Pixel Policy (ISO 9241-307, Class 1)
This Pixel Policy explains the different types of pixel defects and defines acceptable defect levels for each type. To obtain service within the warranty period, the number of pixel defects on your product’s panel must exceed our Pixel Policy levels.
We strive to deliver the highest quality products and therefore use some of the industry's most advanced manufacturing processes and practice stringent quality control. However, pixel or sub pixel defects on LCD Monitor panels are sometimes unavoidable. No manufacturer can guarantee that all panels will be free from pixel defects, but we guarantee that any LCD Monitor with an unacceptable number of defects will be repaired or replaced under warranty.
Types of Pixel and Sub Pixel
•Bright Full Pixel: all 3 Sub Pixel Red Green Blue are permanently lit, which creates a Bright Full Pixel
•Black Full Pixel: all 3 Sub Pixel Red Green Blue are permanently unlit, which creates a Black Full Pixel
•Sub Pixel: all other combinations of lit and dark Sub Pixels appear as other colors
Types of Pixel Defects
