The Digital 15 in. Color (FR-PCXBV-SC) is a color monitor from Digital Equipment Corporation. This monitor display device makes use of the cathode ray tube (CRT) technology to display images on the computer screen. The cathode ray tube is a vacuum tube that has an electron gun which is the electron source. It also has a fluorescent screen that have external or internal means for accelerating and deflecting the beam of electron utilized for creating images in the form of light released coming from the fluorescent screen. Images may represent oscilloscopes or electrical waveforms, radar targets, and pictures (monitor, computer, television) among others. CRT utilizes a glass envelope that is evacuated, deep, large, relatively fragile and heavy. Display technologies more advanced than CRT like OLED, DLP, LCDs and flat plasma displays have successfully replaced CRT monitor display devices for a host of applications because of their cost-effectiveness and other features CRT monitors don’t have.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Color tubes like the one inside the Digital 15 in. Color (FR-PCXBV-SC) monitor utilize 3 different phosphors capable of emitting red, green and blue light. These are packed together in a striped design or clusters named ‘triads’ (shadow mask CRT). The Digital 15 in. Color (FR-PCXBV-SC) monitor display device uses 3 electron guns with one gun for every primary color. These guns are arranged in a triangular or straight line configuration. A mask or grille then absorbs electrons that would have otherwise strike the incorrect phosphor. Shadow mask tubes utilize a metal plate that has small holes in order that the beam of the electron only lights up the accurate phosphors n the tube’s face. On the other hand, another kind of color CRT monitor display utilizes an aperture grille to attain exactly the same result. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Digital 15 in. Color (FR-PCXBV-SC) errors before installing any driver updates.
