Natural Color
Natural Color Software Program
One of the recent problems in using a computer is that the color of the images printed out by a
printer or other images scanned by a scanner or a digital camera are not the same as those
shown on the monitor.
The Natural Color S/W is the very solution for this problem. It is a color administration system
developed by Samsung Electronics in association with Korea Electronics &
Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI).
This system is available only for Samsung monitors and makes the color of the images on the
monitor the same as the printed or scanned images.
For more information, refer to Help (F1) in the software program.
How to install the Natural Color software
Insert the CD included with the Samsung monitor into the CD-ROM Drive. Then, the initial
screen of the program Natural Color will be executed. Click Natural Color on the initial screen
to install the Natural Color software.
To install the program manually, insert the CD included with the Samsung monitor into the CDROM Drive, click the [Start] button of Windows and then select [Execute].
Enter D:\color\eng\setup.exe and then press the <Enter> key.
(If the drive where the CD is inserted is not D:\, enter the applicable drive.)
How to delete the Natural Color software program
Select [Setting]/[Control Panel] on the [Start] menu and then double-click [Add/Delete a
program].
Select Natural Color from the list and then click the [Add/Delete] button.

Overview
What is MagicTune™ ?
Monitor performance can v ary due to the graphics card, host c omputer lighting conditions
and other environmental factors . In order to get the best image on a monitor requires you
to adjust it for your unique setting. Unfortunately, the manual controls av ailable to tune the
image often prove to be c hallenging. Proper adjustment (tuning) requires an easy to use
program that goes through a step-by -step process to obtain the bes t overall picture quality.
In most cases even simple adjustments to Brightness, or Contrast require navigation of the
multi -level, on-screen display (OSD) menus that are not eas y to understand. Furthermore,
there is no feedback to assist in correctly setting the controls of the monitor. MagicTune is
a s oftware utility that guides you through the tuning process with easy to understand
instructions and back ground patterns designed for each monitor control.
Basic Functionality
Magic Tune is a software utility that allows monitor adjustment and color tuning using the
Display Data Channel Command Interface (DDC/CI) protocol. All adjustments to the
display are controlled via software to eliminate the need to use the monitor on-screen
display (OSD). MagicTune supports Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, NT, XP Home, and XP
Professional.
MagicTune allows for quick ac curate tuning of the display with the ability to easily save
and use monitor configurations that are best suited for you.
OSD Mode
The OSD mode allows eas y adjustment of monitor settings without taking pre -defined
steps. You can access the desired menu item to s et with ease.

Plug and Play Capability
This monitor can be installed on any Plug & Play compatible system. Interaction of the monitor and
computer systems will provide the best operating conditions and monitor settings. In most cases,
monitor installation will proceed automatically, unless the user wishes to select alternate settings.
Note: Design and specifications are subject to change without prior notice.
PowerSaver
This monitor has a built-in power management system called PowerSaver. This system saves energy
by switching your monitor into a low-power mode when it has not been used for a certain amount of
time. The monitor automatically returns to normal operation when you press a key on the keyboard. For
energy conservation, turn your monitor OFF when it is not needed, or when leaving it unattended for
long periods. The PowerSaver system operates with a VESA DPMS compliant video card installed in
your computer. Use a software utility installed on your computer to set up this feature.

Terms
Dot Pitch
The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots. The closer the dots, the
higher the resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot
Pitch'. Unit: mm
Vertical Frequency
The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to create and display an image
for the user. The frequency of this repetition per second is called Vertical Frequency or
Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz
Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz.
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally
is called Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal
Frequency. Unit: kHz
Interlace and Non-Interlace Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom in order is called the
Non-Interlace method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the
Interlace method. The Non-Interlace method is used for the majority of monitors to ensure a
clear image. The Interlace method is the same as that used in TVs.
Plug & Play
This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user by allowing the computer
and the monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international
standard VESA DDC for the Plug & Play function.
Resolution
The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the screen image is called
'resolution'. This number shows the accuracy of the display. High resolution is good for
performing multiple tasks as more image information can be shown on the screen.
Example: If the resolution is 1024 X 768, this means the screen is composed of 1024
horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 768 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
