Default 15Khz LCD monitor

Would this monitor work on an Amiga?

15Khz LCD Display

I've never seen LCD displays that support that scan rate.

It looks like it would work, but the info from that page isn't very extensive. There might be issues getting it connected to the Amiga, depending on what plugs are available other than those 5 BNC connectors (which would make it good for Toaster work, though).

The price is probably astronomical, judging from other 15KHz LCDs I've found. They don't even list it.

You can use any LCD display you want. Just make sure that it is VGA compatible and that you have a flicker fixer / scan-doubler installed in your Amiga. Why do you guys insist on making things harder then they have to be?! :roll:

@MATT_H

They have a wip that goes to a standard 15 pin VGA connector. I agree they would probably be expensive. It's the kind of thing I'd watch for on ebay. Also, working in industry I might be lucky enough to come across one someday.

@BoingBoss

I stay up late at night thinking of ways to do things "The Hard Way". Oh, And I'm bored at work... :-D

There are tons of LCD monitors out there that do 15 khz

http://www.superwarehouse.com/CTX_PV710M_17_LCD_Monitor/PV710M/p/119719

is one.

I know Samsung makes one as well, not to mention there are tons of LCD TV's out now 17" and bigger that of course do 15khz.


How compatible is the Amiga RGB signal to the Component inputs on TV's these days?

The problem is that most of the 15Mhz is done thru composite not vga... Found this out when I was looking for one. Most of the Vga freq. start @ 31 Mhz

Just get 2 identical Amiga models and plug 'm in the same video input of your monitor, e voila, instant doubled signal




(Disclaimer, just in case, do not try this.. )

No they are not. I have 2 Commodore A2320 cards and 1 ICD Flicker Free Video 2 board. I would not own an Amiga computer that does not have some kind of flicker fixer and scan doubler in it. The Amiga 3000 has one built in. :-D

It isn't. Component TVs use Y, Pr, Pb instead of R, G, B. There are converters (transcoders) but decent ones cost big $$ and would probably degrade the signal somewhat.

Some pricy plasma displays still have RGB support - such as the ViewSonic VPW450HD. I am not aware of any tube sets with RGB support. It's either YPrPb or the up-and-coming DVI-HDTV standard (fully digital).
