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 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)
z 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
z Use a Screen saver if possible
- Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended.
z 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)
z
Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance
- Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes
Ex)
z
- 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.
Our LCD Monitor satisfies ISO13406-2 Pixel fault Class II
Features
RTA Monitor
RTA (Response Time Accelerator)
A function that accelerates the response speed of the panel so as to provide a sharper and more
natural video display.
RTA On
Activates the RTA function so that the panel operates at a higher response speed than
its original speed.
RTA OFF Deactivates the RTA function so that the panel operates at its original response speed.
If you turn the power off and on again after switching RTA off, the RTA function is automatically
switched On (Factory Setting)

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 and Non-Interlace Methods
Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom sequentially is called the NonInterlace 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.
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 1680 X 1050 , this means the screen is composed of 1680
horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 1050 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
For Better Display
Adjust computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) oncomputer as described below to
enjoy the best quality of picture. You can have an uneven quality of picture in the screen if the best
quality of picture is not provided in TFT-LCD.
Resolution : 1680 X 1050
Vertical frequency (refresh rate) : 60 Hz
TFT LCD panel manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with precision of 1ppm
(one millionth) 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.

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.
If you view a fixed screen for an extended period of time, residual image or blurriness may appear.
Change the mode to energy save or set a screensaver to moving picture when you need to be away
from the monitor for an extended period of time.
