    1. A ____ is an input device that collects specific data directly from the environment and transmits it to a computer • sensor

    2. What is the definition of a softcopy? • data in electronic form. • An output device must be used in order to view a softcopy.

    3. Printed output is referred to as a (an): • Hardcopy

    4. Pixel is short for? • Picture element

    5. A ____ converts a person’s speech into digital signals. • Speech-recognition system

    6. The image you see on the screen (monitor) is made up of tiny dots of light called? • pixels

    7. The science of measuring individual body characteristics. Biometrics

    8. The amount of space between the centers of adjacent pixels is referred to as the • Dot pitch (dp)

    9. What factors affect screen clarity? Dot pitch Resolution Color depth Refresh rate

    10. What is the definition of resolution? • The number of pixels (dots) per square inch.

    11. The smaller the ___ the better the screen image. • Dot pitch

    12. What type of monitor takes up less room on a desk? • CRT or • Flat-panel display? • Flat-panel display

    13. The higher the ____ the better the screen image. • Color depth • Resolution • Refresh rate

    14. The number of times per second that the pixels are recharged so that their glow remains bright. • Refresh rate

    15. The amount of information, expressed in bits, that makes up the color of a pixel is called? • Color depth

    16. Monitors fit in one of two possible categories. What are these categories? • CRT • Flat-panel display

    17. CRT stands for? • Cathode Ray Tube

    18. What type of flat-panel display screen is not as clear? • Passive-matrix

    19. A flat-panel display uses what type of technology • Liquid Crystal Display

    20. The three types of flat-panel display screens are? • Active-matrix • Passive-matrix • Gas plasma

    21. With what type of flat-panel display screen is each pixel on the screen controlled by its own transistor. • Active-matrix display

    22. How is the active-matrix display screen and the passive-matrix display screen different? • With the active-matrix each pixel on the screen controlled by its own transistor and with the passive-matrix each row or column of pixels on the screen is controlled by one transistor. • The active-matrix screen is more expensive. • The active-matrix screen has a better image.

    23. What type of flat-panel display screen is least expensive? • Passive-matrix

    24. Image clarity of a printer is measured in what? • dpi

    25. dpi stands for ? • dots per inch

    26. A sensor is • an input device that collects specific data directly from the environment and transmits it to a computer.

    27. A printer fits in one of two categories. What are those two categories? • Impact printer • Non-impact printer

    28. The term non-impact in reference to printers means what? • It forms characters and images without direct physical contact between the printing mechanism and the paper

    29. A printer that makes physical contact with the paper is called a (an) • Impact printer

    30. What are the types of impact printers? • Line printer • Dot-matrix

    31. What are the types of non-impact printers? • Laser • Ink-jet • thermal

    32. What type of printer forms an image on paper by spraying small droplets of ink? • Ink-jet

    33. What type of printer uses a drum treated with magnetically charged toner in order to transfer an image onto paper? • laser

    34. What type of printer uses colored waxes and heat to produce images by burning dots onto special paper. • Thermal printer

    35. What type of signal continuously varies? • Analog

    36. What type of signal takes on one of two states? • Digital

    37. What is the purpose of a modem? • To convert Digital Signals to Analog Signals & Back

    38. Modem is short for • modulate/demodulate.

    39. Sending modem does what? • converts digital signals into analog signals for transmission over phone lines (i.e. modulates).

    40. What type of modem demodulates (i.e. converts analog signals back into digital signals. • Receiving modem

    41. The use of television video and sound technology to make it possible for people in different locations to see, hear, and talk with one another is called? • Videoconferencing

    42. What is Groupware ? • Software that makes it possible for teams of co-workers to use networks of microcomputers to share information and to cooperate on projects.
