We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

TeleVideo, Inc. of San Jose, California is a private company specializing in the development and manufacturing of computer terminals. Founded in 1975, TeleVideo established itself as a leading supplier in the video display terminal industry. The company pioneered a new generation of computer terminals with the introduction of its first “smart” terminals, based on the Intel microprocessor, at a time when dumb terminals were the industry standard.

In the early 1990’s, the company capitalized on emerging trends in multimedia and produced a complete line of leading-edge 2D and 3D graphic accelerators, 3D soundcards and multimedia upgrade kits. TeleVideo’s move into multimedia allowed the company to pioneer a second market that became a building block for their video display products, launched in 1996.

In 1996, TeleVideo expanded its line of video display products with a new family of high-end 15”, 17”, 19” and 21” CRT monitors. The monitors provided high resolutions and high-quality performance that created a new standard for CRT display in the business market.
