  1. 1. Output: The Many Uses of Computers and Communications Audio, Video, Virtual Reality and Robots Outputs Types of Printers and Plotters Video Display Adaptors Types of Display Screens
  2. 2. Output devices translate information processed by the computer into a form that humans can understand. Several Types of Output Devices -Display Screens -Video-output devices -Printers and Plotters -Virtual-reality devices -Audio-output devices -Robots
  3. 3. Principal Kinds of Outputs Hardcopy – refers to printed outputs Softcopy – refers to data that is shown on a display screen or is in audio or voice form .It is not tangible.
  4. 4. Examples of Hardcopy - text or graphics printouts - film( microfilm, microfiche) Examples of Softcopy -Virtual reality -Robot
  5. 5. Display Screens: Softcopy Output <ul><li>It is also called monitors </li></ul><ul><li>Output devices that show programming instructions and data as they are being input and information after it is processed. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Types of Display Screens <ul><li>Cathode – Ray Tubes ( CRTs) </li></ul><ul><li>Flat Panels Display </li></ul>
  7. 7. Cathode – Ray Tubes ( CRTs) <ul><li>The most common form of display screen. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a vacuum tube used as a display screen in a computer or video display terminal. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Flat Panel Displays <ul><li>Much thinner, weigh less and consume less power than CRTs. </li></ul><ul><li>It is better for portable computers. </li></ul><ul><li>Made up of two plates of glass with a substance between them which is activated in different ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Example. LCD </li></ul>
  9. 9. Liquid – Crystal Display <ul><li>Consists of a substance called liquid crystal, the molecules of which line up in a way that alters their optical properties. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Flat panel screens are either active – matrix or passive matrix displays. Active –matrix Display – each pixels on the screen is controlled by its own transistor. It is much brighter than passive –matrix but they are more complicated and expensive. Passive- matrix Display - a transistor controls a whole row or column of pixels .It is less expensive and use less power than active – matrix.
  11. 11. Pixels <ul><li>Individual dots or picture elements that represented the images. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the smallest unit on the screen that can be turned on and off by the computer or made different shades. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Example of AMLCD </li></ul><ul><li>Example of PMLCD </li></ul>
  13. 13. Screen Clarity <ul><li>Whether CRTs or flat-panel display, screen clarity depends on three qualities: </li></ul><ul><li>- Resolution </li></ul><ul><li>- Dot Pitch </li></ul><ul><li>- Refresh Rate </li></ul>
  14. 14. Resolution <ul><li>The clarity of sharpness of a display screen. </li></ul><ul><li>The more pixels there are per square inch, the better the resolution. </li></ul><ul><li>It is expressed in terms of the formula horizontal pixels x vertical pixels </li></ul>
  15. 16. Dot Pitch <ul><li>-The amount of space between the centers of adjacent pixels. </li></ul><ul><li>The closer the dots, the crisper the image. </li></ul><ul><li>for crisp images, dot </li></ul><ul><li>pitch should be less </li></ul><ul><li>than .31 millimeter. </li></ul>
  16. 17. Refresh Rate <ul><li>The number of times per second that the pixels are recharged so that their glows remains bright. </li></ul><ul><li>Produced more clarity </li></ul><ul><li>and richer colors. </li></ul><ul><li>Displays are refreshed </li></ul><ul><li>45 to 100 times per </li></ul><ul><li>second. </li></ul>
  17. 18. Monochrome versus Color Screens <ul><li>Monochrome Display screens </li></ul><ul><li>- It displays only two colors. </li></ul><ul><li>-Usually black and white, amber and </li></ul><ul><li>black, or green and black </li></ul>
  18. 19. Color Screens <ul><li>It can display between 16 and 16.7 million colors ( depending on their type ) </li></ul>
  19. 20. Text versus Graphics: Character Mapped versus Bitmapped Display <ul><li>Character mapped display screens </li></ul><ul><li>display only text – (letters, </li></ul><ul><li>numbers and special characters). </li></ul><ul><li>They cannot display graphics </li></ul><ul><li>unless a video display adapter </li></ul><ul><li>card is installed. </li></ul>
  20. 21. Bitmapped <ul><li>- It permits the computer to manipulate pixels on the screen individually rather than as blocks. </li></ul><ul><li>It enables the software to </li></ul><ul><li>create a greater variety of </li></ul><ul><li>images. </li></ul>
  21. 22. Video Display Adapters <ul><li>A display screen must have a video display adapter to display graphics. </li></ul><ul><li>It is also called a graphics adapter card. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a circuit board that determines the resolution, number of colors, and how fast images appear on the display screens. </li></ul><ul><li>It is often built into the motherboard and also be an expansion card that plugs into an expansion slot. </li></ul>
  22. 23. Video Display Adapter Standards <ul><li>VGA – Video Graphics Array </li></ul><ul><li> - Most common video </li></ul><ul><li>standard. </li></ul><ul><li> - It support 16 to 256 </li></ul><ul><li>colors. </li></ul>
  23. 24. SVGA – Super Video Graphics Array <ul><li>It will support 256 colors at higher resolution than VGA. </li></ul>
  24. 25. XGA – Extended Graphics Array <ul><li>It supports up to 16.7 million colors at a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. </li></ul><ul><li>- video display adapters </li></ul><ul><li>and monitors must be </li></ul><ul><li>compatible. </li></ul><ul><li>- computer software </li></ul><ul><li>and video display </li></ul><ul><li>adapter must be </li></ul><ul><li>compatible </li></ul>
