TÜV Rheinland “Low Blue Light Content” is a certification for products which meet requirements for lower
blue light levels. When Eye Saver Mode is 'On', the blue light that wavelength is around 400nm will
decrease, and it will provide an optimum picture quality suitable for eye relaxation. At the same time, the
blue light level is lower than in the default settings, and it was tested by TÜV Rheinland and certified as it
met the requirements of TÜV Rheinland “Low Blue Light Content” standards.

Configuring the PIP/PBP Settings
PIP/PBP
The PIP (Picture in Picture) function separates the screen into two parts. One source device is displayed
on the main screen at the same time the another source device is displayed in inset windows.
The PBP (Picture by Picture) function separates the screen in half displaying output from two different
source devices simultaneously on the left and right sides of the screen.

Compatible with Windows7 and Windows8.

The PIP/PBP function may not be available depending on the specifications of the graphics card
used. If the screen is blank in PIP/PBP mode when the optimum resolution is selected, go to
Control Panel → Display → Screen Resolution and click Detect on the PC.
(Instructions are based on Windows 7.) If the screen is blank when the resolution is set to the
optimum resolution, change the resolution to 1280 x 1024.

The screen may flicker briefly or appear after a delay when you enable or disable the PIP/PBP
function or when you change the screen size with the PIP/PBP function activated.
This can typically arise when a PC and a monitor are connected to two or more input sources.
It has nothing to do with the performance of a monitor.
The issue is mainly caused when the video signals are delayed in transmission to the monitor
depending on the graphics card performance.

U24E850R
To maximize the picture quality and sound can be normal output, it is recommended to use a
graphics card or DVD that supports 4K (3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz) resolution when connect HDMI
port.

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.

Terminology
OSD (On Screen Display)
On screen display (OSD) allows you to customize on-screen settings to optimize the picture quality as
required. You can 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 85000 times per second. 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
115
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 1920 horizontal pixels (horizontal resolution) and 1080
vertical lines (vertical resolution).
E.g. A resolution of 1920 x 1200 consists of 1920 horizontal pixels (horizontal resolution) and 1200
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.
