480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i /

1080p____ Each of the scanning

rates above refers to the number of effective scanning lines that decides the screen resolution. The scanning rate may be indicated in i (interlaced) or p (progressive), depending on the scanning method.

- Scanning

Scanning refers to a process of sending pixels that form an image progressively. A larger number of pixels will deliver a clearer and more vivid picture.

- Progressive

In progressive scan mode, all lines of pixels are scanned one by one (progressively) on the screen.

- Interlaced

In interlaced scan mode, every other line of pixels is scanned from top to bottom first and then the remaining lines of pixels (that were not scanned) are scanned.

Non-interlace Mode and Interlace Mode____ Non-interlace mode

(progressive scan) displays a horizontal line from the top to the bottom of a screen progressively. Interlace mode displays the odd number lines first and the even number lines next. Non- interlace mode is mainly used in monitors as it produces screen clarity and interlace mode is mainly used in TVs.

Dot Pitch____ The screen consist of

red, green and blue dots. A shorter distance between the dots produces a higher resolution. Dot pitch refers to the distance between the shortest distance between dots of the same colour. Dot pitch is measured in millimeters.

Vertical Frequency____ The product

displays a single image many times per second (like a fluorescent light that flickers) to display an image for a viewer to see. The rate of a single image being displayed repeatedly per second is called vertical frequency or refresh rate. Vertical frequency is measured in Hz. E.g. 60Hz refers to a single image being displayed 60 times in one second.

Horizontal Frequency____ The time

required to scan a single line from the left to the right side of the screen is called a horizontal cycle. The reciprocal number of a horizontal cycle is called horizontal frequency. Horizontal frequency is measured in kHz.

Source____ Input source refers to a

video source device connected to the product such as a camcorder or video or DVD player.

Component ports (green, blue and red)____ The component ports, which

identify, transmit and receive contrast signals, provide superior picture quality to any other video connection methods.

Plug & Play____ Plug & Play is a

function that allows the automatic exchange of information between a monitor and PC to produce an optimum display environment. The product uses VESA DDC (international standard) to execute Plug & Play.

Resolution____ Resolution is the

number of horizontal dots (pixels) and vertical dots (pixels) that form a screen. It represents the level of display detail. A higher resolution enables more data to be displayed on the screen and is useful to perform multiple tasks simultaneously.

E.g. A resolution of 1920 X 1080 consists of 1,920 horizontal pixels (horizontal resolution) and 1,080 vertical pixels (vertical resolution).

DVD (Digital Versatile Disc)____ DVD

refers to a CD-sized mass storage disk where you can save multimedia (audio, video or game) applications using MPEG-2 video compression technology.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)____ It is an interface that

can be connected to a digital audio source as well as a high-definition video source by using a single cable without compression.

Multiple Display Control (MDC)____

MDC (Multiple Display Control) is an application that allows multiple display devices to be controlled simultaneously using a PC. Communication between a PC and monitor takes place using RS232C (serial data transmission) and RJ45 (LAN) cables.
