    Adjust the refresh rate to 75hz or higher. 9. How do I adjust my monitor's resolution? Available resolutions are determined by the capabilities of your video card and graphic driver. Under Windows '95, you may select the desired available resolution through the 'Display properties/Settings' menu.

    L M N O P Autoscan A microprocessor-based feature of Philips Brilliance monitors is able to detect automatically horizontal and vertical frequencies of input signals with those of the installed video card. An autoscan monitor can thus operate with a wide range of video cards. MultiSync, a registered trademark of NEC, provides a similar function.

    A way of describing the color of a radiating source in terms of the temperature (in degrees Kelvin) of a black body radiating with the same dominant frequency as the source. Most Philips monitors offer the possibility of setting the color temperature to any desired value. Contrast The ratio between the brightness of the brightest and darkest parts of a picture.

RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE DDC (Display Data Channel) DDC is a communication channel for displays and computers. The DDC feature allows the monitor controller to be automatically configured to make optimal use of the display without manual user interaction.

    This is a very advanced feature that allows the user to switch to any required mode at any instant without having to spend time readjusting the picture. It is currently available in most Philips monitors. Dot pitch The shortest distance between two phosphor dots of the same color on the screen.

    authorities. MPR-II The standard originally proposed by the Swedish National Board of Measurement and Testing. It set maximum levels of electromagnetic radiation emitted by monitors, and has now been adopted as a world standard. MPR-II defines maximum permitted electrostatic, magnetic and electric field levels measured at a distance of 50 cm from the center of the monitor (see table).

    Horizontal dot pitch See Dot pitch. Horizontal scanning frequency Also called line frequency and expressed in kHz, it is the number of video lines written on the screen every second (from left to right). The higher the horizontal scanning frequency, the better the resolution (i.e., the higher the resolution and/or the higher the refresh rate).

    RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE Linearity The degree to measure the actual location of a pixel on the screen corresponds with its intended location. ( see figure ) Line frequency See Horizontal scanning frequency. Low-emission monitor A monitor that complies with international standards on radiation. See Electromagnetic radiation standards.

    that monitor emissions are harmful, much effort has gone into reducing emissions on the principle of better safe than sorry. Currently, there are two areas of interest: very-low frequency (VLF) electric and magnetic fields extending from 2 kHz to 400 kHz, and extreme low frequency (ELF) fields extending from 5 Hz to 2 kHz.

  • Page 43

    Overscan The practice in which areas without useful video information are scanned outside the visible screen area in order to make maximum use of the screen for display of active video information. This practice is occasionally necessary because some video cards generate a video pattern that is smaller than the visible screen area, resulting in an image that is smaller (and less legible) than it needs to be.

    Plug-and-Play See DDC. See USB section. RETURN TO TOP OF THE PAGE Raster The area on screen that electron beam can reach. Refresh rate See Vertical scanning frequency. Resolution The number of pixels that can be displayed on the screen. The resolution is specified as the number of pixels in a line multiplied by the number of horizontal lines.

    Anti-Static coatings Due to bombardment by beam electrons, monitor screens become electrically charged when in use. Electrically charged screens surfaces can attract dust particles. An Anti-Static coating is a conductive coating deposited on the screen (or on a glass panel immediately in front of the screen) that conducts away the charge and prevents screen dust build-up.

    See Electromagnetic radiation standards. Tilt function See rotation function. Trapezoid distortion See Geometrical distortion. TTL signal A TTL (Transistor-transistor-logic) signal is a digital signal level for controlling the screen colors. With TTL driving, the red, green and blue signals can only be switched on or off or provided with an intensity signal.

    multiple attachment points. The architecture supports concatenation of multiple hubs. The upstream port of a hub connects the hub towards the host. Each of the other downstream ports of a hub allows connection to another hub or function. Hubs can detect, attach and detach at each downstream port and enable the distribution of power to downstream devices.

    Vertical dot pitch See Dot pitch. Vertical scanning frequency Expressed in Hz, this is the number of fields written to the screen every second in interlaced mode. In non-interlaced mode vertical scanning frequency is the number of frames (complete pictures) written to the screen every second (also known as refresh rate). Vertical sync pulses A train of square shaped waveforms that define the start of a new frame.

    VIS (Viewable Image Size) The real screen dimensions that users can see measured diagonally. The VIS of a monitor is always less than the so called screen size of a monitor. For example, the VIS of a 17-inch monitor is only about 16 inches. It depends on the useful screen size of CRT and the opening of a monitor's front cabinet.
