Abstract

Display work stations or monitors often times have the capability of displaying different screen formats such as 24 rows by 80 columns or 27 rows by 132 columns. Some are capable of displaying one of four different screen formats: 24 x 80, 32 x 80, 43 x 80, or 27 x 132. The ability to display these screen formats is based on both the digital logic that generates the sync and video signals into a series of dots and uses the horizontal and vertical signals to provide a stable display.
