    Default pdp8/e onverting Zuse Z64 Graphomat papertape to TEK graphic

    Hello,

    we had this on display at VCFB last weekend in Berlin, Germany. Some Zuse Z64 Graphomat papertapes were read from a program on the pdp8/e, converting it and sending it to a Tektronix 4010 Emulation terminal. I did no picture or film on the festival, but if you are interested in the making of:

    Thanks for sharing this - it seems like VCF-Berlin gets better and better. You can't have too many PDP-8's!

    Nice! I updated the infobox for the Wyse WY-370 based on the manual.

    I was surprised to see that terminal only supporting Tek 401x graphics, since it is color. I would have expected it to also support Tek 410x or Tek 420x graphics, but I guess they didn't want to be bothered with writing all the firmware to support the extra graphic commands.
