Example: "A digital projector is often used as a VDU for PowerPoint presentations."

A VDU is a Visual Display Unit. It is another term for monitor or screen, but may also refer to a projector or other type of display. VDUs may be peripheral devices or may be integrated into a computer system. While early VDUs were mainly CRT displays, today most monitors are flat panel displays that use LCD or LED technology.
