Hardware Requirements

The G72 Color Monitor is designed to operate with system units or graphic adapters that generate a video output signal that falls within the specifications below:
  • Max addressability (pels): 1280 x 1024
  • Horizontal frequency (kHz): 30-69
  • Vertical frequency (Hz): 50-160
NOTE: Horizontal and vertical sync signal timings are critical in order to achieve acceptable screen images. As a consequence, support for all possible variations in H/V sync timings for any display mode cannot be stated.

National Language Support for Asia Pacific, Canada, Europe/Middle East/Africa, Latin America is a function of the graphic adapter in the system unit and the application or support software.

Software Requirements

The G72 Color Monitor features factory-preset and user-settable display modes. The actual display modes that are used are a function of the attaching system unit, its operating system, and application software.

Factory presets: 9
User locations: 8

Includes one 3270/5250 mode.

NOTE:

NI = Non-interlaced
VESA = Video Electronics Standards Association

The factory-preset modes cannot be overwritten, but any of them can be adjusted to personal choice. The new settings are automatically stored in one of the user locations and are recalled each time that mode is used. The factory settings for the mode in use, if any, can be restored by operating the Geometry Reset control.

It may be necessary to make some adjustments to the displayed picture to compensate for variations in video signal timings. The user controls can be used to make these adjustments.

Compatibility

The monitor is supplied with an attached video signal cable. This cable has the same 15-Pin, D-shell video connector for system unit connection as previous monitors.

Supported systems

The monitor has been tested for compatibility with the following PC systems:

The monitor has been tested for compatibility with the following 3270/5250 systems (M/T 3483/3488):


ModeSupportedSignal AdapterRefresh RateISO CompliantPower Management
2Yes96G199975HzYesYes

4Yes96G199975HzNoYes
5Yes96G199975HzNoYes
6Yes96G199975HzNoYes

If the signal cable adapter (P/N 96G1999) is not used,this mode can be supported at 60Hz refresh rate. The mode will not be ISO compliant, and power management will not function.

The monitor have been tested for compatability with the following Network Stations:

8361-100 (Ethernet)
8361-200 (Token-Ring)
  • Video Chip Set: S3 Trio 64+
  • Video Memory: 1MB Standard (upgradeable to 2MB)

A signal cable adapter, part number 96G1999 is required to permit attachment to 3483, 3488-V, and 3489 Modular Display Stations.

Limitations

  • Not all available display modes run at the high refresh rates necessary for flicker-free performance. Display modes at lower refresh rates are available for compatibility with older graphics adapters and system units.
  • Supported display modes are a function of the attaching system unit. The full range of display modes available with these monitors may not be available or supported with all combinations of system units, their operating systems, and application software.
  • Horizontal and vertical sync signal timings are critical in order achieve acceptable screen images. As a consequence, support for all possible variations in H/V sync timings for any display mode cannot be stated.
  • The number of colors shown in any display mode is not limited by the monitor but depends upon the capabilities of the adapter the monitor is attached to.
  • The power management function is invoked only after initiating signals are received from the attached system unit and/or graphics adapter. The method used to implement power management follows the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Display Power Management Signalling (DPMS) standard. This standard must also be implemented in the attaching system unit and/or graphics adapter for monitor power management to be effective.
  • Implementation of monitor Plug and Play follows the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Display Data Channel (DDC) standard. This standard must also be implemented in the attaching system unit hardware and software to be effective.
  • Not all system units are DDC-enabled. In this situation, the user is required to perform the configuration necessary to obtain optimum performance from the system/graphic adapter/monitor combination.

Cable Orders

A video signal cable is supplied. It is 1.8 meters (6 ft) long with a 15-pin, mini D-shell connector.
