Display Formats
  • specifies horizontal and vertical resolution in pixels, scan mode (progressive or interlaced); refresh rate and color depth are sometimes also included
    • Example: 1920x1080p60 24bpp
      • Horizontal Resolution = 1920 pixels
      • Vertical Resolution = 1080 pixels
      • Scan Mode = p for progressive scan
      • Refresh Rate = 60 Hertz (Hz)
      • Color Depth = 24 bits per pixel (bpp)
        • in practice, refresh rate is almost always 60Hz and color depth is almost always 24bpp, so they are usually omitted
