Image Persistence: Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen.
Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period
of time should be avoided.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image
was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends using a moving screen saver at regular
intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.
English-3
CORRECT PLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT OF THE MONITOR CAN
REDUCE EYE, SHOULDER AND NECK FATIGUE. CHECK THE
FOLLOWING WHEN YOU POSITION THE MONITOR:
•
For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for the display to warm up.
•
Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level.
Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.
•
Position your monitor no closer than 40 cm (15.75 inches) and no further away than
70 cm (27.56 inches) from your eyes. The optimal distance is 50 cm (19.69 inches).
•
Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.
•
Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare
and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.
•
If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti-glare filter.
•
Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using any
cleaning solution or glass cleaner!
•
Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.
•
Use a document holder placed close to the screen.
•
Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference material) directly in front of you to minimize
turning your head while you are typing.
•
Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-image effects).
•
Get regular eye checkups.
Ergonomics
To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:
•
To avoid eye fatigue, adjust the brightness to a moderate setting. Place a sheet of white paper next to the LCD screen for
luminance reference.
•
Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting.
•
Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals.
•
Use the preset Color Setting.
•
Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate of more than 60 Hz.
•
Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue due to insufficient
contrast.
•
Suitable for entertainment purposes at controlled luminous environments, to avoid disturbing reflections from the screen.
Cleaning the LCD Panel
•
When the LCD is dusty, please gently wipe with a soft cloth.
•
Please do not rub the LCD panel with hard or coarse material.
•
Please do not apply pressure to the LCD surface.
•
Please do not use OA cleaner as it will cause deterioration or discoloration on the LCD surface.
Cleaning the Cabinet
•
Unplug the power supply
•
Gently wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth
•
To clean the cabinet, dampen the cloth with a neutral detergent and water, wipe the cabinet and follow with a dry cloth.
NOTE:
Many plastics are used on the surface of the cabinet. DO NOT clean with benzene, thinner, alkaline detergent,
alcoholic system detergent, glass cleaner, wax, polish cleaner, soap powder, or insecticide. Do not touch rubber or
vinyl to the cabinet for a long time. These types of fluids and fabrics can cause the paint to deteriorate, crack or peel.

Controls
Brightness/Contrast Controls
BRIGHTNESS
Adjusts the overall image and background screen brightness.
NOTE:
The brightness level is adjusted using the backlight output.
The display will digitally compensate for low or high brightness levels.
If digital compensation occurs, the brightness value on the OSD will change to magenta.
NOTE:
The optimal display performance will be in the range where the OSD brightness value is black. When the
display cannot achieve the desired brightness, the numerical brightness value on the OSD will blink.
NOTE:
For low brightness settings, the display will automatically compensate by adjusting the screen contrast to
achieve the desired brightness. This will result in a reduced contrast ratio and the OSD indicator will change
to magenta.
NOTE:
For high brightness settings, the display will automatically compensate by turning down uniformity
compensation in order to achieve the desired brightness. The OSD indicator will change to magenta and this
may result in decreased uniformity.
CONTRAST (Analog input only)*
Adjusts the overall image and background screen brightness by input signal level.
NOTE:
It is recommended to use BRIGHTNESS to adjust screen brightness for lower power consumption and
improved image quality.
ECO MODE
Decreases the amount of power consumed by reducing the brightness level.
OFF: No function.
MODE1: Reduces the maximum possible brightness to about 200 cd/m2.
MODE2: Reduces the maximum possible brightness to about 100 cd/m2.
BLACK
Adjusts the black luminance.
When low settings are selected that cannot be displayed, the indicator on the OSD will turn magenta.
Auto Adjust (Analog input only)*
AUTO ADJUST
Automatically adjusts the Image Position and H. SIZE settings and FINE settings.
AUTO CONTRAST

people who have such deficiencies will perceive colors. This preview is available in four
modes: Types P (Protanopia), D (Deuteranopia) and T (Tritanopia) emulate color vision
dichromacy, and Grayscale can be used for evaluating contrast legibility.
NOTE: Depending on the vision of the user, including those with color vision deficiency,
there will be a variation in how the screen's color is seen and experienced.
A simulation is used to illustrate the view of those with a color vision deficiency. It is
not their actual view. The simulation is a reproduction of those with a strong color
vision mode of type P, type D or type T. People with a slight color vision deficiency will
experience little to no difference compared to those with normal color vision.

English-28
DisplayPort: DisplayPort is designed to be the future-ready, scalable solution for high performance digital display connectivity. It
enables the highest resolutions, the fastest refresh rates and deepest color depths over standard cables.
HDMI: HDMI is designed to be the future-ready, scalable solution for high performance digital display connectivity. It enables the highest
resolutions, the fastest refresh rates and deepest color depths over standard cables, especially for consumer audio/video equipment.
DFP (Digital Flat Panel): An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal compatible with DVI. As a DVI-based digital only
connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DFP and other DVI-based digital connectors such as DVI and
P&D.
P&D (Plug and Display): The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it allows for other
options off a signal connector (options like USB, analog video and IEEE-1394-995). The VESA committee has recognized that DFP is a
subset of P&D. As a DVI-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between P&D
and other DVI-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP.
Pivoting Stand: Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their application, either Landscape orientation for
wide documents, or Portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also
perfect for full screen video conferencing.
Reduced Footprint: Provides the ideal solution for environments with space constraints that still require superior image quality. The
monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.
Color Control Systems: Allow you to adjust the colors on your screen and customize the color accuracy of your monitor to a variety of
standards.
Natural Color Matrix: Combines Six-axis color control and the sRGB standard. Six-axis color control permits color adjustments via
six axes (R, G, B, C, M and Y) rather than through the three axes (R, G and B) previously available. The sRGB standard provides the
monitor with a uniform color profile. This assures that the colors displayed on the monitor are exactly the same as on the color printout
(with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer). This allows you to adjust the colors on your screen and customise the color
accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.
OSD (On-Screen Display) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to use onscreen menus.
ErgoDesign Features: Enhanced human ergonomics to improve the working environment, protect the health of the user and save
money. Examples include OSD controls for quick and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision, small footprint and
compliance with MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions.
Plug and Play: The Microsoft® solution with the Windows® operating system facilitates setup and installation by allowing the monitor

Image Persistence
• Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen. Unlike CRT
monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for a long period
of time should be avoided. To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was
displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should
be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
NOTE:
As with all personal display devices, NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS recommends using a moving screen saver at
regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.

Using the Auto Brightness function
The brightness of the LCD screen can be set to increase or decrease depending on the amount of ambient lighting within the
room. If the room is bright, the monitor becomes correspondingly bright. If the room is dim, then the monitor will dim accordingly.
The purpose of this function is to make the viewing experience more comfortable to the eye in a variety of lighting conditions.
SETUP
Use the following procedures to select the Brightness Range that the monitor will use when the Auto Brightness function is
activated.
1. Set the BRIGHTNESS level. This is the brightness level that the monitor will go up to when the ambient lighting level is
highest. Select this setting when the room is at its brightest.
Select “ON” in the AUTO BRIGHTNESS menu (Figure 1). Then use the front buttons to move the cursor up to the
BRIGHTNESS setting. Choose the desired brightness level (Figure 2).
2. Set the DARK level. This is the level of brightness that the monitor will go down to when the ambient lighting level is low.
Make sure the room is at its darkest when setting this level.
Then use the front buttons to move the cursor up to the BRIGHTNESS setting. Choose the desired brightness level
(Figure 3).
