With a computer monitor or other analog display, noninterlaced is a method of drawing all lines and screen elements simultaneously rather than alternating between odd and even. Also known as a progressive scan, noninterlacing displays reproduce higher-quality images and reduce the appearance of flickering or line movements.

The only drawback to noninterlaced technology with older displays is that it could lower frame rates, as there were technically twice as many lines rendered per refresh cycle. However, this is no longer a consideration because all modern flat-panel displays are progressive scan by design.
