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 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 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 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 1680 x 1050, this means the screen is composed of 1680 horizontal
dots (horizontal resolution) and 1050 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 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.
DVD
A type of digital disk technology that takes up only the benefits of CD and LD, to implement a high
resolution/quality, which enables the user to enjoy clearer images.
DTV Broadcasting (Digital TV Broadcasting)
An enhanced broadcasting technology to process digital video signals using a set-top box, which
implements a high resolution and clearer digital images on the screen.
LNA (Low Noise Amplifier)
This derives from artificial satellite technology that amplifies weak signals even in poor reception areas
for sharper images.
Antenna Converter
A connection part that is used to link a Wide antenna cable (feeder cable) to the TV.
English Caption (= Caption Setting)
A kind of language selection feature that provides English subtitles (caption) or character information
services from broadcasting services (ex: AFKN) or video tapes (marked CC), and which are especially
useful for studying English.
Multiplex Broadcasting
This enables the user to enjoy the broadcasting service in both Korean and foreign (original) language
as well as in stereo mode.
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.
DVI
DVI is the acronym for Digital Video Interface. It is a new type of video interface technology that provides
the maximum screen quality for high quality display devices and high-end graphics cards including flat
panel LCD monitors.
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
This is an interface that connects both quality video signals and digital audio signals with a cable without
any compression.
- HD (High Definition)
In HD, 1080-line, 2x density beaming (1080i) is used. HD provides a five times clearer screen quality
than the existing analog method and has a wide 16:9 aspect ratio.
- SD (Standard Definition)
In HD, 480-line, double beaming (480i) is used. SD provides a screen quality somewhere between
HD and the existing analog method. It exhibits a two times better screen quality than analog TV.
SRS TruSurround XT
This feature outputs sonorous and vivid 3D sound as for 5.1 channel speaker sound but through a 2channel speaker. It has a good effect when stereo signals are input.
For Better Display
1. Adjust the computer resolution and screen inection rate (refresh rate) on the computer as described
below to enjoy the best picture quality. You can have an uneven picture quality on screen if the best
picture quality is not provided for TFT-LCD.

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.
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)
z Turn the power off when using a stationary pattern.
- Turn the power off for 4 hours after 20 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
