Class B Equipment (Information Communication equipment for residential use)
This product complies with the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directives for residential use and can
be used in all areas including common residential areas. (Class B equipment emits less electromagnetic
waves than Class A equipment.)
PowerSaver
This monitor has a built-in power management system called PowerSaver. This system saves energy
by switching your monitor to low-power mode when it has not been used for a certain amount of time.
The monitor automatically returns to normal operation when you press a key on the keyboard. For
energy conservation, turn your monitor OFF when it is not needed, or when leaving it unattended for
long periods. The PowerSaver system operates with a VESA DPM compliant video card installed in
your computer. Use the software utility installed on your computer to set up this feature.

For Better Display
Adjust the computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) on the computer
as described below to enjoy the best picture quality. You can have an uneven picture quality
on screen if the best picture quality is not provided for TFT-LCD.

TFT-LCD panels manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with a
precision of 1ppm (one millionth) and above is used for this product. But the pixels of RED,
GREEN, BLUE and WHITE color seem to be bright sometimes or some of black pixels
could be seen. This is not from bad quality and you can use it without any problems.
•
For example, the number of TFT-LCD sub pixels contained in this product are
3,888,000.
When cleaning the monitor and the panel outside, please apply the recommended small
amount of cleaner by using a soft cloth to polish. Do not force the LCD area but rub softly.
If excessive force is applied, you may stain it.
If you are not satisfied with the picture quality, you can get better quality of picture by
performing the "Auto Adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window
termination button is pressed.
If there's still noise after the automatic adjustment, use the Fine/Coarse adjustment function.
When viewing a fixed screen for an extended period of time, a residual image or blurriness may appear.
Change the mode to energy save or set a screensaver to move the picture when you need
to be away from the monitor for an extended period of time.
PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free)
LCD Monitors and TVs may have image retention when switching from one image to another especially after displaying a stationary image for a long time.
This guide is to demonstrate correct usage of LCD products in order to protect them from Image
retention.
Warranty
Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention.
Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.
What is Image retention ?
During normal operation of a LCD panel, pixel image retention doesn't occur. However, if
the same image is displayed for a long time, a slight difference in electric charge accumulates between the two electrodes which encase the liquid crystal. This may cause the liquid
crystal to build up in a certain areas of the display. Thus, the previous image is retained
62
Information
when switching to a new video image. All display products, including LCD, are subject to
image retention. This is not a product defect.
Please follow the suggestions below to protect your LCD from image retention.
Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode
Ex)
•
•
Turn the power off when using a stationary pattern.
•
Turn the power off for 4 hours after 20 hours in use
•
Turn the power off for 2 hours after 12 hours in use
Use a Screen saver if possible
•
•
Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended.
Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme.
Suggestions for specific applications
Ex) Airports, Transit Stations, Stock Markets, Banks, and Controlling Systems We recommend that you follow set up of your display system program as below:
Display Information together with Logo or Moving image cycle.
Ex) Cycle : Display Information for 1 hour followed by a Display Logo or moving image
for 1 minute.
Change the Color Information periodically (Use 2 different colors).
Ex) Rotate the Color Information with 2 colors every 30 minutes.
Avoid using a combination of characters and background color with large difference in
luminance.
Avoid using Grey colors, which can cause Image retention easily.
•
Avoid: Colors with big difference in luminance (Black & White, Grey)
Ex)
•
Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance
•
Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes
63
Information
Ex)
•
Every 30 minutes, change the characters with movement.
Ex)
The best way to protect your monitor from Image retention is to set your PC or System
to operate a Screen Saver program when you are not using it.
Image retention may not occur when a LCD panel is operated under normal conditions.
Normal conditions are defined as continuously changing video patterns. When the LCD
panel is operated for a long time with a fixed pattern (-over 12 hours-), there may be slight
difference in voltage between electrodes that work the liquid crystal (LC) in a pixel. The
voltage difference between electrodes increases with time, forcing the liquid crystal to lean.
When this occurs, the previous image may be seen when the pattern is changed.
To prevent this, the accumulated voltage difference must be decreased.

Dot Pitch
The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots.
The closer the dots, the higher the resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot Pitch'. Unit:
mm
Vertical Frequency
The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to
create and display an image for the user. The frequency of this
repetition per second is called the Vertical Frequency or Refresh
Rate. Unit: Hz
Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this
is regarded as 60 Hz.
Horizontal Frequency
The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge
of the screen horizontally is called the Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit: kHz
Interlace
Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom sequentially is called the Non-Interlace method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace
method. The Non-Interlace method is used for the majority of
monitors to ensure a clear image. The Interlace method is the same
as that used in TVs.
and
Non-Interlace
Plug & Play
This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user
by allowing the computer and the monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international standard
VESA DDC for the Plug & Play function.
Resolution
The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the
screen image is called the 'resolution'. This number shows the accuracy of the display. A high resolution is good for performing
multiple tasks as more image information can be shown on the
screen.
Example: If the resolution is 1440 x 900 , this means the screen is
composed of 1440 horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 900
vertical lines (vertical resolution).
