Encanterra is one of a few properties in the US that has these activities. The Good Life Festival is done in the spring and features big name bands that put on a concert. The music starts in the afternoon with a couple of local bands, followed by the opener band. Then around dusk the featured band takes the stage. In this case it was some local bands followed by Steve Ansel, then the Beach Boys.

The next set of options is for toggling between the display's connected devices. Honestly though this menu option is probably not one you will use. Toggling between connected devices can be done quickly by pressing the number 2 touch sensitive button when there is no on screen display (OSD).
The VP2770-LED comes equipped with speakers and you can adjust the volume levels from here. To get here quickly you can press the touch sensitive down arrow when there is no OSD showing and it will bring you right to these settings.
ViewSonic has pre-calibrated this IPS display. The color accuracy will probably be good enough for most; however, if you plan to use this monitor for a job that requires precise accuracy of color then you will want to use the color adjustment screens while you calibrate your monitor for the most accurate colors.
The information screen will give you some of the basic information about the display. Not much to see here that wasn't listed in the specifications section.
The manual image adjust settings is where you will find options to customize the sharpness, contrast, response time, aspect ratio, overscan, eco mode and gamma settings. The response time options are: standard, advanced and ultra fast. We set ours to ultra fast.
Pressing the up arrow when no OSD is showing will give you a quick way to toggle between different settings you've saved and the factory settings.
