GLOSSARY Afterimage The Afterimage is particular to LCD monitors when the monitor screen is left on for a long period without use. The “Afterimage” can be removed gradually by changing the displayed image. Clock With the analog input signal display, the analog signal is converted to a digital signal by the LCD circuitry. To convert the signal correctly, the LCD monitor needs to produce the same number clock pulse as the dot clock of the graphics system. When the clock pulse is not correctly set, some vertical bars of distortion are displayed on the screen. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) A digital flat panel interface. DVI can transmit digital data from the PC directly without loss with the signal transition method “TMDS”. There are two kinds of DVI connectors. One is DVI-D connector for digital signal input only. The other is DVI-I connector for both digital and analog signal inputs. DVI DMPM (DVI Digital Monitor Power Management) The Power management system for the digital interface. The “Monitor ON” status (operation mode) and the “Active Off” status (power-saving mode) are indispensable for the DVI-DMPM as the monitor’s power mode. EIZO MPMS (EIZO Monitor PowerManager Signaling) EIZO MPMS, “EIZO Monitor PowerManager Signaling” also enables power saving on the monitor side. EIZO MPMS recognizes video signals from the PC when the PC is in a power saving mode and reduces energy consumption of the monitor. Gain Adjustment Adjusts each color parameter for red, green and blue. The color of the LCD monitor is displayed through the color filter of the LCD panel. Red, green and blue are the three primary colors. The colors on the monitor are displayed by combining these three colors. The color tone can change by adjusting the illumination amount passed through each color’s filter. Gamma Generally, the relationship that the light intensity values of a monitor change nonlinearly to the input signal level is called “Gamma Characteristic”. On the monitor, low gamma values display the whitish images and high gamma values display the high contrast images. 44 9. GLOSSARY English Phase The phase adjustment decides the sampling timing point for converting the analog input signal to a digital signal. Adjusting the phase after the clock adjustment will produce a clear screen. Range Adjustment The Range Adjustment controls the level of output signal range to display the whole color gradation. Resolution The LCD panel consists of a fixed number of pixel elements which are illuminated to form the screen image. The EIZO L985EX display panel consists of 1600 horizontal pixels and 1200 vertical pixels. At a resolution of 1600 x 1200, all pixels are displayed as a full screen. sRGB (Standard RGB) “International Standard for Red, Green and Blue color space” A color space was defined with the aim of the color matching between applications and hardware devices, such as monitors, scanners, printers and digital cameras. As a standard default space, sRGB allows Internet users to closely match colors. Temperature Color temperature is a method to measure the white color tone, generally indicated in degrees Kelvin. At high temperatures the white tone appears somewhat blue, while at lower temperatures it appears somewhat red. Computer monitors generally give best performance at high temperature settings. 5,000K: Often used in printing industry. 6,500K: Good for video-image display. 9,300K: Default setting for your EIZO monitor. TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling) A signal transition method for the digital interface VESA DPMS (Video Electronics Standard Association – Display Power Management Signaling) The acronym VESA stands for “Video Electronics Standards Association” and DPMS stands for “Display Power Management Signaling.” DPMS is a communication standard that PCs and graphics boards use to implement power savings on the monitor side. 9.

Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics products. Why do we have environmentally labelled computers? In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature. There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy. What does labelling involve? This product meets the requirements for the TCO’99 scheme which provides for international and environmental labelling of personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration). Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety. The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user. Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability. You will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product on the right. The complete environmental criteria document may be ordered from: TCO Development SE-114 94 Stockholm, Sweden Fax: +46 8 782 92 07 Email (Internet): firstname.lastname@example.org Current information regarding TCO’99 approved and labelled products may also be obtained via the Internet, using the address: http://www.tco-info.com/ Environmental Requirements Flame retardants Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur. The relevant TCO’99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available. Cadmium** Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that batteries, the colour-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium. Mercury** Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the labelled unit. CFCs (freons) The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the product.
