LAN Cable
If you have a Dynamic Network, you should use an ADSL modem or router that supports
the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP
automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values your product
needs to access the Internet so you do not have to enter them manually. Most home networks
are Dynamic Networks.
Some networks require a Static IP address. If your network requires a Static IP address, you
must enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values manually on your product
Cable Setup Screen when you set up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet
mask, gateway, and DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If you have a Windows computer, you can also get these values through your computer.
――You can use ADSL modems that support DHCP if your network requires a Static IP address.
――ADSL modems that support DHCP also let you use Static IP addresses.

(1ppm) may be brighter or darker on the panel. This does not affect product performance.
–– The number of sub-pixels by panel type: 6,220,800

•• Run Auto Adjustment to improve the picture quality. If noise is still found even after auto
adjustment, adjust Coarse or Fine.
•• Leaving the screen fixed on a stationary image for an extended period of time may cause
afterimage burn-in or defective pixels.
–– Activate power-saving mode or a dynamic screen saver if you will not be using the
product for an extended period of time.

Prevention of Afterimage Burn-in
What is afterimage burn-in?
Afterimage burn-in should not occur when the LCD panel is operating normally. Normal
operation refers to a continuously changing video pattern. If the LCD panel displays a fixed
pattern for an extended period of time (more than 12 hours), a slight voltage difference may
occur between the electrodes in pixels that control the liquid crystals.
Such a voltage difference between electrodes increases with time and makes the liquid crystals
thinner. When this occurs, a previous image can remain on the screen when the pattern changes.
To prevent this, the accumulated voltage difference should be reduced.
――Afterimage burn-in should not occur when an LCD panel is operating in proper conditions.

Preventing afterimage burn-in
――The best way to protect the product from afterimage burn-in is switching the power off or
setting the PC or system to run a screen saver when not in use. Also, Warranty service may be
limited depending on instruction guide.
•• Powering Off, Screen Saver and Power Saving Mode
–– Power off the product for 2 hours after using it for 12 hours.
–– Go to Display Properties > Power Supply on your PC and set the product to power off as
required.
–– Using a screen saver is recommended.
It is best to use a single-colour or moving-image screen saver.
•• Regular colour Change
–– Use 2 colours
Switch between 2 colours every 30 minutes as shown above.

•• Avoid combinations of a text colour and background colour of contrasting brightness.
(Brightness: refers to the lightness or darkness of a colour which varies depending on the
amount of light emitted.)
――Avoid using grey as it may contribute to afterimage burn-in.
――Avoid using colours of contrasting brightness (black and white; grey).

Terminology
480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i /
1080p____ Each of the scanning
rates above refers to the number of
effective scanning lines that decides
the screen resolution. The scanning
rate may be indicated in i (interlaced)
or p (progressive), depending on the
scanning method.
- Scanning
Scanning refers to a process of
sending pixels that form an image
progressively. A larger number of
pixels will deliver a clearer and more
vivid picture.
- Progressive
In progressive scan mode, all lines
of pixels are scanned one by one
(progressively) on the screen.
- Interlaced
In interlaced scan mode, every
other line of pixels is scanned from
top to bottom first and then the
remaining lines of pixels (that were
not scanned) are scanned.
Non-interlace Mode and Interlace
Mode____ Non-interlace mode
(progressive scan) displays a
horizontal line from the top to the
bottom of a screen progressively.
Interlace mode displays the odd
number lines first and the even
number lines next. Non-interlace
mode is mainly used in monitors
as it produces screen clarity and
interlace mode is mainly used in
TVs.
Vertical Frequency____ The product
displays a single image many times
per second (like a fluorescent light
that flickers) to display an image for
a viewer to see. The rate of a single
image being displayed repeatedly
per second is called vertical
frequency or refresh rate. Vertical
frequency is measured in Hz.
E.g. 60Hz refers to a single image
being displayed 60 times in one
second.
Dot Pitch____ The screen consist of
red, green and blue dots. A shorter
distance between the dots produces
a higher resolution. Dot pitch refers
to the distance between the shortest
distance between dots of the same
colour. Dot pitch is measured in
millimetres.
Horizontal Frequency____ The
time required to scan a single line
from the left to the right side of
the screen is called a horizontal
cycle. The reciprocal number of a
horizontal cycle is called horizontal
frequency. Horizontal frequency is
measured in kHz.
Source____ Input source refers to
a video source device connected to
the product such as a camcorder or
video or DVD player.
Plug & Play____ Plug & Play is a
function that allows the automatic
exchange of information between
a monitor and PC to produce an
optimum display environment.
The product uses VESA DDC
(international standard) to execute
Plug & Play.
Resolution____ Resolution is the
number of horizontal dots (pixels)
and vertical dots (pixels) that
form a screen. It represents the
level of display detail. A higher
resolution enables more data to
be displayed on the screen and is
useful to perform multiple tasks
simultaneously.
E.g. A resolution of 1920 X 1080
consists of 1,920 horizontal pixels
(horizontal resolution) and 1,080
vertical pixels (vertical resolution).
DVD (Digital Versatile Disc)____
DVD refers to a CD-sized mass
storage disk where you can save
multimedia (audio, video or game)
applications using MPEG-2 video
compression technology.
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia
Interface)____ It is an interface that
can be connected to a digital audio
source as well as a high-definition
video source by using a single cable
without compression.
Multiple Display Control (MDC)____
MDC (Multiple Display Control) is
an application that allows multiple
display devices to be controlled
simultaneously using a PC.
Communication between a PC and
monitor takes place using RS232C
(serial data transmission) and RJ45
(LAN) cables.
