This morning, chatting with Gunnar, we talked about my discovery of a very good and cheap video solution for every Amiga (and perfect for Vampire DIGITAL-VIDEO output) and asked me to share those infos on this forum
  This Telefunken have composite and Scart inputs, as well as a vga and 2 Hdmi inputs
  Sorry for the bad lights and bad english
  On our Italian Vampire forum my friend Alessio shared other videos about this tv (in Italian)

Thanks for sharing

looks very similar to my Samsung B2230HD 2 hdmi VGA and Scart.

cheap monitors usually have low display lag (input-lag) and no additional processing on video or sound.

I used to have an awful plasma monitor with very high display lag, which made me feel as if using an emulator and not real hardware.

Can it do 1920x1080 at 25 Hz ?

Honestly I haven't tried (AmigaOS @1080p on 22 inches will be usable? mmm.. maybe I'll try just for fun)

Hi Stefano, is this screen still readily available anywhere?  I'm struggling to find any stock online.  Also, in the video regarding the PAL output... are you using a normal RGB to SCART lead or RGB to VGA?

Simple rgb to scart cable.
  About availability of this exact model I don't know. I bought a couple of them on an electronic shop of my city when I discover that rgb output was better than any other scaler/scandoubler I tried before. Newer telefunken models should have the same Vestel board inside (if they have scart input), so results should be the same.. Obviously I can be sure only about my specific model..

Well, yeah - there's that. 1080p on 22" would be certainly brutal in the desktop :)

I use 1080p on my primary monitor TV which is 49". And that's barely at the threshold of useablity for me. Anything smaller than that and my head would just explode.

I now don't understand how I could do 1280x1024 on a 19" (at double distance than my TV now) 20 years ago...

Games, if there were any, could be real sharp in that res on 22"...
