Read and follow these precautions when connecting and using your computer monitor:
PRECAUTIONS
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not use the monitor near water, e.g. near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, swimming pool or in a wet basement.
Do not place the monitor on an unstable cart, stand, or table. If the monitor falls, it can injure a person and cause serious damage to the appliance. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the monitor. If you mount the monitor on a wall or shelf, use a mounting kit approved by the manufacturer and follow the kit
instructions.
Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the monitor and to protect it from overheating, be sure
these openings are not blocked or covered. Do not place the monitor on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface. Do not place the monitor near or over a radiator or heat register.
Do not place the monitor in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
The monitor should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your dealer
or local power company.
The monitor is equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug, a plug with a third (grounding) pin. This plug will fit only into a grounded power outlet as a safety feature. If your
outlet does not accommodate the three-wire plug, have an electrician install the correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground the appliance safely. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the grounded plug.
Unplug the unit during a lightning storm or when it will not be used for long periods of time. This will protect the monitor from damage due to power surges.
Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
Never push any object into the slot on the monitor cabinet. It could short circuit parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids on the monitor.
Do not attempt to service the monitor yourself; opening or removing covers can expose you to dangerous voltages and other hazards. Please refer all servicing to qualified
service personnel.
To ensure satisfactory operation, use the monitor only with UL listed computers which have appropriate configured receptacles marked between 100 - 240V AC, Min. 5A.
The wall socket shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible.
For use only with the attached power adapter (Output 12Vdc) which have UL,CSA listed license(Only for monitors with power adapter).

DCB Adjustment
What is DCB?
Dynamic Color Boost (DCB) is an advanced color adjustment technology. Through analyzing RGB signals, DCB creates more vivid and natural images to suit various color
environment needs. DCB has two types of color enhancers: “Color Boost” and “Picture Boost” .
DDC: Dynamic color control
ICM: Intelligent color management
1) How to use Color Boost?
YCM adjustment: In addition to the basic R (red), G (green), B (blue) color adjustments, Color Boost has added Y (yellow), B (blue), and M (magenta) for more color fine-tuning
options. YCM adjustments are in the third icon labeled "Color Temperature "in the OSD menu. When adjusting YCM values, RBG values will also be changed automatically due to the
color correlation between RGB and YCM.
Five color-enhancement settings: To accommodate various display needs, Color Boost also offers 5 different color enhancement modes: Full Enhance, Natural Skin, Green Field,
Sky Blue, and Auto-Detect. Please go to the fourth icon labeled “Color Boost” in the OSD menu and select one of the five settings you desire to be turned on.
Full Enhance: When "Full Enhance" is turned on, the color saturation of the entire screen is fully enriched, thus all colors become more vibrant.
Nature Skin: When "Natural Skin" is turned on, the red and yellow colors are enriched automatically, thus presents human skin with more natural and truer colors. "Natural Skin"
setting is ideal for viewing human portrait and detailed skin texture.
Green Field: When "Green Field" is turned on, the green color is enriched so that football field and mountain landscape would look more natural and fresh. “Green Field” setting is
ideal for watching mountain scenery and outdoor sports.
Sky Blue: When"Sky Blue" is turned on, the color blue is being fine-tuned so that the sky or ocean landscape will look more vivid and in-depth. "Sky Blue" setting is ideal for viewing
sky and ocean images.
Auto Detect:
Demo:
When “Auto Detect” is turned on, every pigment will be detected and self-adjusted to render a lively picture.
Screen divided into two for demonstration purposes.
2) How to use Picture Boost?
Users can change the color settings of a self-selected zone on the screen. The size and position of the selected zone can also be adjusted. "Picture Boost" is located in the fifth icon
labeled "Picture Boost" in the OSD menu. Turn on "Bright Frame" to select a zone on the screen to be enhanced. Please note when adjust or turn on any one of the DCB features, the
rest of color settings including DCR will be disabled or return to default.
Disclaimer: DCB aftereffects are subject to the resolution and quality of the display content, hence may look different than the above illustrations.
DCR Adjustment
What is DCR?
Dynamic Contrast Ratio (DCR) auto adjusts the brightness of the screen so users can see the darker areas of the displayed content in more depths. By increasing the darkness of the
dark areas and the brightness of the bright areas, contrast ratio is uplifted to exceed 2000:1. DCR value varies subject to the original CR values of the LCD module. The higher the
original CR, the higher DCR can be achieved. DCR is great for watching movie or video contents.
How to Use DCR?
Go to the first OSD icon labeled "Luminance", turn on or off DCR as desires. DCR boosts the contrasts between lightness & darkness and enables the viewer to see more layers and
details of the picture, especially in the darker areas. Please note when DCR is on, DCB will be disabled.
DCR Demos:
Disclaimer: DCR aftereffects are subject to the resolution and quality of the display content, hence may look different than the above illustrations.
