• The Bit depth describes the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for a color map.

    1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black & white.

  • The part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner is transferred onto the paper, the fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently.

    This is why paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

  • The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a standard that allows devices on a home network to share information with each other.

    It is typically used to store media files (photos, music, videos...) on a central server and allow devices like connected TVs or music palyers to access these media files directly through the network.

  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for setting up a wireless home network.

    If your wireless access point/router supports WPS, you can configure the wireless network connections easily without requiring a computer. For example, all you may have to do is press a button on the devices to register them on the network.
