10.4 PowerSaver
The power-saving function of this product reduces power consumption by switching off the screen and
changing the color of the power LED if the product is not used for a specified period of time.
The power is not turned off in power-saving mode. To switch the screen back on, press any key on the
keyboard or move the mouse. Power-saving mode functions only when the product is connected to a
PC that has a power-saving function.

10.5 Standard Signal Mode Table

This product can be set to only one resolution for each screen size to obtain the optimum picture
quality due to the nature of the panel. Therefore, a resolution other than the specified resolution
may degrade the picture quality. To avoid this, it is recommended that you select the optimum
resolution specified for the screen size of your product.

Check the frequency when you exchange a CDT monitor (connected to a PC) for an LCD monitor.
If the LCD monitor does not support 85Hz, change the vertical frequency to 60Hz using the CDT
monitor before you exchange it with the LCD monitor.
If a signal that belongs to the following standard signal modes is transmitted from your PC, the screen will
automatically be adjusted. If the signal transmitted from the PC does not belong to the standard signal
modes, the screen may be blank even though the power LED turns on. In such a case, change the
settings according to the following table by referring to the graphics card user manual.

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.

Vertical Frequency
Repeating the same picture dozens of times per second allows you to view natural pictures. The
repeat frequency is called "vertical frequency" or "refresh rate" and is indicated in Hz.

Terminology
OSD(On Screen Display)
On screen display (OSD) allows you to configure on-screen settings to optimize the picture quality as
required. It allows you to change the screen brightness, tint, size and many other settings using
menus displayed on the screen.
Gamma
The Gamma menu adjusts the grey scale that represents middle tones on the screen. Adjusting the
brightness brightens the whole screen, but adjusting Gamma only brightens the medium brightness.
Grey scale
Scale refers to levels of color intensity that show variations of color change from darker areas to
brighter areas on the screen. Changes to the screen brightness are expressed with black and white
variation, and grey scale refers to the medium area between black and white. Changing the grey scale
through Gamma adjustment will change the medium brightness on the screen.
Scanning rate
Scanning rate, or refresh rate, refers to the frequency of screen refreshes. Screen data is transmitted
as it refreshes to display an image, although the refreshing is invisible to the naked eye. The number of
screen refreshes is called scanning rate and is measured in Hz. A scanning rate of 60Hz means that
the screen refreshes 60 times per second. The screen scanning rate depends on the performance of
the graphics cards in your PC and monitor.
Horizontal Frequency
Characters or images displayed on the monitor screen consist of numerous dots (pixels). Pixels are
transmitted in horizontal lines, which are then arranged vertically to create an image. The horizontal
frequency is measured in kHz and represents how many times horizontal lines per second are
transmitted and displayed on the monitor screen. A horizontal frequency of 85 means that the
horizontal lines that make up an image are transmitted 85 000 times per second, and the horizontal
frequency is indicated in 85kHz.
Vertical Frequency
One image is made of numerous horizontal lines. The vertical frequency is measured in Hz and
represents how many images can be created per second by those horizontal lines. A vertical
frequency of 60 means that an image is transmitted 60 times per second. The vertical frequency is
also called "refresh rate" and affects screen flicker.
Appendix
105
Appendix
Resolution
Resolution is the number of horizontal pixels and vertical pixels that form a screen. It represents the
level of display detail.
A higher resolution displays a greater amount of information on the screen and is suitable for
performing multiple tasks at the same time.
E.g. A resolution of 1920 x 1080 consists of 1,920 horizontal pixels (horizontal frequency) and 1,080
vertical lines (vertical resolution).
Plug & Play
The Plug & Play feature allows the automatic exchange of information between a monitor and PC to
produce an optimum display environment.
The monitor uses VESA DDC (international standard) to execute Plug & Play.
