Different timings are stored in the monitor at the factory. As soon as a video signal is present, a suitable timing is sought. At this stage, “Auto In Process” is displayed. These timings are compatible with the standard video signals provided by today’s graphics cards. If no image or only a blurry image is displayed on the monitor, the signal is outside the standardized ranges. Such signals often occur in older medical equipment. In many cases, the unknown timing is displayed correctly without any additional settings. This is possible because a large number of known timings are stored in the monitor.
