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 colour intensity that show variations 
of colour 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.

Dot Pitch____ The product and screen 
consist of red, green and blue dots.
A shorter distance between the dots 
produces a higher resolution. Dot pitch 
refers to the distance between the 
shortest distance between dots of the 
same colour. Dot pitch is measured in 

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.

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).

Plug & Play____ The Plug & Play 
feature allows the automatic exchange 
of information between a monitor and 
PC to produce an optimum display 
The monitor uses VESA DDC 
(international standard) to execute Plug 
& Play.
