Question 1. What is computer graphics?

Answer- The term computer graphics include almost every thing on computer that is not text or sound. It is an art of drawing pictures, lines. charts, etc. using computers with the help of programming. Or we can say that graphics is the representation and manipulation of image data by computer with the help from specialized software and hardware. Graphic designing is done using the various available softwares for computers which can produce the 3D images in the required shape and dimension. Computer graphics help us in getting the real display experiences. 

Question 2. Write the important applications of computer graphic?

Answer- Following are the applications of computer graphic

1. computer graphics is used in the field of computer aided design.

2. It is used to produce illustrations for reports or to generate slide for with projections.

3. Computer graphic methods are widely used in both fine are and commercial are applications.

4. The artist uses a combination of 3D modeling packages, texture mapping, drawing programs and CAD software.

5. In the field of entertainment CG methods are now commonly used in making motion pictures. music videos and television shows. 

6. Computer-generated models of physical, financial and economic systems are often used as educational aids.

Question-3 What are the raster and vector graphics?

Answer- The Raster and Vector graphics can be explained as-

RASTER- In computer graphics image, or BITMAP, is a dot matrix data structure representing a generally rectangular grid of pixels or points of color, viewable via a monitor, paper, or other display medium. Raster image are stored in image files with varying formats. 

VECTOR- Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon, which are all based on mathematical expressions, to represent image in computer graphics. “Vector”, in this context, implies more than a straight line. 

Question-4 Write the difference between vector and raster graphics?

Answer-Following are the differences between vector and raster graphics-

1. Raster or Bitmap images are resolution dependent because of this its not possible to increase or decrease their size without sacrificing on image quality. While vector based image are not dependent on resolution. The size of vector image image can be increased or decreased without affecting image quality. 

2. Raster or bitmap images are always rectangular in shape, Vector image, however, can have any shape. 

3. Unlike raster image, vector image can’t be use for realistic images. This is because vector images are made up of solid color areas and mathematical gradients, so they can’t be used to show continuous tones of a colors in a natural photograph. 

Question-5 What is scaling in computer graphics? 

Answer- In computer graphic, image scaling is the process of resizing a digital image. scaling is a non-trivial process that involves a trade off between efficiency, smoothness and sharpness. With bitmap graphics, as the size of an image is reduced or enlarged, the pixels which comprise the image become increasingly visible, making the image appear “soft” if pixels are averaged, or jagged if not. 

Question-6 What are the hardware devices used for computer graphics? 

Answer- The hardwares devices used for the computer graphics are- Input Devices

Keyboard, Mouse, Data tablet, Scanner, Light pen, Touch screen, Joystick

Output Devices

Raster Devices- CRT, LCD, LED, Plasma screens, Printers

Vector Devices- Plotters, Oscilloscopes

Question-7 What are the features of inkjet printers?

Answer- Features of inkjet printers are-

1. They can print 2 to 4 pages per minute.

2. resolution is about 360d.p.i. Therefor better print quality is achieved.

3. The operating cost is very low. The only part that requires replacement is ink cartridge.

4. Four colors cyan, yellow, magenta, black are available.

Question-8 What are the advantages of electrostatic plotters?

Answer- Following are the advantages of electrostatic plotters-

1. They are faster then pen plotters and very high quality printers.

2. Recent electrostatic plotters includes a scan conversion capability.

3. color electrostatic plotters are available. They make multiple passes over the paper to plot color picture.

Question-9 What is meant by scan code?

Answer- When a key is pressed on the keyboard, the keyboard controller places a code carry to the key pressed in to the part of the memory called as the keyboard buffer. This code is called as scan code. 

Question-10 Define Random and Raster scan displays? 

Answer- Random scan is a method in which display is made by electronic beam, which is directed only to the points or parts of the screen where picture is to be drawn. The Raster scan system is a scanning technique in which the electron sweep from top to bottom and from left to right. The intensity is turned on or off to light and un-light the pixel. 

Mention some of the image formats used in multimedia?

Some of the image formats used in multimedia are 

• GIF files

• JPG files

• Animated GIF files

• MPEG files

• Shockwave files and

• Nx View files.

6. Define MIDI?

MIDI format or the Musical Instrument Digital Interface is one that is commonly used for transferring music information between electronic music devices like synthesizers and sound cards in computers. 

7. What is warping?

The technique of distorting a single image to represent something else is known as warping.

8. What is AVI format?

• The Audio Video Interleave or AVI format was developed by Microsoft in 1992.

• It is supported by all Windows operating systems and by most of the popular web browsers.

• It is a very common format on the Internet. Files in the AVI format have the extension.avi.

9. Write a note on video files?

• Video files tend to be very heavy. Several elements such as frame rate, image size, and color depth determine the size of these files. 

• It can differ, to reduce the file size to acceptable levels.

• The color depth could be reduced to less than 256 colors results in shabby image.

• Similarly, reducing the frame count to less than 15 frames per second causes the video to look jerky. 

10. Write a note on GIF?

• GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) is limited to an 8-bit palette.

• GIF is best suited for storing simple graphic images with relatively few colors.

• However it is not well fitted for photographic works.JPG scores over GIF in this area.

• GIF is still used extensively on the Internet and Multimedia applications because of the great reservoir of GIF images available and support for animation. 

11. Mention the categories or JPEG formats?

There are two categories of image file compression are

• lossy and 

• lossless

12. What is compression?

• Compression is a technique by which a recurring set of information is identified and replaced by a single piece of information. 

13. What is elearning?

• The growing popularity of multimedia is used to train and educate people world over.

• They are called elearning packages. The most common version of such packages is Computer Based and Web Based Tutorials (CBT/WBT). It is self-paced learning process.
