A PICTURE CAPTURES A THOUSAND AND ONE THINGS

The applications and roles of display monitors are reviewed, the basic functional types are identified, the selection of a monitor is discussed, and comments are made on the questions that must be considered in the use of such monitors. The scanning Auger microprobe (for analyzing the chemistry and electrical conductivity of small surfaces) and the gamma camera (acts like an x-ray) are described as examples of widely differing applications for display monitors. A special application is the kineisograph which monitors the position and movement of a dental patients jaw, displaying the data on a CRT graph form. It is also used in the video tape recorder. The two basic functional types of monitors are: nonstorage; and storage-bistable and variable persistence storage monitors. Basic questions are listed that must be answered in selecting a display monitor.
