  3. Definition: Output device that conveys graphics, text and video information Soft Copy is information that is displayed on a display device Basic Parts: Screen Definition: Projection surface Monitor Definition: Plastic or metal case that houses the screen Display Devices: * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  4. Display Devices Continued… • Monochrome: • Definition: • Information is displayed on one color and on a different colored background • Gray Scaling: • Definition: • Information is displayed using many shades of gray from white all the way to black. • This provides better contrast * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  5. Types of Monitors: • CRT Monitors • LCD Monitors • Gas Plasma Monitors * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  6. Definition: A monitor that contains a cathode ray tube Cathode ray tube (thus, CRT) is a large, sealed, glass tube Every dot on the screen consists of phosphor material There is a red, a green and a blue phosphor Basic Terminology: Viewable Size: Diagonal measurement of the actual viewing area that is provided by the monitor Pixel: Short for picture element Single point in an electronic image CRT Monitors: * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  7. LCD Monitors: • Liquid Crystal Display (thus LCD) contains liquid crystals instead of a cathode ray tube. • Flat-Panel Display has a lightweight, compact screen • Consumes one-third the power of a CRT * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  8. LCD Displays: • Web-enabled device: • Provides access to the web and/or e-mail • Electronic book (e-book): • Compact computer that allows you to “mark” text • ClearType • Technology developed to make on-screen reading as natural feeling as possible * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  9. LCD Displays Continued… • Use: • Active-matrix display, a.k.a. thin-film transistor display (TFT), which can use a separate transistor for each color pixel. • Organic TFT, a.k.a. organic LED (OLED), uses organic molecules to produce a brighter display • This is the most powerful because many transistors are used • Passive-matrix display, a.k.a. dual-scan display, requires less power and uses fewer transistors • High-performance addressing (HPA) provides a less expensive alternative. * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  10. Gas Plasma Monitors: • Definition: • Flat-panel display that uses gas plasma technology • Offers larger screen sizes and higher display quality * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  11. Quality of CRT depends on: Resolution Dot pitch A.k.a. pixel pitch; the distance between each pixel on the display Refresh rate A.k.a. vertical frequency/scan rate; speed that the monitor redraws the images on the screen Measured in hertz (number of times per second that the screen is redrawn) Quality of LCD depends on: Resolution Sharpness and clearness of an image Super Video Graphics Array (SVGA) supports resolutions and colors Quality of Display Devices: * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  12. Monitor Ergonomics: • Goal: • To incorporate comfort, efficiency and safety • Electrostatic radiation (EMR) • Magnetic field that travels at the speed of light • Complies with MPR II standards • LCD monitors do not emit any kind of electromagnetic radiation—only CRT monitors do • ENERGY STAR program: • Program that encourages manufacturers to create energy-efficient devices * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  13. Printers: • Definition: • Output device that produces text and other graphics on a medium which is known as a hard copy or a printout • Orientations: • Portrait • Landscape * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  14. Printers Continued… • Types: • Impact Printers • Nonimpact Printers • Photo Printers • Label and Postage Printers • Portable Printers • Plotters and Large-Format Printers * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  15. Printers Continued… • Impact Printers: • Strikes a mechanism against an ink ribbon • Different qualities of print: • Letter Quality • Near Letter Quality • Dot-Matrix Printers • Tiny pins on a print head mechanism strike an inked ribbon • Use continuous-form paper in which each sheet of paper is connected • Line Printers • High-speed impact printer that prints an entire line at a time • Shuttle-matrix printer moves a series of print hammers back and forth horizontally at high speeds * Information was gathered from Discovering Computers 2003 by Shelly Cashman Vermaat

  16. Nonimpact Printers: Forms characters and graphics without actually striking the paper Types: Ink-Jet Printers: Forms characters by spraying tiny drops of ink Laser Printers: High-quality nonimpact printer that uses individual sheets of paper stored in a removable tray that slides into the printer case Page Description Language (PDL) tells the printer how to lay out the material * PCL (Printer Control Language) supports standard fonts and layouts * PostScript is designed for complex documents Thermal Printers: Generates images by pushing electronically heated pins against heat-sensitive paper Thermal wax-transfer printer, a.k.a. thermal transfer printer, uses heat to melt colored wax on heat-sensitive paper Dye-sublimation printer, a.k.a. thermal dye transfer printer, uses heat to transfer color dye to specially coated paper.
