Benefits of DyAc™/ DyAc⁺™

DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ (Dynamic Accuracy) is a technology designed to reduce motion blur during gameplay. In competitive tournaments, such as the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT), players can easily see fast movement while performing moves like Jett Dash. DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ also helps the background look less blurry, which applies when aiming and moving the cross-hair. The difference can vary from player to player, but most have found that it can create that 1% advantage.

Science Behind LCD Technology and Motion Blur

The way a LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) produces an image is simple.

A pixel becomes visible in LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) technology when a light beam passes through the liquid crystal. When we see an object continuously moving on screen, this means that light beams are passing through multiple liquid crystals. Motion blur occurs because the crystals are unable to close quickly enough resulting in the previous image still being visible momentarily. Many display companies utilize a high refresh rate to combat this issue. However, players won’t be able to experience the sharpness needed during competitive tournaments such as VCT.

Motion Blur

This is where DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ comes into play by simulating Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). CRT creates images with electron beam tracking, so a moving object doesn’t have an afterimage.

How does DyAc™/ DyAc⁺™ work?

As mentioned earlier, DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ is the exclusive technology that simulates CRT’s dynamic display effect on LCD technology. The illustration below shows an example of how the technology works but is not an exact representation.

DyAc off, DyAc on

The backlight is turned on and then switched off at a fixed point. This helps to avoid unwanted afterimages since there is no residual light from a previously fixed point. In other words, you do not see a lingering image (motion blur) because no light beam passes through more than one point at a time.

Previously, the LCD panel was a standard component. ZOWIE customized the panel and made exclusive modifications to the circuitry and firmware settings. DyAC™ /DyAc⁺™ provides sharper moving images, which can be beneficial in FPS games such as VALORANT.

What the PROs are saying about DyAc⁺™

“Without DyAc⁺™ technology, I’d be out of a job”

Yay, formerly Cloud 9

“DyAc⁺™ really helps with the precision of my game changing RAZE ULTS”

Q1: Will DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ increase input lag?

A1: The DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ won't add input lag, since it doesn't add any extra loading to the image processing to the monitor nor to the computer.



Q2: Why the brightness drops when I turn on DyAc™ on my XL2411K?

A2: This is due to the 144hz panel limitation. This phenomenon won't happen on our 240hz with DyAc models.



Q3: How much the brightness will drop when I turn on DyAc™ on my XL2411K?

A3: It is roughly 50% off, and the perception to the brightness drop may be different depending on each one's feeling and ambient conditions.



Q4: Is DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ compatible with GSYNC/FreeSYNC?

A4: DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ is not compatible with GSYNC/FreeSYNC, so when you turn on GSYNC/FreeSYNC (if your model has one of those variable refresh rate features), then the DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ will be off automatically; If you want to turn on DyAc™/DyAc⁺™, you need to turn off GSYNC/FreeSYNC through your graphic card control panel. The way DyAc/DyAc+ works is different from those variable refresh rate technologies, and DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ provides different benefits compared to the others:

• DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ provides a clearer dynamic vision based on a high and stable refresh rate and fps

• Variable refresh rate (GSYNC/FreenSync): reduces stuttering and tearing when there is a significant gap between fps and refresh rate, or it is under a low fps and refresh rate.



Q5: Does DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ work on console or does PC need special requirements to be compatible with DyAc™?

A5: DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ is an independent feature built into the monitor that can work on any PC or console but DyAc™/DyAc⁺™ will be only active when the input content is 100hz or above.
