HP Display LiteSaver HP Display LiteSaver is a software application, available on the CD, that increases monitor life and saves energy. It allows you to place the monitor into its low power sleep mode at predefined times by shutting down or reducing power to most internal circuits. This helps protect the LCD panel against image retention.
sRGB Support The monitor is designed to support sRGB for color management, which adapts to the color standards used in the image technology industry. To take advantage of the sRGB support, you will need to change the monitor’s color temperature to sRGB and install the sRGB color profile (ICM) file.
Select the RGB Color Space Profile.icm file, then click the OK button. To activate a color profile for the monitor, you must set it as the Default Monitor Profile.
