The Evans & Sutherland PS 390 is a computer graphics terminal that allows you to create, display, modify, and manipulate complex 2D and 3D wireframe models interactively. It was the first computer graphics system to use the Evans & Sutherland Shadowfax technology, which allowed the user to produce full anti-aliased, calligraphic-quality wireframe models and locally rendered, static shaded models on a raster display. It offered an effective resolution of 4096 x 3456 pixels on a standard colour-raster display. A palette of 16.7 colours were available.
The PS 390 interfaces with a variety of host computers, including the PDP11 or VAX mini.
The PS 390 started at $43,200 when released in 1987.
Manufacturer: Evans and Sutherland
