Sync Signal
Service Center
Terms
Regulatory
Natural Color
For Better Display
Authority
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 sync signals to the monitor.
Composite
This is a scheme of combining vertical 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.
Sync On Green
This scheme does not use sync signals. Instead, it combines horizontal and
vertical sync signals into a Green signal and transmits to the monitor. It is mainly
used for workstations.
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. In this case,
flickering of the screen can be detected. To avoid this problem, there is a Flicker-free Mode
using a vertical frequency over 70 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 Non-Interlace
method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace method. The NonInterlace 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 1024 X 768, this means the screen is composed of 1024 horizontal dots
(horizontal resolution) and 768 vertical lines (vertical resolution).
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 Monet 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.

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 country where the company implements its
operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, 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 computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete
environmental criteria document may be ordered from:

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.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-accumulative.
