A computer terminal is generally an electromechanical or electronic hardware object which is used for inputting information into and subsequently interpreting data from, a digital computer or an electronic personal computer. Early in history, the typewriter was an important example of such a terminal, which predated the widespread use of computer screens by several decades. The earliest terminals were used exclusively to input text and therefore had little if any other functionality. Modern terminals are usually much more compact and have a wide variety of input and output capabilities. call us today
A Brief History of Air Terminals
A variety of modern computer terminals can be seen at airports today. In an international airport, there are typically three terminals: one to allow passengers to check in, one to handle cash and other goods, and a fourth to handle international airport operations. At many smaller airports, there may only be one public terminal, which is used for general traffic. Terminals are also common at bus and train terminals, as well as at freight and courier depots.
Today, there are a vast number of different types of terminals. Some of the most common include touch-tone terminals, LED (light emitting diode) terminals, and LED-LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) terminals. There are also a variety of battery operated terminals and plug-in terminals. As with any piece of technology, terminals have also been developed for industries other than computer travel, including medical and hospitality, shipping services, telecom, and wireless carriers.
