Weren't there accessories,
peripherals, and/or third party displays
for just about anything?
If you are talking 1960's I think the real answer is "not much". I
notice he mentions DEC but the DEC VT05 was 1970 and that was their
first standalone display. The IBM3270 was 1971. Cheap third party
display like the ADM3a was 1975 or so. I did use IBM 2260 screen on MTS
on the 360/67 at Newcastle, England but I must say it was horrid. These
were available in the 1960s. The Tek Storage terminals were also 1970's.
The CDC 6000 and 7000 series machine had the CRT as an integral part of
the machine--the operator's console was a (vector, character and
graphical) CRT or pair of them in the case of the DD60. That even held
with the CDC STAR, which had a CRT display on the MCU station.
