Hardware Quiz #43: Multisync Monitors
A history question: Who was the first company to introduce to the market monitors that used multiple refresh rates and resolutions?
Answer: a. NEC
The introduction of NEC MultiSync technology started a trend towards multi-scanning monitors. This technology allows a monitor to understand any frequency sent to it within a certain bandwidth. The benefit of a multi-scanning monitor is that you can change resolutions and refresh rates without having to purchase and install a new graphics adapter or monitor each time. Because of the obvious advantage of this approach, nearly every monitor you buy today is a multi-scanning monitor.
Gee, no one participated in this one. boohoo.
