Frequently Asked Questions

General

What’s the difference between Clarity, Clarity Pro and Clarity Pro Touch?
Pro and Pro Touch are upgraded versions of our Clarity Monitor, which introduce some great extra features while retaining the studio-quality display which makes the original Clarity such a valued tool for digital artists.

The key difference between Clarity and Clarity Pro is that Pro has an 8MP webcam built into the monitor.

This smart webcam automatically slides up from the top when you start a video call, then slides back down when the call ends, keeping the lens clean and protecting your privacy.
Clarity Pro Touch has both the inbuilt webcam and a ‘one-glass solution’ 10-point touchscreen.

The formula is: Clarity (4K studio-quality monitor) + Pro (smart inbuilt webcam) + Touch (touchscreen).

There’s one other difference between Clarity and Pro/Pro Touch – they can’t charge your computer quite as fast, with only 65W passthrough charging compared to Clarity’s 90W. This is because 25W need to be reserved for the webcam.
How do I recharge my laptop with Clarity?
To charge your laptop via Clarity (up to 65W), simply connect it to the monitor via a USB-C cable which supports the required wattage.

However, it does need to plug into a USB-C port compatible with PD (Power Delivery) on your computer.

These can sometimes be identified by the presence of a battery icon next to the port on your laptop, but often you’ll need to check the user manual or manufacturer’s website to figure out which USB-C ports support PD.

All Thunderbolt 3 and 4 ports support PD.
How do I use Clarity's USB-A ports?
In order for your computer to access devices you've plugged into Clarity's two rear USB-A ports, you need to ensure your computer is:

1. Connected to Clarity via either:Clarity's USB-C port or Clarity's USB-B port
2. Clarity "Active USB" mode is set to the same USB port you've connected to your computer.

To change Clarity's "Active USB" mode, navigate to "USB Switch" in the "Other Settings" menu of Clarity's main menu.
For example: if your computer is connected to Clarity via USB-C, you would select "Type-C" in the "USB Switch" menu.
Does Clarity support VESA mounting?
Yes, Clarity is compatible with 100x100mm VESA mounts, and includes four mounting screws.
How do I assemble my new monitor?
The following assembly instructions can also be found in your product manual.

Remove the stand stem and base from their protective bags. Slot the stem onto the base and fasten via the thumb screw underneath the base.Align the two latches at the top of the stand stem with the notches in your Clarity display, with the display still in the foam housing. Gently push the rear plate into Clarity, it will click into place.Lift your monitor out of the foam, ensuring the display's weight remains supported.

Touchscreen

Which kinds of stylus can I use with Clarity Pro Touch?
Clarity Pro Touch is a capacitive touch screen and can be used with all capacitive styluses, which are widely available from electronics retailers.
On Windows, and Mac with our Touch Screen Drivers installed, Clarity also supports most active styluses using the Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP) 2.0 or later. This includes the ALOGIC Active Surface Stylus (ALASS).
However, Clarity Pro Touch may not take advantage of all the functions of a stylus, such as pressure sensitivity and shortcut buttons.
(macOS) My touch input is controlling the wrong screen!
When using a touchscreen monitor on an Apple computer, without installing Clarity Pro Touch's macOS drivers, your input is applied to the monitor your cursor was on when you started touching.
To ensure your touch input is registered on the correct screen, you can:
(Recommended) Install the Clarity Pro Touch's macOS drivers and use the "Identify" tool of UPDD Daemon to designate the correct screen for touch input. Use Clarity Pro Touch as your only monitor (including your inbuilt laptop screen). Move your cursor onto Clarity Pro Touch’s screen before using touch input.
(Windows 10/11) My touch input is controlling the wrong screen!
Sometimes, Clarity Pro Touch’s input will be applied by your computer to another display instead of Pro Touch.
Moving your mouse onto Clarity before using the touchscreen usually resolves this issue.Solution - Windows
If you’re using Windows 10 or 11 with multiple displays you can specify which monitor you want touch input to apply to, which saves you having to mouse over to that display before using touch.
To do this, launch Control Panel, click “Hardware and Sound” then ‘Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input’ from the menu.

Select “Setup”, choosing “Pen Input” if you’re using an active stylus or “Touch Input” if you’re using your fingers or a capacitive stylus, then follow the onscreen instructions.

If completing this process doesn’t resolve your issue, try setting up for the other kind of input.
Can I adjust Clarity’s settings with the touchscreen?



Yes.
To open Clarity’s On-Screen Display (OSD) menu using touch controls, swipe left with two fingers in screen’s bottom right corner. With the menu open, just use your fingers to adjust Clarity’s settings.

Troubleshooting

I've connected to Clarity via USB-C. Why aren't I getting any video?
In order to connect to Clarity via USB-C, it must be plugged into a USB-C port compatible with "DP Alt Mode" - or a Thunderbolt 3/4 port.DP Alt Mode compatible USB-C ports are sometimes marked with a "DP" symbol, but they are often identical to regular USB-C ports. If none of your USB-C ports have symbols next to them, you'll need to consult the product manual or the manufacturer's website to find out which ports are DP Alt Mode compatible.If your computer does not support USB-C DP Alt Mode or Thunderbolt 3/4, we recommend connecting via HDMI or DisplayPort. If your laptop does not support these, you can connect using an ALOGIC Universal Dock, which leverage DisplayLink technology to deliver video over non-DP Alt Mode USB-C connections.
When I wake my computer from sleep mode, Clarity doesn’t come back on.
In some cases, it’s possible for Clarity not to recognize the wake-up signal from a connected computer. This issue occurs most often when Clarity is connected to a computer through a dock.

To resolve the issue, restart Clarity by pressing the power button twice – it should recognize the connected device as part of its boot-up sequence.

If this issue persists, we recommend trying the following steps to isolate the issue:

Connect Clarity directly to your computer
Try connecting with a different cable or port.
ie. Use DisplayPort instead of USB-C
Update your computer’s operating system.

If your problem reoccurs and these these steps do not help resolve it, please contact ALOGIC support ( support.eu@alogic.co).
Why can't I select HDR?
If you cannot select HDR (it's not appearing in the "Picture Settings" menu), this is likely due to one of two reasons:
1. You're connecting to Clarity with USB-C. HDR is only available when connected via HDMI or DisplayPort.
2. You're using the monitor in SRGB, Uniformity or Adobe RGB mode. Both of these video presets are designed to provide perfect colour reproduction over a limited colour gamut. HDR produces colours outside these limited gamuts and thus can't be used at the same time. You can re-enable HDR by switching back to "Standard" mode in the Professional Settings menu.
Clarity isn't switching between landscape and portrait when I rotate the screen!
If Clarity is not automatically switching between portrait and landscape mode when you physically rotate the screen, it is likely because the screen's "Gravity Sensor" has been disabled.Reenable this in "Other Settings" menu to use this feature.
Why isn't my laptop charging?
Not all laptop USB-C ports support charging using USB-C Power Delivery. Many laptops only support charging on one of their USB-C ports.
Ensure you connect the charging cable to a port on the laptop which supports charging.
Why aren't Clarity's speakers working?
In order to use Clarity's speakers, you must select "27F34KCPD" as your active sound output device in your computer's settings.Additionally, Clarity's speakers will not function if you have an audio device connected to Clarity's rear 3.5mm audio port.

Webcam

What resolution is Clarity Pro’s webcam?
Clarity Pro’s webcam has an 8MP sensor, or 8 million pixels. This is roughly equivalent to a 4K image.
Does Clarity Pro’s webcam have a microphone?
Yes, Clarity Pro’s webcam includes an array of four microphones to capture sound.
What programs does Clarity Pro’s smart webcam support?
Clarity Pro’s smart webcam slides up and down whenever your computer’s operating system (macOS, Windows, Chrome) attempts to access a webcam feed, not specific integrations with each application.

As a result, the webcam will work with any program attempting to access a webcam.

This includes videoconfering programs such as:

Microsoft Teams
Skype
Google Meet
Slack
Cisco Webex
Zoom
GoTo Meeting

As well as livestreaming programs like:

Open Broadcaster Software (OBS)
Xplit
Streamlabs
How do I adjust the webcam’s framing?
To adjust the framing of your webcam, you first need to slide the webcam up.

Open a program which requires the webcam – on Windows 11 we recommend the “Camera” app or “Photo Booth” on macOS.

Open this application and switch the active camera to Clarity Pro’s – this can be done via the “Camera” menu in Photo Booth or hitting the “Switch Camera” button in Camera – see below.

Once you’ve activated Clarity Pro’s webcam, it will slide up out of the monitor. You can now adjust its vertical framing using the scroll wheel on the rear of the camera.
My computer can't see Clarity Pro's webcam!
For Clarity Pro's webcam to function, your computer needs to be connected to either the monitor's USB-C or USB-B port.

Then you need to ensure that's the active USB port is set to the same - either USB-C or USB-B. This can be set via the "USB-Switch" setting of the monitor's "USB Options" menu.

If these two are correct and your can't see your Clarity Pro's webcam listed in your system's available webcams (listed as either 27C4KPDW or 27C4KPDWT), restart the monitor and your computer.

If the webcam still doesn't appear, please contact ALOGIC support: support@alogic.co and we'll help you resolve your issue.

Simply Superb and Worth the Wait!

The Clarity Touch 27” Display is one of the best displays I have used. After much research and deliberation, I ordered a screen to go with my new Mac Studio. Unfortunately the admin side was the biggest letdown. Partly my own fault, but I did not realise the display was coming from overseas. As I had not entered my business name on the invoice, customs refused shipping into NZ without the invoice being reworked. Dealing with the freight company proved difficult. Thankfully a lovely and very helpful lady from the NZ branch took control to get what was needed to release the display.
The Clarity Touch worked straight out of the box so no need to even connect a keyboard to set up. There are plenty of ports to choose from at the rear of the display. Downloading the drivers was a little tricky and I had trouble with the pinch to zoom feature. Though, after I reread the information again it was straight forward.
If there was anything to improve it would be the webcam. When it pops up there is no way to rotate it down as it is stuck in a fixed position. If it had a gimbal this may work but it looks pretty cool tucked away. If Alogic upgraded the back panel to an aluminium one it would look pretty slick and site alongside the Apple Cinema Display in terms of quality. But this really is a great monitor and I am keen to acquire another at some stage.

Decent Monitors. Terrible customer service and communication.

My original order was delayed. No one let me know and I had to inquire after the monitors did not show up. The monitors were delivered without the laptop stand that I had requested. I was informed that a laptop stand would be sent on January 6th. The laptop stand was never shipped, and I am still waiting on a response from a email I sent on February 6th. Providing payment for the Two monitors was very time consuming and difficult, requiring multiple confirmations to process the order. It’s 2024 and it’s a shame that this is the sort of customer service you receive when spending over $2000.
