The concept of a "greenscreen"
The concept of a "greenscreen" often refers to any monochrome, usually high-persistance CRT display - I've heard "greenscreen" used by different people in different countries about amber VT220s and even blue-white VT05s. Perhaps we should add a sentence to the Green screen article mentioning other colours, and redirect Amber screen there?
I also apologize for any mistakes I may have made in following protocol on this. I am not a very seasoned wikipedian. -- toresbe 10:32, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
I would think so, seeing as the article is quite literally a copy of green-screen. - eddie
Oh oh...what is all that stuff doing at the end of the article? If it's a submeaning of 'green screen', it should get its own article. -Edlin2 06:01, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
Phosphor coating vs. brightness
The article says:
"Some green screen and amber screen displays were furnished with a particularly full/intense phosphor coating, making the characters very clear and sharply defined (thus easy to read), but generating a somewhat disturbing afterglow-effect [...] The 5151, amongst others, had brightness and contrast controls to allow the user to set their own compromise."
If the brightness was due to the qualities of the phosphor coating, then I don't see how it could be adjusted by the user. Instead, I suspect the brightness was determined by the intensity of the electrons emitted by the catode, which would be adjustable. But I am no expert in this area so I leave it for someone else to change the article.

Sharply defined vs. pixelated
The same paragraph of the article also seems to contrast sharply defined with pixelated. I don't see how characters that are sharply defined could be less pixelated. On the contrary, only a blurred character would be less pixelated.

- There ought to be a disambiguation between green screen (this) and greenscreen (special effects), which is a more common usage of the term. --Drtillberg 03:21, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
... of the Monochrome monitor in the top is photoshoped to be 'infinite', and should be reverted? Additionally the web-browser has an open tab with "Zoo sex tube"... 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
I would like to note that the tidbit about "ghosting" was duplicated in both the "Clarity" section and the "Screen burn" section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 03:37, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
