enhanced text readability and graphics clarity.
Eliminate glare and reflections by:
•
placing your display in such a way that the side faces the window or
any light source
•
•
•
•
•
minimizing room light by using drapes, shades or blinds
using a task light
changing the display's viewing angle
using a glare-reduction filter
using a display visor, such as a piece of cardboard extended from the
display's top front edge
Avoid adjusting your display to an awkward viewing angle.
Avoid looking at bright light sources, such as open windows, for extended
periods of time.
Developing good work habits
Develop the following work habits to make your computer use more relaxing
and productive:
Take short breaks regularly and often.

Check first to make sure that the power cord you use is the correct type
required for your area.
This monitor has a universal power supply that allows operation in either
100/120V AC or 220/240 V AC voltage area. No user-adjustment is required.
Plug one end of the power cord to the AC inlet, and plug the other end
into an AC outlet.
For unit using at 120 V AC:
Use a UL Listed Cord Set, Type SVT wire and plug rated 10 A/125 V.
For unit using at 220/240 V AC (outside of U.S.):
Use a Cord Set consisting of H05VV-F cord and plug rated 10 A, 250 V. The
cord set should have the appropriate safety approvals for the country in
which the equipment will be installed.
SAFETY PRECAUTION

The power saving states will be kept until a control signal has been detected
or the keyboard or mouse is activated. The recovery time from Active OFF
state back to ON state is around 3 seconds.
DDC
To make your installation easier, the monitor is able to Plug and Play with
your system if your system also supports DDC protocol. The DDC (Display Data
Channel) is a communication protocol through which the monitor

5.
Brightness: Adjust the brightness from 0 to 100.
Note: Adjusts the balance between light and dark shades.
6.
Contrast: adjust the contrast from 0 to 100.
Note: Sets the degree of difference between light and dark areas.
EN-13
7.
Blue Light: filter out blue light by adjusting different Blue Light showing
ratio - 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%.
Note: Higher values allow more blue light through. For the best
protection, select a lower value.
8.
Dark Boost: This boosts the amplitude of the dark color levels of the
display– blacks will be less black. The higher the level, the higher the
boost.
9.
Adaptive Contrast: This method usually increases the global contrast of
many images, especially when the usable data of the image is
represented by close contrast values. This allows for areas of lower local
contrast to gain a higher contrast. The method is useful in images with
backgrounds and foregrounds that are both bright or both dark. In
particular, the method can lead to better views of bone structure in x-ray
images, and to better detail in photographs that are over or underexposed.
