When referring to a computer monitor or another display, noninterlacing is also known as a progressive scan and is a method of how an image on a computer monitor is refreshed. With noninterlaced, every line on the monitor is refreshed during a scan. This provides for a higher quality display and less chance of noticeable flickering or line movements on the monitor.

When deciding between an interlaced and a non-interlaced monitor, a non-interlaced monitor is commonly recommended.
