SWTPC TV Typewriter and MonitorHigh Resolution Photo

The CT-1024 Terminal System kit is a low cost alphanumeric character generator designed to simultaneously display sixteen lines of 32 characters/line on a standard video monitor or slightly modified television set. Together with its low cost options it may be used to simply display messages and data on a TV screen, to communicate with either local or remote computer systems, such as the SWTPC 6800 Computer System or to store and recover data from an audio cassette tape recorder just to mention a few.

The first ads for the CT-1024 appeared in the January 1975 issues of Radio-Electronics and Popular Electronics. The construction articles started in the February issue of Radio-Electronics.

Introduced by Southwest Technical Products Corporation in 1975. The CT-1024 kit cost $275.
