Monitor Progress

Monitor is the most important interface that connects human and PC. By the time the first computer was operating in 1938, the 83-year-old monitor and its development are still ongoing to date.

The development of computer monitors used today is actually divided into two phases. The first phase in 1855 was marked by the discovery of cathode ray tubes by German scientist Heinrich Geibler. He is the father of the tube monitor. Then, 33 years later, Austrian chemist Friedrich Reinitzer laid the foundation for the development of LCD technology by discovering liquid crystals. Tube technology from the beginning was developed to realize the monitor. However, liquid crystals are still a chemical phenomenon for the next 80 years. At that time, the appearance or frame rate was not yet unthinkable. That was the second phase of the development of computer monitors.For your monitor place you can visit Triple Monitor Arm.

Brown Tube Technology (CRT Display) was invented in 1897, but this technology was only adopted as a television broadcast receiver in 1926. The history of the invention of CRT technology has been more than 100 years and has a very good image quality. However, this technology has one drawback that the bigger the display will be made, the larger the tube is used.

On a CRT monitor, the display screen is used as a cathode ray tube. This technology raises the display on the monitor by emitting an electron beam to a point on the screen. The rays will be reinforced to show the bright side and be weakened for the dark side. CRT technology is the cheapest technology compared to the other two technologies. However, the resulting resolution is good enough for various purposes. It’s just that the electrical energy required is quite large and has a fairly strong electromagnetic radiation. RT (Cathode Ray Tube), Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and Plasma gas.

LCD monitors no longer use electron tubes but use fluorescent liquid crystals that can fluoresce. This technology produces monitors known as Flat Panel Display with flat-shaped screens, and higher resolution capabilities compared to CRTs. Because of its flat shape, the flat type monitor uses a small amount of energy and is widely used on portable computers.

Another advantage of the LCD monitor is the brightness ratio that has touched the number 350: 1. Brigtness ratio is the comparison between the darkest display with the brightest display. Liquid Crystal Display uses liquid crystals that can fluoresce. Liquid crystal is a viscous organic molecule that flows like a liquid, but has a spatial structure like a crystal. (Discovered by BotaniAustria-Rjeinitzer experts) in 1888. By shining the light through a liquid crystal, the intensity of the outgoing rays can be electrically controlled so as to form flat panels.
