Chapter 9 Glossary
ContrastEnhancer
The function to control the brightness of backlight and the gain level as well as correct gamma value
according to the images. So it can produce high-contrast images.
FPS (First Person Shooter)
This refers to shooting games where the player(s) moves through the world in the game with a first-person
perspective as the main character, fighting enemies.
Gain
This is used to adjust each color parameter for red, green and blue. An LCD monitor displays the color by
the light passing through the panel color filter. Red, green and blue are the three primary colors. All the
colors on the screen are displayed by combining these three colors. The color tone can be changed by
adjusting the light intensity (volume) passing through each color’s filter.
Gamma
Generally, the monitor brightness varies nonlinearly with the input signal level, which is called “Gamma
Characteristic”. A small gamma value produces a low-contrast image, while a large gamma value produces a
highcontrast image.
RTS (Real Time Strategy)
This refers to games where the player(s) compete while strategizing under conditions that progress in real
time.
Temperature
Color temperature is a method to measure the white color tone, generally indicated in degrees Kelvin. The
screen becomes reddish at a low temperature, and bluish at a high temperature, like the flame temperature.
5000 K: Slightly reddish white
6500 K: White referred to as daylight-balanced color
9300 K: Slightly bluish white
Turbo 240
This is a function that causes the backlight to flash in synchrony with switching of the screen in order to hide
the instants when the screen is being redisplayed, achieving a crisp display.
