The Technology Behind The Silicon Graphics 1600sw-ssdao

UnCategorized There are many things to love about Silicon Graphics, Inc’s 1600SW TFT LCD monitor. It’s more than just cool-looking, as if it were unloaded from a starship. The look it gives you is even cooler. What’s the great secret to the great look you get with the SGI 1600SW? Well, really, there’s more than one; but to me maybe the greatest of them is its color-coding technology–its pixellation, its 24-bit color. Here’s how this works: the colors that can be displayed on an LCD monitor hinge upon the number of grayscale levels the monitor in question is capable of displaying. This grayscale leveling is a measure of how well the issue of color display is handled electrically. With the 1600SW, every subpixel is addressed via eight data bits. This enables SGI’s 1600SW to have the familiar 256 color generation, or 28 grayscales. In a color monitor, every pixel consists of three subpixels–there is a subpixel addressing each primary color. These blue, green, and red dots get energized to different intensities–that is, different grayscales–and engender an array of colors that our eyes pick up as the .bination of these dots. Now, due to the fact that the shade of each one of these three subpixels is determined by eight data bits, the monitor displays in 24-bit color–that is, 8×3. What does this mean for us? It means that the 1600SW has a color palette consisting of 256 (R) x 256 (G) x 256 (B)= more than 16,700,000 colors. Yes, you read that right. This reveals just one of the core reasons that the SGI 1600SW is so beloved of scientists, engineers, graphic artists, CGI departments of major Hollywood studios, and the manufacturing and energy industries in general. Greater color depth very simply provides you with more colors that you can put on your "palette"; the more colors you have, the more precise and the more expressive you can get. There are LCD monitors which are limited to 18 bits of color; these cannot display 24 true color bits. To a casual or average .puter user, this might not mean that much. However, professionals like those I just mentioned need to have access to that full color range so they can best do their jobs. Every Silicon Graphics flatscreen monitor .es 24-bit color capable, and it’s truly amazing. So, Silicon Graphics, Inc’s 1600SW just outdoes other monitors with its color display capabilities, and that matters a great deal to a lot of people. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
