    Monitors 1 min read

    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.
