From Higher Intellect Vintage Wiki
(Redirected from Monitors)

This article includes a major list of monitors that support Sync-On-Green (SoG) and a minor list of moitors that do not support SoG but are hackable. These monitors should be suitable for use with various Silicon Graphics and Sun Microsystems workstations (with suitable 13W3 adapter) as they utilize SoG.

Hackable Monitors[edit]

  • Eizo FlexScan L567 (Colors are okay, some vertical regions of the displayed image are a little blurred. You probably notice this effect when working in the shell.)

  • Nokia Multigraph 449M ("almost" normal with a gamma-patch applied as suggested by)
