LESSON 4. IDENTIFY THE TYPES AND PURPOSE OF OUTPUT DEVICES.

OUTPUT – is a data that has been processed into useful form.

OUTPUT DEVICE – is any hardware component that can convey information to user. It is a part of the computer that receives the processing from the computer. An output device comes in several forms, including sound, visual effects like the display and print jobs. Output devices are distinguished from input devices in that they display output for the user. Input devices are the parts of the computer that give the machine instructions.

Examples of Output Device.

  • 1. MONITOR – it is like a television or a cathode ray tube (CRT) that displays data from

the

computer. The newer type of display device which uses liquid crystal display

(LCD).

A CRT (cathode ray tube) monitor is one of the two basic types of computer monitors. It is a bowl-shaped screen made of a glass envelope containing an electron gun and a fluorescent screen that emits light when the gun releases electrons. The electron beam is then magnetically deflected, focused, and modulated in a way to form a

A flat panel screen that uses the liquid crystal display (LCD) technology and connects to a computer. Laptops have used LCD screens almost exclusively, and the LCD monitor is the standard display screen for desktop computers.

  • 2. PRINTER – it is a device that prints images or pictures created on the computer paper.

The printed

output from the printer is called hardcopy or printout.

KINDS OF PRINTER A. NON-IMPACT PRINTER – type of printer that forms graphics and characters without striking the

paper.

  • 1. Ink-jet Printer – a non-impact printer that forms graphics and characters without

striking

the paper. It sprays tiny drops of liquid ink onto paper.

B. IMPACT PRINTER – a printer that forms characters by striking mechanism against inked-ribbon that contacts paper.

1. Dot-matrix Printer – an impact printer that produces printed images when

tiny wire

 

pins strike the ribbon.

2. Line Printer – high-speed impact printer that prints entire line at a time.

Speed is

measured in lines per minute (lpm).

B. IMPACT PRINTER – a printer that forms characters by striking mechanism against inked-ribbon that contacts

3. AUDIO-OUTPUT DEVICE – computer component that produces music, speech, or other sounds.

EXAMPLE: Speaker - An electro-acoustic transducer that converts electrical signals into sounds loud enough to be heard at a distance.

4. OTHER OUTPUT DEVICES

1. Projector – displays the image on a wall-sized screen. It is best for giving lectures to a

big crowd so that everybody can see the presentation properly.

4. OTHER OUTPUT DEVICES 1. Projector – displays the image on a wall-sized screen. It is

2. Voice Synthesizer – is used to mimic human voice. It can interpret text and convert it into

tones which sound like human speech. This is sometimes

encountered in

telephone answering devices or phone service.

3. Braille Embrosser - is a printer, necessarily an impact printer, that renders text as braille.

Blind users call other printers ink printers.
