TITLE: HP Display Assistant Utility VERSION: 1.30 Rev. A DESCRIPTION: This package contains the HP Display Assistant Utility for the listed HP monitor models. The HP Display Assistant Utilty is a monitor control and calibration program that offers an easy step-by-step process for obtaining the best overall picture quality. Monitor performance can vary due to the graphics card, host computer, lighting conditions, and other environmental factors. To get the best image on a monitor, it must be adjusted for the unique setting where it is placed. Unfortunately, the manual controls available to tune the image often prove to be challenging. Proper adjustment (tuning) requires an easy-to-use program that provides a step-by-step process to obtain the best overall picture quality. The HP Display Assistant guides users through the tuning process with easy-to-understand instructions and background patterns designed for each monitor control. The display settings for each user can be saved, providing an easy way to select display characteristics in a multi-user environment, or to save multiple defined presets for a single user based on content and ambient lighting. The HP Display Assistant enables monitor adjustment and color tuning using the Display Data Channel Command Interface (DDC/CI) protocol. All adjustments to the display are controlled through software to eliminate the need to use the monitor on-screen display (OSD). HP Display Assistant runs in the background and can be accessed through the Task tray, Start menu, or by right-clicking in a blank area of the desktop. The HP Display Assistant enables quick, accurate tuning of the display, with the ability to easily save and use monitor configurations that are best suited to the user. The HP Display Assistant has two modes of operation: Wizard and OSD mode. The preferred method of use is Wizard mode, which provides a step-by-step process to accurately calibrate the monitor. OSD mode enables changes to any single monitor setting without stepping through a predefined sequence. This method is less accurate than Wizard mode, but enables easy access to any monitor adjustment.
