4501 CRT Vector Display & Analog Raster Scan Converter
New Addition 01.12.01
1978 Tektronix Type 4501 Vector Scan Converter & Display Unit
Vintage: late 1970s? Here is a true weird one! As far as I can tell, by simply looking at it, this is an analog storage CRT based, monochrome X-Y-Z vector to RS-170 raster scan converter. What does that mean? Think of a high speed Etch-A-Sketch with a video output! It can also display in real time or freeze and store an image for some longer length of time. Looks fully operational, though I have yet to test it.
