LCD Panel
When the monitor is cold and brought into a room or the room
temperature goes up quickly, dew condensation may occur inside
and outside the monitor. In that case, do not turn the monitor on
and wait until dew condensation disappears, otherwise it may
cause some damages to it.
In order to suppress the luminosity change by long-term use and to
maintain the stable luminosity, use of a monitor in lower
brightness is recommended.
The screen may have defective pixels. These pixels may appear as
slightly light or dark area on the screen. This is due to the
characteristics of the panel itself, and not the product.
The backlight of the LCD panel has a fixed life span. When the
screen becomes dark or begins to flicker, please contact your
dealer.
Do not press on the panel or edge of the frame strongly, as this
may result in damage to the screen. There will be prints left on the
screen if the pressed image is dark or black. If pressure is
repeatedly applied to the screen, it may deteriorate or damage
your LCD panel. Leave the screen white to decrease the prints.
Do not scratch or press on the panel with any sharp objects, such
as a pencil or pen as this may result in damage to the panel. Do
not attempt to brush with tissues as this may scratch the LCD
panel.

GLOSSARY
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.
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.
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.
38
9. GLOSSARY
English
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. This products’ display panel consists of 1280 horizontal
pixels and 1024 vertical pixels. At a resolution of 1280 x 1024, 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.
5,000 K: Slightly reddish white.
6,500 K: Warm-white tone, similar to white paper or daylight.
9,300 K: Slightly bluish white.
TMDS
(Transition Minimized Differential Signaling)
A signal transition method for the digital interface.
VESA DPMS
(Video Electronics Standards 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.

You have just purchased a TCO’99 approved and labelled
product! 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:

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. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing
printed circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the
stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with e.g. increased risks
of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a consequence.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages
the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning.
The relevant TCO’99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet
been developed.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are haevy metals which are Bio-accumulative.
