Allows up to three inputs (VGA, DVI-I and DVI-D) to be connected to a single monitor and for each of the three signals to be displayed with the press of a button.
Digital Uniformity Compensation
Reduces screen uniformity errors and compensates for differences in color/grayscale and luminance using new signal processing circuitry.
Delivers wide viewing angles of up to 178º horizontally and vertically (up to 89º up, down, left and right) with less color shift and without any glare, reflection or distortion.
Rapid Response™
Delivers virtually uninterrupted, undistorted viewing of high-speed, full-motion video.
Automatically adjusts the backlight depending on the brightness of ambient lighting conditions. It also tells the monitor to enter power saving mode whenever the ambient lighting falls below a predetermined value (like when lights are shut off at the end of the day), which can significantly reduce energy consumption.
Equalizes the video signal to eliminate color halos on long cable runs.
No Touch Auto Adjust™
Allows the monitor to be automatically adjusted to optimal image settings when initially turned on.
