19. Can you please explain the difference between window port & view port?

A portion of a picture that is to be displayed by a window is known as window port. The display area of the part selected or the form in which the selected part is viewed is known as view port.

20. What is Raster scan systems?

Several processing units:
☛ Contains a special purpose processor, called video controller or display controller
☛ Video controller: A fixed area of the system memory is reserved for the frame buffer, and the video controller is given access to the framebuffer memory.
Tow registers are used to store the coordinates of the screen pixels.
The value is stored in the frame buffer for this pixel position is then retrieved and used to set the intensity of the CRT beam Initially the x register is set to 0 and the y register is set to ymax.
Then the x register is incremented by 1, and the process repeated for the next pixel on the top scan line.

21. What is resource Manager in flex actionscript?

Resource Manager now handles access to all localized resources in an application. Any components that extend UIComponent, Formatter, or Validator now have a new resourceManager property, which lets you easily access the singleton instance of this manager. If you?re writing some other kind of class that needs to use the Resource Manager, you can call Resource Manager. get Instance() to get a reference to it.

22. Explain some basic features of computer graphics?

The salient feature of computer graphics is the creation and manipulation of graphics (artificial images) by computer.
Computer graphics provides a tool called as motion dynamics which allows user to move object.

23. What is scan code in Visualization?

When a key is pressed on the keyboard, the keyboard controller places a code carry to the key pressed into a part of the memory called as the keyboard buffer. This code is called as the scan code.

24. What is emissive in visualization?

The emissive display converts electrical energy into light energy. The plasma panels, thin film electro-luminescent displays are the examples.

25. What is Non-emissive in Visualization?

They are optical effects to convert the sunlight or light from any other source to graphic form. Liquid crystal display is an example.
