Short Questions for Computer Graphics
Define Computer graphics.
Computer graphics remains one of the most existing and rapidly growing computer fields. Computer graphics may be defined as a pictorial representation or graphical representation of objects in a computer.
What is meant by scan code?
When a key is pressed on the keyboard, the keyboard controller places a code carry to the key pressed into a part of the memory called as the keyboard buffer. This code is called as the scan code.
What is meant by refreshing of the screen?
Some method is needed for maintaining the picture on the screen. Refreshing of screen is done by keeping the phosphorus glowing to redraw the picture repeatedly (i.e.) By quickly directing the electronic beam back to the same points.
Define Random scan/Raster scan displays?
Random scan is a method in which the display is made by the electronic beam which is directed only to the points or part of the screen where the picture is to be drawn. The Raster scan system is a scanning technique in which the electrons sweep from top to bottom and from left to right. The intensity is turned on or off to light and unlight the pixel.
List out the merits and demerits of Penetration techniques?
The merits and demerits of the Penetration techniques are as follows
It is an inexpensive technique
It has only four colors
The quality of the picture is not good when it is compared to other techniques
It can display color scans in monitors
Poor limitation etc.
List out the merits and demerits of DVST?
The merits and demerits of direct view storage tubes [DVST] are as follows
It has a flat screen
Refreshing of screen is not required COMPUTER GRAPHICS
Selective or part erasing of screen is not possible
It has poor contrast
Performance is inferior to the refresh CRT.
What do you mean by emissive and non-emissive displays?
The emissive display converts electrical energy into light energy. The plasma panels, thin film electro-luminescent displays are the examples.
The Non emissive are optical effects to convert the sunlight or light from any other source to graphic form. Liquid crystal display is an example.
List out the merits and demerits of Plasma panel display?
Refreshing is not required
Produce a very steady image free of Flicker
Less bulky than a CRT.
Poor resolution of up to 60 d.p.i
It requires complex addressing and wiring
It is costlier than CRT.
What is persistence?
The time it takes the emitted light from the screen to decay one tenth of its
original intensity is called as persistence.
What is resolution?
The maximum number of points that can be displayed without an overlap on a CRT is called as resolution.
