The year of manufacture is represented by the last four numbers of the date code. Any numbers before that indicate the day of the year. For example, 1572014 means the monitor was manufactured on the 157th day of 2014.

Note: This date code, the monitor serial number and hardware version will not change when firmware is updated.
