Natural Color
Natural Color Software Program
One of the recent problems in using a computer is that the color of the images printed out by a printer
or other images scanned by a scanner or a digital camera are not the same as those shown on the
monitor.
The Natural Color S/W is the very solution for this problem. It is a color administration system
developed by Samsung Electronics in association with Korea Electronics & Telecommunications
Research Institute (ETRI).
This system is available only for Samsung monitors and makes the color of the images on the monitor
the same as the printed or scanned images.
For more information, refer to Help (F1) in the software program.
How to install the Natural Color software
Insert the CD included with the Samsung monitor into the CD-ROM Drive. Then, the initial screen of the
program Natural Color will be executed. Click Natural Color on the initial screen to install the Natural
Color software.
To install the program manually, insert the CD included with the Samsung monitor into the CD-ROM
Drive, click the [Start] button of Windows and then select [Execute].
Enter D:\color\eng\setup.exe and then press the [Enter] key.
(If the drive where the CD is inserted is not D:\, enter the applicable drive.)
How to delete the Natural Color software program
Select "Setting" / 'Control Panel" on the "Start" menu and then double-click "Add/Delete a
program".
Select Natural Color from the list and then click the [Add/Delete] button.

Terms
Sync Signal
Sync (Synchronized) Signals refer to the standard signals that are required to display desired colors on
the monitor. They are divided into Vertical and Horizontal Sync Signals. These signals display normal
color images by the set resolution and frequency.
Types of Sync Signals
Separate
This is a scheme of transmitting individual vertical and horizontal sync signals to
the monitor.
Composite
This is a scheme of combining vertical and horizontal sync signals into one
composite signal and transmitting it to the monitor. The monitor displays the
color signals by separating the composite signal into original color signals.
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 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
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 in order 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 'resolution'.
This number shows the accuracy of the display. High resolution is good for performing multiple tasks as
more image information can be shown on the screen.
Example: If the resolution is 1920 x 1200 , this means the screen is composed of 1920 horizontal
dots (horizontal resolution) and 1200 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
A2
This system uses two carriers to transmit voice data. Countries such as South Korea and Germany use
this system.
BTSC
Broadcast Television System Committee
The stereo broadcasting system that is used in most of the countries that have adopted the NTSC
system, including the United States, Canada, Chile, Venezuela and Taiwan. It also refers to the
organization that has been organized to promote its development and management.
EIAJ
Electronic Industries Association of Japan.
RF Cable
A round signal cable generally used for TV antennas.
Satellite Broadcasting
Broadcasting service provided via satellite. Enables high picture quality and clear sound throughout the
country regardless of the location of the viewer.
Sound Balance
Balances the levels of the sound coming from each speaker in televisions with two speakers.
Cable TV
Whereas the terrestrial broadcasting is delivered via frequency signals through the air, cable
broadcasting is transmitted via a cable network. In order to view cable TV, one must purchase a cable
receiver and hook it up to the cable network.
CATV
"CATV" refers to the broadcasting service offered at hotels, schools and other buildings through their
own broadcasting system, apart from VHF or UHF broadcasting by terrestrial broadcasters. The CATV
programs may include movies, entertainment and educational programs. (Different from cable TV.)
CATV can be viewed only within the area in which the CATV service is offered.
S-Video
Short for "Super Video." S-Video allows up to 800 lines of horizontal resolution, enabling high-quality
video.
VHF/UHF
VHF indicates TV channels 2 to 13, and UHF indicates channels 14 through 69.
Channel Fine Tuning
This feature allows the viewer to fine-tune the TV channel to obtain the best viewing conditions. The
Samsung LCD TV has both automatic and manual channel fine-tuning features to enable the viewer to
adjust their desired settings.
External Device Input
External device input refers to video input from such external video devices as VCRs, camcorders and
DVD players, separate from a TV broadcast.
For Better Display
1. Adjust computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) on computer 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: 1920 x 1200
Vertical frequency (refresh rate): 60 Hz
2. When you clean the monitor and the panel outside, please apply the recommended small amount of
cleaner by using soft and dry cloth and polish it. Let LCD area not to be forced but to be scrubbed out
softly.
If excessive force is applied, you can have a stain on it.
3. If you are not satisfied with the quality of picture, you can get better quality of picture by executing
"auto adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window termination button is
pressed.
If there's still noise after automatic adjustment, use FINE/COARSE adjustment function.
4. 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.
5. Do not display a still image( such as on a video game or when hooking up a DVD to this LCD_TV ) on
the Color TFT-LCD ( Thin Film Transister Liquid Crystal Display) panel for a long time as it can cause
screen image retention. This image retention is also known as "screen burn". To avoid such image
retention, reduce the degree of brightness and contrast of this screen when displaying a still image.

AB general requirements
AB2 Written Eco-document acompanying the products
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO'95 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 to the further development of
environmentally-adapted electronic products.
Why do we have environmentally-labelled monitors?
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 monitors
and other electronic equipment are concerned is that environmentally harmful substances are
used both in the products and during their manufacture. Since it has not been possible so far
for the majority of electronic equipment to be recycled in a satisfactory way, most of these
potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter Nature.
There are also other characteristics of a monitor, such as energy consumption levels, that are
important from both the working and natural environment viewpoints. Since all types of
conventional electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (acidic and
climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.) it is vital to conserve energy. Electronic
equipment in offices consumes an enormous amount of energy, since it is often routinely left
running continuously.
What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'95 scheme, which provides for international
environmental labelling of monitors. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the
TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The
Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and NUTEK (The National Board for Industrial and
Technical Development in Sweden).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission
of electrical and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands concern among other things restrictions on the presence and use
of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons), and chlorinated
solvents. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have
an environmental plan, which must be adhered to in each country where the company conducts
its operations policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the monitor 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 monitor 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, along with physical and visual ergonomics and good
usability.

TCO'95 is a co-operative project between(3 logos)
Environmental Requirements
Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and
housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer
casing can consist of flame retardant substances. These are related to another group of
environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to similar harm, including
reproductive damage in fish eating birds and mammals, due to the bioaccumulative processes.
Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in
foetus development may occur.
z TCO'95 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not
contain organically bound chlorine and bromine.
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.
TCO'95 requirement Permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been
developed.
z
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.
TCO'95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per
million) of cadmium. The colour-generating layers of display screens must not contain any
z
cadmium.
Mercury
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. Mercury damages the nervous
system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO'95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per
million) of mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or
electronics components concerned with the display unit.
z
CFCs (freons)
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards and in the manufacturing
of expanded foam for packaging. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone
layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with
consequent increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO'95 requirement: Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the
manufacturing of the product or its packaging.

TCO'99-Ecological requirements for personal computers (TCO'99 applied model only)
Congratulations!
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.
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme which provides for an
international environmental and quality labelling 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),
Statens Energimyndighet(The Swedish National Energy Administration) and SEMKO AB.
The requirements cover a wide range of issuse: environment, ergonomics, usability, reduction
of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical safety.
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?
The environmental demands has been developed by Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The
Swedish Society for Nature Conservation). These 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

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. There is however one exception.
Mercury is, for the time being, permitted in the back light system of flat panel monitors as today
there is no commercially available alternative. TCO aims on removing this exception when a
Mercury free alternative is available.
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.

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.
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 24 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
