1. What Is Output?

1.1. Output is data that has been processed into a useful form

1.2. An output device is any type of hardware component that conveys information to one or more people

2. Display Devices

2.1. • A display device visually conveys text, graphics, and video information

2.2. • A monitor is packaged as a separate peripheral – LCD monitor – Widescreen

2.3. • Liquid crystal display (LCD) uses a liquid compound to present information on a display device

2.4. • Resolution is the number of horizontal and vertical pixels in a display device – A higher resolution uses a greater number of pixels

2.5. • The graphics processing unit (GPU) controls the manipulation and display of graphics on a display device

3. Printers

3.1. • A printer produces text and graphics on a physical medium – Printed information is called a hard copy, or printout – Landscape or portrait orientation

3.2. • A nonimpact printer forms characters and graphics on a piece of paper without actually striking the paper

3.3. • An ink‐jet printer forms characters and graphics by spraying tiny drops of liquid ink onto a piece of paper – Color or black‐and‐white – Printers with a higher dpi (dots per inch) produce a higher quality output

3.4. • A multifunction peripheral (MFP) is a single device that prints, scans, copies, and in some cases, faxes

3.5. • A thermal printer generates images by pushing electrically heated pins against the heat‐sensitive paper

3.6. • A mobile printer is a small, lightweight, battery‐powered printer that allows a mobile user to print from a mobile device

4. Speakers, Headphones, and Earbuds

4.1. • An audio output device produces music, speech, or other sounds

4.2. • Headphones are speakers that cover your head or are placed outside of the ear

4.3. • Earbuds (also called earphones) rest inside the ear canal

4.4. • Some speakers are specifically designed to play audio from a portable media player

5. Other Output Devices

5.1. • Other output devices are available for specific uses and applications

5.2. • A data projector is a device that takes the text and images displaying on a computer screen and projects them on a larger screen

5.3. • An interactive whiteboard is a touch‐sensitive device, resembling a dry‐erase board, that displays the image on a connected computer screen

5.4. • Force‐feedback sends resistance to the device in response to actions of the user

5.5. • Tactile output provides the user with a physical response from the device

6. Output Devices for Physically Challenged Users

6.1. • Many accessibility options exist for users with various disabilities
