Ultrascope monitor burn?

I have noticed that LCD monitors burn in an image if it is static for several hours. Do you think it is better to let the computer's screen saver handle this? Or do some people just live with the burn in the display so they don't have to keep waking the computer up?

you are on an LCD monitor. You will use your cheap $240 LCD monitor for nothing but this scope display for the next 5 years. Why are you concerned about "burn". Does it really "burn" on the LCD display?

Yes, I have permanent burns on my 23" and 30" Apple Cinema Displays from the Final Cut Pro interface.

then yes, you will get burns from the Ultrascope. You will use the Ultrascope every second in every edit session - just like we use conventional waveform monitors and vectorscopes (just like you use your FCP system). So yes, you will get the same result. You can "sleep" your system for your Ultrascope as much as you "sleep" your system for your FCP MAC.

Hi.

I hear it first time that LCD will burn in. Is this about the panel apple uses ?

LCD monitors don't burn-in like a CRT where constant projection of the same image can damage the phosphors, they can develop a condition called "image persistence" where the pixel xtals develop memory, any persistant image usually can be removed by simply putting a pure white image on the display for a while to reset the xtals or use screen saver so an image isn't constantly protrayed will prevent "image persistence".
