A type of video monitor
capable of accepting signals at more than one frequency range. This enables the monitor to support
several different resolutions. Multifrequency monitors differ somewhat from multiscanning monitors
. Multiscanning monitors can support video signals at any frequency level within its range, whereas multifrequency monitors support only a select number of frequency levels. However, because almost all video signals conform to one of a handful of video standards, the greater potential of multiscanning monitors is generally not utilized.
