For this test ,an LMD(Light Measurement Device)is needed with adequate response time to track any
visible rate flicker component and with a voltage level output proportional
To luminance intensity.

Test Pattern: For dot inversion Driving(Gray levels of foreground dots on the test panel
Are G22,G32,and G45)
♦
Test Point :Center point of the display area
- 14 -
Note 8) Definition of Crosstalk (Refer to the VESA STD)
The calculation for shadowing is made from the 2 luminance measurements Gbkg and Lsh, as follows:
Lmax -Lmin
CT
=
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯ x100 %
Lmin
Where Lmax is the larger value of Gbkg or Lsh , and Lmin is the smaller of the two.
♦ To determine background and foreground levels (colors),first set the background to any gray scale or
color level suitable for shadowing determination.(Note that it may take several iterations of adjusting
background level and box levels to determine the proper value for the background .Next display the box
levels to determine the proper value for the background level. Look for shadowing in any direction from box E.
Independently vary the gray level (or color) of the background and box E until the worst case shadowing is
observed. This defines the background (Gbkg) and foreground (Gfg) levels to be maintained for the
remainder of the test.
♦ One point only (the target) will be measured. To determine that point proceed as follows
Using the background and foreground gray levels of step1 (Gbkg and Gfg). Turn on each box at a time. Look
for the case with the worst shadowing. The box causing the worst case is the shadowing source, or Bsrc. Use
Bsrc and the box opposite from it that lies directly in the shadow path. That is the target box, or Btgt. Note that
box Eight be either Bsrc or Btgt, depending on the shadowing conditions, but typically Bsrc and Btgt will be a
pair of opposite boxes, A&C or B&D. Btgt will only be displayed for aligning the LMD. It will be turned off for
the actual measurement.
♦
The target box point (Btgt) will be measured with the source box (Bsrc) turned on then off. (Btgt is for
alignment purpose only) Display the background only at level Gbkg. Display Btgt determined in step 2 above.
Using the correct distance, angle, and measurement aperture, align the LMD to the center of the Btgt. Turn
off Btgt. With Gbkg set to its proper level, measure the luminance (or color). Next,turn on the source box Bsrc.
Again measure at the center point of Btgt (without Btgt present.). In this case the LMD will be measuring the
shadowing level, Lsh.

Plug and play
Plug & play DDC2B feature
This monitor is equipped with VESA DDC2B capabilities according to the VESA DDC STANDARD. It allows the monitor
to inform the host system of its identity and, depending on the level of DDC used, communicate additional information
about its display capabilities. The communication channel is defined in two levels, DDC2B.
The DDC2Bis a bidirectional data channel based on the I2C protocol. The host can request EDID information over the
DDC2B channel.
THIS MONITOR WILL APPEAR TO BE NON-FUNCTIONAL IF THERE IS NO VIDEO INPUT SIGNAL. IN ORDER
FOR THIS MONITOR TO OPERATE PROPERLY, THERE MUST BE A VIDEO INPUT SIGNAL.
This monitor meets the Green monitor standards as set by the Video Electronics Standards Association(VESA) and/or
the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and The Swedish Confederation Employees (NUTEK). This
feature is designed to conserve electrical energy by reducing power consumption when there is no video-input signal
present. When there is no video input signal this monitor, following a time-out period, will automatically switch to an
OFF mode. This reduces the monitor’s internal power supply consumption. After the video input signal is restored, full
power is restored and the display is automatically redrawn. The appearance is similar to a “Screen Saver” feature
except the display is completely off. The display is restored by pressing a key on the keyboard, or clicking the mouse.
Using The Right Power Cord
The accessory power cord for the Northern American region is the wallet plug with NEMA 5-15 style and is UL listed
and CSA labeled. The voltage rating for the power cord shall be 125 volt AC.
Supplied with units intended for connection to power outlet of personal computer: Please use a cord set consisting of a
minimum No. 18 AWG, type SJT or SVT three conductors flexible cord. One end terminates with a grounding type
attachment plug, rated 10A, 250V,CEE-22 male configuration. The other end terminates with a molded-on type
connector body, rated 10A, 250V, having standard CEE-22 female configuration.
Please note that power supply card needs to use VDE 0602, 0625, 0821 approval power cord in European counties.

Power Consumption
The monitor is equipped with a power-management according to the below.
There is a delay of 5s … 7s before the transition from On-state to any power saving state to avoid
unintentionally entering of a power saving stage during display resolution and timing mode changes.
Transition from any power saving state to another can be instantaneous.
The recovery from Off-state requires no manual power on.
