A 3D display is any display capable of conveying three-dimensional images to the user. 3D display"

The 8514 is an IBM graphics computer display standard supporting a display resolution of 1024×768 pixels with 256 colours at 43.5 Hz ( interlaced), or 640×480 at 60 Hz (non-interlaced). 8514 usually refers to the display controller hardware (such as the 8514/A display adapter.) However, IBM sold the companion CRT monitor (for use with the 8514/A) which carries the same designation, 8514. 8514 (display standard)"

Active matrix addressing is an addressing scheme used in video displays. Given a n × m matrix, the number of connectors needed to address the display is n + m. Active matrix addressing"

There are three different addressing schemes for display devices: direct, matrix, and raster. The purpose of each scheme is to set (or maintain) the state of a pixel to either black/white or, more commonly, a gray-scale level. Addressing scheme"

Advanced Power Management (APM) is an API developed by Intel and Microsoft which allows a BIOS to Advanced Power Management"

After Dark is the name given to a series of successful screensaver software products first released in 1989 by Berkeley Systems for the Macintosh (and later ported to Windows). After Dark"

An aperture grille is one of two major technologies used to manufacture cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions and computer displays; the other is shadow mask. Aperture grille"

Barco N.V. ( ) is a display hardware manufacturer specialising in CRT projectors, LCD projectors, DLP projectors, LED displays and flat panel displays. Barco is an acronym that originally stood for Belgian American Radio COmpany. Barco"

The cathode ray tube or CRT, invented by Karl Ferdinand Braun, is the display device that was traditionally used in most computer displays, video monitors, televisions and oscilloscopes. The CRT developed from Philo Farnsworth's work was used in all television sets until the late 20th century and the advent of plasma screens, LCDs, DLP, OLED displays, and other technologies. As a result of this technology, television continues to be referred to as " The Tube" well into the 21st century, even when referring to non-CRT sets. Cathode ray tube"

The CNBC Ticker is a computer simulation of ticker tapes shown on the lower part of the TV screen on the business television channel CNBC from Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, in the U.S. The CNBC Ticker shows security and index symbols just like old ticker tapes that received information by telegraph, but unlike those ticker tapes, it is digital. CNBC Ticker"

A (digital) color image is a digital image that includes color information for each pixel. Color image"

A computer display, monitor or screen is a computer peripheral device capable of showing characters and/or still or moving images generated by a computer and processed by a graphics card. Monitors generally conform to one or more display standards. Sometimes the name "display" suits better than the word "monitor", as the latter term can also ambiguously refer to a "machine-level debugger" or to a " thread synchronization mechanism". Some people also refer to computer displays as "heads", especially when talking about multiple displays connected to a single physical computer. Once an essential component of a computer terminal, computer displays have long since become standardized peripherals in their own right. Computer display"

Various computer display standards or display modes have been used in the history of the personal computer. They are often a combination of display resolution (specified as the width and height in pixels), colour depth (measured in bits), and refresh rate (expressed in hertz). Associated with the screen resolution and refresh rate is a display adapter. Earlier display adapters were simple frame-buffers, but later display standards also specified a more extensive set of display functions and software controlled interface. Computer display standard"

CSTN stands for "color super-twist nematic" a form of passive matrix LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) for electronic display screens. CSTN"

A dark-on-light color scheme is a color scheme that uses dark-colored text on a light background and is often discussed in terms of computer user interface design. It was originally introduced in WYSIWYG word processors, to simulate ink on paper. Dark-on-light color scheme"

A dead pixel is a defective pixel that remains unlit on an LCD screen, monitor, Camera Charge-coupled device or CMOS sensor. Dead pixel"

A display device is a device for visual or tactile presentation of images (including text) acquired, stored, or transmitted in various forms. While most common displays are designed to present information dynamically in a visual medium, tactile displays, usually intended for the blind or visually impaired, use mechanical parts to dynamically update a tactile image (usually of text) so that the image may be felt by the fingers. Display device"

The display resolution of a digital television or computer display is the number of pixels (or maximal image resolution) that can be displayed on the screen, usually given as a product of the number of columns (horizontal, "X"), which is always stated first and the number or rows (vertical, "Y") to make up the aspect ratio. Display resolution"

Digital Light Processing (DLP) is a technology used in projectors and projection televisions. DLP was originally developed by Texas Instruments, and they remain the sole manufacturer of such technology, though many licensees market products based on their chipsets. DLP"

Dual Scan is an LCD technology, in which a screen is divided into two sections which are simultaneously refreshed giving faster refresh rate than traditional passive matrix screens. It offers low power consumption, but inferior sharpness and brightness compared to TFT screens. Dual Scan"

DVBST was an acronym used by Tektronix to describe their line of "Direct-View Bistable Storage Tubes". These were cathode ray tubes ( CRTs) that stored information written to them using an analog technique inherent in the CRT and based upon the secondary emission of electrons from the phosphor screen itself. (See the discussion of "Analogue Storage" in the oscilloscope article.) The resulting image was visible in the continuously glowing patterns on the face of the CRT. DVBST"

Electronic paper, or e-paper, is a technology that allows the text on a piece of paper to be re-written. The "paper" is actually made of organic electronics that use conductive plastic which contains tiny balls that respond to an electric charge, changing the page in much the same way that pixels change on a computer monitor. Electronic paper"

An em is a unit of measurement in the field of typography. The unit is defined in the terms of a specific typeface, and thus varies in length. Em (typography)"

Extended display identification data (EDID) is a data structure provided by a computer display to describe its capabilities to a graphics card. It is what enables a modern personal computer to know what kind of monitor is connected. EDID is defined by a standard published by the Video Electronics Standards Association ( VESA). The EDID includes manufacturer name, product type, phosphor or filter type, timings supported by the display, display size, luminance data and (for digital displays only) pixel mapping data.
