DisplaySync Pro
DisplaySync Pro is a type of KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch. It allows multiple computers to be connected to the monitor through USB and share the attached USB devices, such as a keyboard and mouse, saving desktop space and increasing productivity.

Auto Image Rotation
Automatic rotation of the displayed image based on the orientation of the monitor head

3D LUT
Internal 14-bit programmable 3D lookup tables (LUTs) allow the display of 1.07 billion colors out of a palette of 4.3 trillion (with 10-bit DisplayPort input) for accurate color, smooth images and hardware calibration.
Ambix4™
Allows up to four inputs (DisplayPort, VGA and two DVI-D) to be connected to a single monitor and for each of the four signals to be displayed with the press of a button.
Digital Uniformity Compensation
Reduces screen uniformity errors and compensates for differences in color/grayscale and luminance using new signal processing circuitry.
XtraView+™
Delivers wide viewing angles of up to 178º horizontally and vertically (up to 89º up, down, left and right) with less color shift and without any glare, reflection or distortion.
Rapid Response™
Delivers virtually uninterrupted, undistorted viewing of high-speed, full-motion video.
AmbiBright™
Automatically adjusts the backlight depending on the brightness of ambient lighting conditions. It also tells the monitor to enter power saving mode whenever the ambient lighting falls below a predetermined value (like when lights are shut off at the end of the day), which can significantly reduce energy consumption.
CableComp™
Equalizes the video signal to eliminate color halos on long cable runs.
