses any extra space at all: monitor depth and width are unchanged. Only the monitor's height is increased by only 3 centimeters. 25. Where can I buy a multimedia base to incorporate with my Philips monitor? file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (7 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions Please contact your dealer/reseller for details. 26. What does Auto Calibrate do? It makes your monitor perform better and last longer. As a monitor becomes older, brightness gradually deteriorates and its colors change. This well-known process effects all monitors. Eventually after a number of years, the monitor's brightness deteriorates to below 50% of its original value. At this stage, the usable life of a monitor is considered ended. Auto Calibrate regularly readjusts color temperature and luminance to their original values. 27. How does Philips Auto Calibrate feature benefit me? With Auto Calibrate, it takes a monitor's luminance 33 percent longer to deteriorate to the 50 percent level that marks the end of a display device's useful life. Thanks to Auto Calibrate, a monitor with a normal life of 10,000 hours, for example, would last for 13,300 hours, a full one third longer. 28. How does Auto Calibrate work? During the calibration process, different predefined black and white images are displayed on the screen. The beam currents of the red, green and blue cannon are accurately measured and compared to the original values stored in the monitor. By readjusting gain values of the individual cannons, deviation is reduced to zero. Default values are stored during production. If the user sets a new color temperature, this new value is saved as the new default value. 29. When should calibration be performed? file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (8 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions The calibration process takes less than six seconds. During this period, different specific images are displayed. After the process is finalized, the original image is redisplayed. Constant re-calibration is not required. Calibration should be performed after the monitor is warmed up. Auto Calibration takes place when a monitor receives a signal indicating an imminent switch to its sleep mode/stand-by mode. 30. Which models of Philips monitors are equipped with Auto Calibrate feature? Auto Calibrate is currently available in the new 202P, 201B and 109P. 31. The Main Menu displays OSD MAIN MENU LOCKED . Pressing the front control panels hasno effect. How can I unlock this function? Press and hold the OSD menu key for about 15 seconds until picture displays "OSD MAIN MENU UNLOCKED" 32. My screen shows NO SYNC INPUT , how can I get rid of this? Check the following for possible solutions: ● ● ● ● ● Bent pins on the video cable Make sure the computer is turned on Ensure the VGA Cable is properly connected Ensure the BNC/D-Sub connector on the rear of the monitor is in the correct position, newer models have this option in the On Screen Display under Input Signal Selection. Video card may be not a VESA standard (try the monitor with another computer) file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (9 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions 33. Why does my monitor display "Out of Range"? The video card installed in your computer may be too high for the monitor 's specifications. Please contact your computer manufacturer for details on how to lower resolution for your operating system. 34. What is Moire? Why does my monitor have this wavy phenomenon? Moire is a natural effect or phenomenon of CRT that has the appearance of a wavy pattern, which is repetitive and superimposed on the screen as ripple images. These are a few suggestions to help reduce or minimize the effects: ● ● ● ● Some monitors have a Moire cancellation feature, activate it to the on position or adjust the Moire cancellation function via the OSD on the monitor. Change resolution to the recommended standard for the specific monitor size. Change Window viewing pattern/scheme to a pattern where the Moire is less visible. Change horizontal and vertical size to optimize the reduction of the Moire effect. 35. My monitor appears to be missing one or more colors. How do I correct this? ● ● ● ● If the OSD menu is also missing a color, please contact service for details Set color temperature to 9300 color coordination Check the video cable for any bent pins Video card could be defective (try the monitor with another computer). 36. When I degauss my monitor, it makes a loud noise. Is this normal? Yes, when degaussing your monitor via the OSD, it is normal for the monitor to make a relatively loud noise. Please be aware that many models will not degauss more than once within any given time period (up to 10 minutes). This is due to the unit having a temperature sensitive resistor. While the unit is degaussing, the resistor increases in value with heat and once it reaches a certain temperature, the resistance will rise and prevent voltage from reaching the degaussing coil. This is what stops the degausser, and this device's resistance will decrease as it cools back off, enabling the degauss function to operate again. This is an intentional design and is an industry standard, not just for Philips monitors. Please be aware that not all models in the Philips range has this manual degauss function. Some models are built with an auto degauss feature which automatically degausses the monitor when it is switched on. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (10 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions 37. How do I adjust the picture on the screen? Please perform the following to correct the picture image: ● ● ● Reset your monitor via the OSD menu Adjust the Horz (width) and/or Vert size (height) in the OSD Change monitor timing to work at the recommended resolution 38. The edge of the picture on the screen appears to be distorted. How can I correct this? Please perform the following to correct the picture image: ● ● ● ● A magnetic or electrical interference typically causes poor geometry in the picture. Place the monitor in a different physical location Reset the monitor to the factory preset via the OSD menu Access the Geometry Menu in the OSD of the Monitor and perform the necessary adjustments Change the monitor timing to the recommended resolution 39. The picture appears too dim. How can I correct this? Adjust Brightness and/or Contrast via the monitor 's OSD. Some models have a Video Input Select under Advanced Controls in the monitor 's OSD. Most computers require it to be set at 0.7V. Please review the following for possible solutions: ● ● ● ● If the OSD menu is also dim, please contact service for repair Reset the monitor via the OSD menu Change the color temperature settings to 9300 color coordination via the OSD menu Set the Contrast to maximum level (100) and Brightness to middle level (50) file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/FAQ.HTM (11 of 13)2004-10-22 6:22:15 PM Frequently Asked Questions Video card could be defective (try the monitor with another computer) 40. I have noticed two thin horizontal lines on the screen of my Philips monitor. Is this normal? This phenomenon can occur with Philips 107P, 109P and 202P monitors and is normal. Your monitor is using an Aperture Grille, which consists of fine vertical wires to align the electron beams with the phosphors on the screen. To prevent these vertical wires from vibrating and to keep them properly aligned with the picture tube, two horizontal damper wires are required. These are located on one-third and on twothird from the top of the screen. The result is that you will see two very thin horizontal lines over your screen since the two wires are casting a slight shadow on the screen surface. You will find these wires (line) in any monitor from Philips and other brands using the Aperture Grille technology. 41. How can I increase the color display of my monitor? The amount of video memory your video card holds determines the amount of colors that can be displayed on your computer screen. To get the most out of your video card, you will need to either install the latest drivers onto your computer or upgrade the video cards memory. Please check with your computer or video card manufacturer for further details. 42. Why is there no picture on my monitor? ● ● ● ● Check the wall socket for power. Verify that there is power by connecting another product. Ensure the power cable is correctly attached to both the wall socket and the monitor. Check that the power button is switched on. Unplug the monitor for approx. 1 minute and plug it in again. Switch the monitor back on. 43. Why is there no picture on my monitor even though the power LED is yellow/amber or flashing green? ● ● ● Reboot your computer while holding the Ctrl key on your computer. If you see any picture during the boot procedure, please verify the settings of your video card (for Windows go to Control Panel and select Display).

An autoscan monitor can thus operate with a wide range of video cards. MultiSync, a registered trademark of NEC, provides a similar function. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE B Balanced pincushion See Geometric distortion BNC connection A special construction of connector used in some monitors with higher horizontal scanning frequency. The BNC connection can provide the optimum shielding and matching characteristic impedance of video signal path to ensure the best video performance. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (1 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE C CE Mark CE mark is displayed on products per EMC and LV ( low Voltage Device ) directives in compliance with European Community safety, EMI and EMS requirements and is compulsory on products for sale in the European Community. Color temperature A way of describing the color of a radiating source in terms of the temperature (in degrees Kelvin) of a black body radiating with the same dominant frequency as the source. Most Philips monitors offer the possibility of setting the color temperature to any desired value. Contrast The ratio between the brightness of the brightest and darkest parts of a picture. The darkest part of file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (2 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary a picture is set by the brightness of the unexcited phosphor, which is governed by the degree with which ambient light is reflected. Contrast is therefore reduced in conditions of high ambient light levels. Black Matrix tubes reflect less ambient light so exhibit higher contrast than other tubes. Convergence error Bean misalignment causing one or more of the three beams passing through the wrong aperture in the shadow mask and striking a phosphor dot in the wrong triad. Convergence error is expressed in mm often at three well-defined points on the screen, designated A, B and C (see figure ). Also known as misconvergence. Points where convergence error is specified. Convergence-error correction A method of correcting for convergence error to insure that all three beams land simultaneously in the same triad. This is usually accomplished by means of special convergence-error correction coils in the deflection yoke. CRT file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (3 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary Cathode-ray tube - the general term for all tubes in which one or more electron beams emitted by a cathode are periodically scanned across a phosphor screen by means of deflection circuitry. A special form of the cathode-ray tube is the TV and monitor picture tube. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE D DDC (Display Data Channel) DDC is a communication channel for displays and computers. The DDC feature allows the monitor controller to be automatically configured to make optimal use of the display without manual user interaction. DDC is implemented as part of the new Plug & Play approach introduced into the PC market to increase user friendliness. The three levels developed for Plug & play are: (1) DDC1, monitor send data to the PC; (2) DDC2B, PC can request information from monitor; and (3) DDC2Bi which is a two-way communication monitor can be addressed and PC or graphics board can give commands to monitor. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (4 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary DDC 1/2B See DDC. DDC 2Bi See DDC. Degaussing The procedure of demagnetizing the shadow mask and associated metal parts of a picture tube at switch-on to minimize picture distortion. This is usually accomplished by means of a special degaussing coil through which a decaying alternating current is passed to generate an alternating magnetic field that gradually decays to demagnetize the tube. Some monitors offer a manual degaussing facility that can be activated at any time. Digital control Microprocessor-based digital control of picture parameters and video modes for complete control of picture settings and modes and instant recall of all settings at the push of a button. This is a very advanced feature that allows the user to switch to any required mode at any instant without having to spend time readjusting the picture. It is currently available in most Philips monitors. Dot pitch The shortest distance between two phosphor dots of the same color on the screen. The smaller the dot pitch, the better the resolution of the monitor. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (5 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary Dot rate Frequency in MHz of the dot clock. It is a measure of the speed with which data is transferred between the video card and subsequent processing circuitry. Also known as video dot rate. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE E Electromagnetic radiation standards International standards set to limit electromagnetic emissions from monitors. There are currently file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (6 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary two important standards both derived from regulations originally laid down by Swedish authorities. MPR-II The standard originally proposed by the Swedish National Board of Measurement and Testing. It set maximum levels of electromagnetic radiation emitted by monitors, and has now been adopted as a world standard. MPR-II defines maximum permitted electrostatic, magnetic and electric field levels measured at a distance of 50 cm from the center of the monitor (see table). TCO In 1991, the Swedish Tjänstemannens Central Organization (TCO, Swedish confederation of Professional Employees ) set a standard even more severe than MPR-II, especially for alternating electric fields (AEF). The TCO standard is more severe since not only are the permitted field levels reduced compared with MPR-II, but the measuring distance is also reduced (see table). Electromagnetic radiation standards EMI (Electrical Magnetic Interference) The electrical and/or magnetic radiation coming from the working electrical or electronic equipment. EMS (Electrical Magnetic Sustainment) The ability of electrical or electronic equipment to function properly in the environment with electrical and/or magnetic interference. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE F Flicker Very rapid variations in picture intensity caused by the finite time required for the electron beam to scan a picture onto the screen. Two kinds of flicker occur: line flicker caused by the electron beam scanning-in each line of the picture; and frame flicker (or field flicker if the picture is interlaced) caused by the frame repetition rate of 50 frames/second. Frame flicker is noticeable with GUI and DTP software (which have a light background), and can be very disturbing, especially for those who work regularly with displays - contributing to eye strain, headaches, visual blurring, stress, etc. The file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (7 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary problem can, however, be eliminated by increasing the refresh rate (number of frames/second) of the monitor to a value above around 70 Hz. Sensitivity to flicker appears to diminish with increasing age. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE H Hertz The unit of frequency named after the physicist Heinrich Hertz (1857-1894). 1 hertz (Hz) is equal to 1 cycle/second. Horizontal dot pitch See Dot pitch. Horizontal scanning frequency Also called line frequency and expressed in kHz, it is the number of video lines written on the screen every second (from left to right). The higher the horizontal scanning frequency, the better the resolution (i.e., the higher the resolution and/or the higher the refresh rate). RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE I INF File file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (8 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary INF file (Information File) Information (INF) files store information in a specific format. The set-up functions retrieve information from the INF file to use when performing installation operations. Examples of the type of information stored in an INF file include INI and registry changes, file names, and locations of the source files on source media. Interlaced/non-interlaced Interlaced. The method of writing a picture on the screen by initially writing all even lines and subsequently writing all odd lines of the picture. Result: The complete picture is composed of two interlaced half pictures (or fields). With interlacing, a vertical (or field) frequency of 50 Hz means a picture (or frame) frequency of 25 Hz. Non-interlaced. The method of writing a picture on the screen by successive video lines of the picture so that a full frame is written onto the screen in one vertical sweep of the beams. With a non-interlaced display, a vertical frequency of 50 Hz means a picture (or frame) frequency of 50 Hz. At any given resolution, non-interlaced modes are preferable to interlaced modes; however, generation of non-interlaced modes is more expensive.

These are subject to increasing attention, notably by governing authorities, the trade and the press. Although there is no scientific evidence that monitor emissions are harmful, much effort has gone into reducing emissions on the principle of better safe than sorry. Currently, there are two areas of interest: very-low frequency (VLF) electric and magnetic fields extending from 2 kHz to 400 kHz, and extreme low frequency (ELF) fields extending from 5 Hz to 2 kHz. See also Electromagnetic radiation standards. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE M Moiré effect A fringe pattern arising from the interference between two superimposed line patterns. In a monitor it comes from the interference between the shadow mask pattern and the video information (video moiré), and between the shadow mask pattern and the horizontal line pattern (scan moiré). It shows itself as wavy patterns on the screen and becomes more noticeable as monitor resolution increases. Since the video signal varies continuously, little can be done about video moiré. Scan moiré depends on the horizontal scanning frequency and can be alleviated by appropriate choice of frequency. Autoscan (MultiSync) monitors, which operate over a range of scanning frequencies, may sometimes exhibit moiré in certain video modes. MPR See Electromagnetic radiation standards.

RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE O OSD (On Screen Display) The feature that allows an end user to adjust screen performance and parameters of monitors directly through an on-screen instruction window. See CustoMax in CrystalClear section. Overscan The practice in which areas without useful video information are scanned outside the visible screen area in order to make maximum use of the screen for display of active video information. This practice is occasionally necessary because some video cards generate a video pattern that is smaller than the visible screen area, resulting in an image that is smaller (and less legible) than it needs to be.

Phosphor Generic name for the class of substances that exhibit luminescence. To produce a picture on screen, phosphors are deposited on the inner surface of the picture-tube screen and excited into luminescence by the electron beam. Typical examples of phosphors are P22 medium shortpersistence phosphor and EBU high-color-saturation phosphor. Pin-cushion Distortion See Geometric distortion. Pixel Abbreviation for picture element, the smallest element of the picture that can be displayed on the screen. The smaller the pixel size, the better the resolution of the monitor. Pixel size is determined by the size of the electron spot on the screen and not necessarily by the phosphor dot pitch (the size of the triad). Thus, a monitor with a large electron spot covering several triads can exhibit poor resolution even though its dot pitch is small. Pixel frequency The number of pixels that can be written in a video line per second. Pixel rate See pixel frequency file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (13 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary Plug-and-Play See DDC. See USB section.

Rotation function The feature that allows users to adjust the whole screen rotating to be horizontal. Because of the magnetic field of earth, the screen of monitor will be tilt when the screen faces toward the different direction. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (14 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary S Screen coatings Anti-Static coatings Due to bombardment by beam electrons, monitor screens become electrically charged when in use. Electrically charged screens surfaces can attract dust particles. An Anti-Static coating is a conductive coating deposited on the screen (or on a glass panel immediately in front of the screen) that conducts away the charge and prevents screen dust build-up. AGAS (Anti-Glare, Anti-Static) coating AGAS is a silica coating applied to the surface of the screen by a spinning and spraying process. It operates by diffusing reflected light to blur images of light sources on the screen. To provide antistatic properties, the coating is impregnated with small conductive particles. ARAS (Anti-Reflection, Anti-Static) coating file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (15 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary ARAS is one of the most effective anti-reflection/anti-static screen treatments currently available. It is composed of a multi-layer structure of transparent dielectric material that suppresses specular reflections by broadband interference effects at the screen surface. Anti-static properties are provided by a single conductive layer within the multi-layer structure. With ARAS, the intensity of reflected light is reduced from around 4.5% of the incident light (the reflectivity of uncoated screens) to less than 0.5%. ARAS also has a major advantage over other screen treatments: It doesn't diffuse or scatter reflected light, so picture contrast and sharpness remain completely unimpaired. It's also easy to clean and tough enough to withstand commercially available cleaning agents. The ARAS coating reflects only about 0.5% of the incident light. AGARAS (Anti-Glare Anti-Reflection Anti-Static) coating. A combined anti-reflection, anti-glare, anti-static coating. Self-test function A monitor equipped with hardware or software to automatically detect cable connection status. Shape Deviation of a reproduced picture from its intended shape.

Signals from a PC are transmitted to a monitor using one of three methods: 1. Separate sync: Horizontal and Vertical sync signals transmitted separately 2. Composite sync: Horizontal and vertical sync pulses mixed into a single signal train. 3. SOG: Horizontal and vertical sync pulses mixed, then combined with the green color signal.

Tilt function See rotation function. Trapezoid distortion See Geometrical distortion. TTL signal A TTL (Transistor-transistor-logic) signal is a digital signal level for controlling the screen colors. With TTL driving, the red, green and blue signals can only be switched on or off or provided with an intensity signal. A TTL-driven monitor can thus display a maximum of 64 colors. Video standards such as MDA, CGA and EGA are based on TTL level. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE U USB or Universal Serial Bus A smart plug for PC peripherals. USB automatically determines resources (like driver software and bus bandwidth) required by peripherals. USB makes necessary resources available without user intervention. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (18 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary ● ● ● USB eliminates "case angst" -- the fear of removing the computer case to install add-on peripherals. And USB also eliminates adjustment of complicated IRQ settings when installing new peripherals. USB does away with "port gridlock." Without USB, PCs are normally limited to one printer, two Com port devices (usually a mouse and modem), one Enhanced Parallel Port add-on (scanner or video camera, for example) and a joystick. More and more peripherals for multimedia computers arrive on the market every day. With USB, up to 127 devices can run simultaneously on a computer. USB permits "hot plug-in." There's no need to shut down, plug in, reboot and run set-up to install peripherals. And no need to go through the reverse process to unplug a device. In short, USB transforms today's "Plug-and-Pray" into true Plug-and-Play! Hub A Universal Serial Bus device that provides additional connections to the Universal Serial Bus. Hubs are a key element in the plug-and-play architecture of USB. The Figure shows a typical hub. Hubs serve to simplify USB connectivity from the user's perspective and provide robustness at low cost and complexity. Hubs are wiring concentrators and enable the multiple attachment characteristics of USB. Attachment points are referred to as ports. Each hub converts a single attachment point into multiple attachment points. The architecture supports concatenation of multiple hubs. The upstream port of a hub connects the hub towards the host. Each of the other downstream ports of a hub allows connection to another hub or function. Hubs can detect, attach and detach at each downstream port and enable the distribution of power to downstream devices. Each downstream port can be individually enabled and configured at either full or low speed. The hub isolates low speed ports from full speed signaling. A hub consists of two portions: the Hub Controller and Hub Repeater. The repeater is a protocolcontrolled switch between the upstream port and downstream ports. It also has hardware support for reset and suspend/resume signaling. The controller provides the interface registers to allow communication to/from the host. Hub specific status and control commands permit the host to configure a hub and to monitor and control its ports. Device A logical or physical entity that performs a function. The actual entity described depends on the context of the reference. At the lowest level, device may refer to a single hardware component, as in a memory device. At a higher level, it may refer to a collection of hardware components that perform a particular function, such as a Universal Serial Bus interface device. At an even higher level, device may refer to the function performed by an entity attached to the Universal Serial Bus; file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (19 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary for example, a data/FAX modem device. Devices may be physical, electrical, addressable, and logical. Downstream The direction of data flow from the host or away from the host. A downstream port is the port on a hub electrically farthest from the host that generates downstream data traffic from the hub. Downstream ports receive upstream data traffic. Upstream The direction of data flow towards the host. An upstream port is the port on a device electrically closest to the host that generates upstream data traffic from the hub. Upstream ports receive downstream data traffic. UPS (Universal Power Supply) The monitor with UPS feature can work in different countries with various mains voltage.

Vertical sync pulses A train of square shaped waveforms that define the start of a new frame. VESA Video Electronic Standards Association, a consortium of manufacturers formed to establish and maintain industry-wide standards for video cards and monitors. VESA was instrumental in the introduction of the Super VGA and Extended VGA video graphics standards (see Video graphics adapters) with a refresh rate of 70 Hz, minimizing flicker and helping to reduce operator eyes fatigue and stress.

Video graphics adapters file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/GLOSSARY/GLOSSARY.HTM (21 of 22)2004-10-22 6:22:16 PM Glossary A card equipped with a character or graphic generator and video memory, which maps to the screen. A microprocessor scans video memory and translates bit information from the computer into displayable video signals for the monitor. These cards comply with various standards that determine the nature and quality of the display. VGA (Video Graphics Array), introduced in 1987, was the first analog card. It offered still higher resolution than EGA: 640 X 480 pixels for graphics and 720 x 400 pixels for text, and a color palette of 256 colors. VGA could also emulate EGA and CGA. Super VGA, devised by VESA in 1989, offers a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. Extended VGA, introduced by VESA in 1991, offers a top resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels (noninterlaced) and a refresh rate slightly higher than IBM's XGA 8514A. High-end, graphics adapters, introduced over the last three years for professional workstations, offer top resolutions from 1280 x 1024 to 1600 x 1280, horizontal line frequencies up to 90 kHz and bandwidths up to 200 MHz. VIS (Viewable Image Size) The real screen dimensions that users can see measured diagonally. The VIS of a monitor is always less than the so called screen size of a monitor. For example, the VIS of a 17-inch monitor is only about 16 inches. It depends on the useful screen size of CRT and the opening of a monitor's front cabinet.

You have just purchased a TCO' 99 approved and labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics products. Why do we have environmentally labeled computers? In many countries, environmental labeling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature. file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/107S/SAFETY/regs/regulat.htm (1 of 17)2004-10-22 6:23:21 PM Regulatory Information There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy. What does labeling involve? This product meets the requirements for the TCO' 99 scheme which provides for international and environmental labeling of personal computers. The labeling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration). Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety. The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user. Labeled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability. Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete environmental criteria document may be ordered from: TCO Development SE-114 94 Stockholm, Sweden Fax: +46 8 782 92 07 Email (Internet): email@example.com Current information regarding TCO' 99 approved and labeled products may also be obtained via the Internet, using the address: http://www.tco-info.com/ file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/107S/SAFETY/regs/regulat.htm (2 of 17)2004-10-22 6:23:21 PM Regulatory Information RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE Environmental Requirements Flame retardants Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in fetus development may occur. The relevant TCO' 99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available. Cadmium** Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the color-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO' 99 requirement states that batteries, the color-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium. Mercury** Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO' 99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the labeled unit. CFCs (freons) The relevant TCO' 99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the file:///D|/EDFU/crt_17_6/edoc/english/107S/SAFETY/regs/regulat.htm (3 of 17)2004-10-22 6:23:21 PM Regulatory Information manufacture and assembly of the product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with increased risks e.g. skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a consequence. Lead** Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO' 99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed. * Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms. ** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are bio-accumulative.
