we're on the next phase of our paper we're presenting at a
conference soon and are hoping to collect a listing of 1960s era mainframes
and minis that had CRT displays available for them. We're obviously already
aware of the various DEC models released in the 60s that had them, but
we're looking for other brands now.
Just about all of them.
There were certainly graphics units made by the mainframe makers
themselves, but there were also quite a lot of 3rd part graphics units
that could be connected to them (Hazeltine, Adage, etc.).
Are we talking about "essential for operation" displays or "you could
have one if you had the money". As I mentioned before, there were
systems where the CRT display was an intrinsic part of the system--if
you bought the system, you bought the display.
If we're talking about third-party vendors, there were a ton of them.
Digigraphics being one of the earliest.
