Overview
What is MagicRotation?
Traditionally, computer displays allowed the user to view only in landscape mode.
In today's information age, more users need to view documents, web pages, emails, etc. in
there day to day life. These types of applications can be better viewed in portrait mode where
the entire contents are available on the screen. This greatly improves the user's productivity
allowing him the flexibility to switch between landscape and portrait modes.
The MagicRotation Software from Samsung Electronics, Inc. provides the user with a rotation
feature (0, 90, 180, 270 orientation) that facilitates the optimum utilization of computer display
screen, better viewing and improved user productivity.
Basic Function
MagicRotation will support Windows™ 98 SE, Me, NT 4.0, 2000, XP Home and XP Professional.

Troubleshooting
Before You Call Technical Support
z
MagicRotation Software works with the installed "Display Driver" supplied by your
Graphic Card Vendor to provide screen rotation capabilities. If the installed "Display
Driver" is working incorrectly or has bugs in it, then these bugs would still exist even
after MagicRotation Software is installed.
Any incorrect/random behaviour resulting due to problems in the installed "Display
Driver" are not due to MagicRotation Software.
In order to verify if a problem exists in the installed "Display Driver" , you can perform
the following diagnostic steps :
1. Check if the problem is occurring in both 0 orientation (Landscape mode) and 90
orientation (Portrait mode).
2. Check if the problem occurs with different color depths (8/16/32 bits per pixel)
and different resolution modes (800 x 600, 1024 x 768).
3. Check if the problem occurs without installing MagicRotation Software.
If the problem is repeating in any/all of the following scenarios then it may be the
problem with your installed "Display Driver" :
In order to correct the problem you need to perform the following steps :
1. Uninstall MagicRotation Software.
2. Obtain the latest "Display Driver" from your Graphic Card Vendor.
The latest "Display Driver" from (ATI, NVIDIA, MATROX, INTEL, etc.) are easily
available for download from their respective websites.
3. Install the latest "Display Driver"
4. Install MagicRotation Software. In most of the cases this should correct the
problem.

What is ImageViewer?
ImageViewer is a viewing program which shows the colors directly on the display device when
an image is captured and created by a camera (Functionality of Monitor Viewer), and shows a
print preview for an image as well (Functionality of Print Viewer). It is an updated version of
PrintViewer.
What is MonitorViewer?
MonitorViewer displays an image in its inherent color space state. For example, when taking a
photo with the camera set to sRGB, you can set your ImageViewer to the sRGB color space and
view your photo as it was taken.
Thus, you can view your photos on a display device with the same settings as when they were
taken. In addition, you can view photos taken in the sRGB color space, in AdobeRGB or another
color space. This has the advantage of knowing how a color space creates image effects
without actually taking a photo in that color space.
What is PrintViewer?
PrintViewer has the same function as the already existing PrintViewer. It shows a print preview
of an image so that you know what it looks like when it is printed.
Using MonitorViewer
Step 01. Select a Folder
Select the folder that contains your photos using the File View window.
Step 02. Select a Photo

Select a target profile while checking the image information, or select a color space.
Step 05. Image Information
Caution
To view the image information, you must select an image and then select the
checkbox next to the image information. The image information is displayed on
the right of the screen and the image information is generated when the image
is created. It might not be generated when using an editing tool, depending on
the settings of the camera that created that image.
Using PrintViewer
Step 01. Select a Folder

Installing Natural Color Expert and Installation Requirements
Installing Natural Color Expert on your PC.
The following requirements must be met to run Natural Color Expert. Please verify whether the following
requirements are met before continuing the installation.
If all requirements listed above have been met, run Natural Color Expert on your PC. If the Color
Calibration OSD is displayed when the monitor menu key is pressed, it means it is available.
Natural Color Expert will not run if your monitor is in dual mode.
Natural Color Expert
Natural Color Expert is a program developed by Samsung to maximize and optimize the capability of the
Syncmaster XL20 monitor for broad color bands. It was developed to adjust the color characteristic
offsets for each monitor which can occur due to mass production. A Color Calibrator is provided which
allows the color characteristics of your monitor to be calibrated according to your needs.
With Natural Color Expert, you can create an icc profile for your monitor only. If required, you can also
create an icc profile with some changed monitor characteristics. Save this icc profile to your PC and as
the color mode of your monitor also, which allows you to view colors in a defined color space just by
changing the color mode of your monitor. You do not need to use a separate CMS program such as
Photoshop.
Natural Color Expert contains four (4) tabs: Calibration, Emulation, Uniformity, and Miscellaneous. The
Calibration tab allows you to create an icc file. The Emulation tab allows you to change the monitor
characteristics by converting color bands. The Uniformity tab allows you to enhance the uniformity of
your monitor. The Miscellaneous tab measures the current status of your monitor.
|
Calibration

Calibration
With the Calibration tab, you can create an icc profile with the settings you configure.
You can also create an icc profile with adjustments of the maximum brightness, black level,
|
gamma, and white point, except for the color bands. All created icc profiles are saved in the
"C:WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color" folder. You can also use an icc profile as the
monitor profile in a CMS program such as Photoshop. In addition, you can save the settings in
this tab as the calibration mode which constitutes a part of the color mode of your monitor. Once
saved, you can easily select the saved set of settings using the Mode button.
However, you can only save one set of settings for the calibration mode of your monitor. That is,
only the most recently saved set of settings is available and valid.
How to use
Select the values.
Brightness :
The target brightness: Select your personal maximum brightness.
Adjust Black Level : Select a black level.
Color Coordinate :
White Point : Directly enter a coordinate, or move the white slider
on the blue bar to the required value position.
Gamma :
Select Gamma values for the R, G, and B components.
If you have selected your personal settings, click the Start button.
If the window shown in the figure above (▲) appears, click the Start button again.
If the window shown in the figure above (▲) appears, attach your Calibrator as shown in
the figure above and click the Proceed button. Calibration will start.
To exit the program during the calibration, press the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys and click Finish.
After completing the calibration, the window shown in the figure below will appear. Then
remove your Calibrator and click the OK button.
The calibrated values will now be shown. Verify the values, and click the Save button to
save the settings.
Type in a name for the profile and click the OK button.
You will be asked whether to save the calibrated settings to your monitor. To save them,
click the OK button. It takes some time to save these settings. The calibrated settings saved
on the monitor are saved as the calibration mode which constitutes a part of the color mode
of your monitor. From now on, your monitor will use the saved settings whenever calibration
mode is selected.
When finished, click the Cancel button.
When exiting the program after saving the changed settings as the calibration mode, the
color mode of your monitor will change to the just saved current calibration mode. If the
program is not exited normally because communication to the monitor is disconnected, the
“Color Calibration” message will appear when pressing the OSD. If this occurs, run the
program again and exit it normally.

Using the Emulation tab, you can create a new profile that contains your selected settings, apply
an existing profile, or apply a stereotype of a system profile. Different from a profile created from
the Calibration tab, you can also change the R, G, and B color gamma. Of course, you cannot use
a gamma value beyond the range of gamma values that can be expressed by your Edison
monitor.
How to use
To emulate using a new set of settings,
select your values.
Brightness :
The target brightness: Select your personal maximum brightness.
Adjust Black Level : Select a black level.
Color Coordinate :
White Point : Directly enter a coordinate, or move the white slider
on the blue bar to the required value position.
Gamma :
Select Gamma values for the R, G, and B components.
To apply a created profile to your monitor,
To create a monitor profile using a system profile or an existing profile created, select a profile
from the Profile list and click the Start button. If your profile is not in the list, click the Load
Profile button and select it.
When selecting a profile for which you already performed emulation, you can skip step 2 in the
Calibration section and apply the settings directly by clicking the Apply Now button. However,
downloading the settings to your monitor is not possible because it is assumed that downloading
them was already performed at the early stage of execution. Therefore, if you want to download
the settings to your monitor, you should not click the Apply Now button and you should proceed
with step 2 described in the Calibration section.
These are the same as steps 2 and 3 of Calibration. They show the emulated values.
Verify the values, and click the Save button to save the settings.
Type in a name for the profile and click the OK button.
You will be asked whether to save the emulated settings to your monitor. To save, click the
OK button. It will take some time to save these settings. The emulated settings saved in the
monitor are saved as the emulation mode which constitutes a part of the color mode of your
monitor. From now on, your monitor will be displayed with the saved settings whenever
emulation mode is selected.
When finished, click the Exit button.
When exiting the program after saving the changed settings as the emulation mode, the
color mode of your monitor will change to the just saved current emulation mode. If the
program is not exited normally because communication to the monitor is disconnected, the
"Color Calibration" message will appear when pressing the OSD. If this occurs, run the
program again and exit it normally.

Terms
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
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.
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 1600 x 1200 , this means the screen is composed of 1600
horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 1200 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
For Better Display
1. 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.

PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free)
LCD Monitors and TVs may have an image retention when switching from one image to another
especially after displaying a stationary image for a long time.
This guide is to demonstrate a 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)
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
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)
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
