AFAIK they are still available. auction is next saturday; i'll be there and i'll be buying as many PVMs as i can. the monitors and monitor stands may have to wait, but those are much easier to come by. i'll see what i can get.

update on the PVMs:

the auction is this saturday (the 29th). our surplus dept has preview days tuesday and thursday, so i went this morning to check and ensure that the PVMs were all still there. they were. :D i took some pictures of some model numbers and the inputs, and apparently some of these are CVM (commercial video monitors) and don't have the same RGB inputs, but would probably still be nice retro displays. anyway here are some pics:

Sony PVM-20M2MDU. here is a stock picture of the back panel. there are four of these.

Image

Image

Image


Sony PVM-2030. there are two of these.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Sony CVM-1271. i think there were a couple of these. also that first picture may or may not be the same as the CVM-1271 back panel pictured, i kind of haphazardly took the pics since i didn't have a lot of time there today.

Image

Image

Image


Sony PVM-1343MD. this is similar to the one that our user wowbobwow found here.

Image

Image

Image


there might be more there; i didn't take comprehensive pics and i didn't get a chance to get a full count. but i'm going back on thursday to at least plug these in and ensure that they will power on, so i'll try to get more pics and more details then. this is a surplus department, so a lot of stuff gets sent here because it no longer works, but in some cases it's just the result of a department upgrading their systems. these all came from the IU Med School so i'm assuming they just upgraded. all the monitors look nice with no visible burn-in or anything. the 1943MD has some dings along the top, and they all could use a good scrubbing, but overall i'm pretty excited about the idea of being able to pick all of these up at a potentially really, really good price. i will happily pass the savings along to anyone wanting one of these :)

there are also boxes of BNC connectors, couplers, converters, and various other video hardware available that i'm going to be bidding on. in my experience at this auction, most of the things that go quickly and for high prices are the computers, the furniture, and the large metal items that scrappers come and buy, so it's feasible that i could get these uncontested.

also i found this, which appears to have a VGA to BNC converter in it? might be neat/useful.

That wall plate amplifies the VGA signal so that it can travel further. The maximum distance VGA can travel varies based on resolution. Typically it would be connected to a projector at the other end which could be a long distance away.

Good luck at the auction. There are some nice models there!

I always liked the look of those PVM2030's...

Ooh! Extron stuff?? If you can scoop some Extron RGB's on the cheap I'm sure there would be people on here (myself included :wink: )and on the shmups forum that would be interested, especially if they have the original PSU's. It has been discovered that these can be used to convert 480i signals to 240p, useful for playing CAVE ports on the X360 and emulators on the oXbox on CRTs.

No, not monitors. They are converter boxes that say "RGB" on them
Image
They go for $15-$25 on ebay, but don't always have the PSU.
However, if they are cheap enough my advise would be to grab any other "Extron" units you find there. You might snag a rare one you could throw on ebay for a tidy profit :wink:
