Screen saver
This product has a built-in screen saver function

brightness will decrease if an almost still image is
displayed for more than 30 minutes during the
HDR display.

On Image Smearing

Due to an LCD's panel structure and
characteristics of materials in its design,
continuously displaying signals or/and image
patterns may cause image smearing or/and
flicker on the monitor. If such a problem occurs,
perform monitor aging for a while with the video
displayed on the monitor.

On a Long Period of Use

Due to an LCD's panel structure and
characteristics of materials in its design,
displaying static images for extended periods, or
using the unit repeatedly in a high temperature/
high humidity environments may cause image
smearing, burn-in, areas of which brightness is
permanently changed, lines, or a decrease in
overall brightness.
In particular, continually displaying an image
smaller than the monitor screen, such as
displaying an image in a different aspect ratio or
displaying an image with a frame, may expedite
the above issues.
Avoid displaying a still image for an extended
period, or using the unit repeatedly in a high
temperature/high humidity environment such
an airtight room, or around the outlet of an air
To prevent any of the above issues, we
recommend reducing brightness slightly, and to
turn off the power whenever the unit is not in

On High Brightness Display

Using the unit with the high brightness display
for extended periods may cause eyestrain or
reduction of eyesight. Be sure to take an
occasional break when using.
"Guidance for the reduction of photosensitive
epileptic seizures caused by television" or
other guidelines when using.
In the HDR display, the display surface may
emit heat when high brightness images are
output. Do not touch the surface.
When "2.4(HDR)," "S-Log3(HDR)," "S-Log2(HDR),"
"SMPTE ST 2084(HDR)," "ITU-R BT.2100(HLG),"
or "S-Log3(Live HDR)" is selected for "EOTF" in
the "Input Setting" menu, images are displayed
in HDR (High Dynamic Range). In this manual,
this status is described as "HDR display."
The HDR display is a method to faithfully
display the brightness of signals defined of
100% or more level without compressing the
brightness parts.
You can check the bright portions exceeding
the displayable brightness of the unit by
decreasing the contrast.
