I've been an avid collector of all things Corvus for over 20 years. The
crown jewel of my collection is a complete and functional Concept with
display, keyboard and almost every peripheral board ever manufactured.
About 15 years back I ran into a guy at the MIT Flea Market who had a
basement full of Corvus equipment and picked up the entire lot for free.
For lack of storage space, I gave away a Concept, keyboard an monitor in
the early 2000s. At this point, I have no extras of anything.
The monitor is an oddball unit made by Ball. It uses non-standard sync
timing and I've never been able to find any technical information on it.
Mine can be a bit flakey at times and I'm not sure what to do as an
alternative. I've fed the output to a few different converters and
multi-sync monitors, but no joy with anything.
