The displays on today’s laptops and projectors often have a lot of options, but many users don’t realize it. However, it is very easy for everyone to modify the visual world according to the content that is currently playing, thus creating the best possible image quality. In this article, we’ll cover this topic and also try to give advice on what to look for, what each term means, and how to set up your notebook’s display and monitors.
It should be noted here that monitors, i.e. separate monitors, promise a number of advantages over screens built into laptops. On the other hand, it can be larger, as you need to reach 14-17 inches with an average laptop, and 32-34 inches is not uncommon with screens.
In addition, the cheaper pieces also provide some features and additional functions necessary for most laptops, and certain settings can be changed in more detail. For this reason, you may also want to consider getting a monitor if you are comfortable with your laptop and not considering a desktop computer.
screens: This is a slap in the face; You only need to find the control panel located on the back or side of the housing, which can consist of buttons or a steering wheel with a small stick. The menu with individual parameters and functions can be called up at the touch of a button. Unfortunately, we cannot talk about a unified design, so the GUI looks different for each manufacturer, but there are no such huge differences. While televisions have long been the basis for Hungarian language communication, this is not uncommon on screens for some reason. So, if someone is not good at foreign languages, you may need to improve the image quality with the help of a dictionary.
Notebooks: For Windows 10 laptops (and it’s recommended!) on most devices today, right-clicking on an empty area of the screen will bring up a window. Here you must select the menu item “Display settings”. Some options are already available here, but for more detailed settings Click “Advanced display settings”, then “Display driver properties” and select the “Color management” tab, then the “Advanced” tab and click “Display calibration”. It sounds complicated, but it’s nothing sinister.
Brightness, contrast and colors
First, we turn on the options available on both monitors and laptops.
the decision: It is worth placing it as high as possible. If the characters are too small after that, they can be resized separately so the details don’t deteriorate.
brightness: This is not addressed by many, although imperfect brightness can strain the eyes if it is too low, if it is too high, it is. In the English menus, under “Brightness”, there are options for this.
Blue light protectionThe blue element can cause insomnia, but fortunately there is a way to eliminate it. For laptops, this can be achieved by turning on the “night mode”, and for monitors it can be activated under a separate menu item (if any). If the device does not speak English, you should look for the menu item “Blue shield” or “Blue light protection”.
Interview: Many people think that a higher contrast value results in the best image quality, but this is wrong. It is usually worth specifying between 80-90, in this case subtle transitions remain visible.
saturation: The same can be said for variance, that is, it is not worth pulling to the extreme. In this case, the tones can become oversaturated, unnatural, and even confusing.
Image refresh rate: This index in Hertz (Hz) indicates the number of frames that may appear on the screen per second. It is worth setting it to the highest possible value, in this case the movement will be as continuous as possible.
color temperature: Defined in Kelvin and shows the percentage of each component in the image. If red prevails, then we are talking about a warm color temperature, but if blue, then we are talking about cold. The value of 6500 K is the golden mean, in the case of lower values we are talking about “warm”, and in the case of larger data we are talking about a “cold” color world. For screens, it is often not necessary to enter a value, but to select sympathetically the possible options (cold 2, cold, warm, warm 2, etc.). By the way, warm color temperatures are recommended for movies and multimedia content, and cool ones for gaming and sports broadcasting. But of course it is not necessary to insist on this. In English menu systems, color temperature settings are usually located under the name “Color”.
white balance: Here you can change the proportion of each color component directly. It can be found under the “White Balance” menu item, anyone who does not understand colors and does not have the necessary measuring instrument (colorimeter or calibrator) is not recommended to deceive.
Screen options only
And now comes options that can only be set on screens in the vast majority of cases.
response time: can be important to players; The smaller this value, the faster the changes will appear in front of the viewer. However, this can result in a slight blur, which can be a bit confusing. For English-language GUIs, see “Response time”.
Black Stabilizer: When this function is active, it automatically detects the darkest part of the screen and increases its brightness to improve visibility. This can also only make sense in games because it makes sense in the visual world.
Noise reduction: This option works under Digital Noise Reduction or just a simple DNR name. Its task is to eliminate image errors in the case of poor-quality sources (low bitrate for online streaming or TV broadcasts). It can be clearly useful, but if there is no such phenomenon, it should be turned off.
crosshairs: You can place the cross in the center of the screen even if it is missing from a game.
Factory Image Profiles: This is one of the great advantages of screens, as settings are pre-optimized for different types of content (such as movies, games, sports, etc.) and can be switched between them at the touch of a button. This feature is missing from the vast majority of laptops or can only be set up using separate software.
