NOTE
•• Vertical Frequency: In order to display an image, the screen must be refreshed dozens of times per second, like a fluorescent
lamp. The number of times the screen is refreshed per second is called vertical frequency, or refresh rate, and is represented by
Hz.
•• Horizontal Frequency: The time it takes to display one horizontal line is called the horizontal cycle. If 1 is divided by the
horizontal interval, the result is the number of horizontal lines displayed per second. This is called horizontal frequency and is
represented by kHz.
