Default Old monitor, Nixdorf BA 88 manual

Old monitor, Nixdorf BA 88 manual

I'm looking for a manual for this monitor. It's at least 15 years old. Thought I'd try here. There was something about it's settings and use with game consoles

When I Google, all I get are the topics you have posted on other sites. When I search their main website all I get is POS equipment.

After drilling through about 50 pages on Google, I'm came across a forum that says the NIXDORF BA 88 is the same as the NEC MultiSynch II.

I got some information on the NEC MultiSynch II from Vintage Computer Forums.

I have a SIEMENS NIXDORF PCD-4H which came with the monitor. The on board graphics is an Ergo VGA III. I don't know what frequency it's outputting but it works a DELL flat screen LCD as well as the BA 88.

Not sure where you're trying to go with this, but anything that can output VGA res @ 60hz can run any modern LCD.

As for your original console thing, the Multisync 2 CRT can display current console image, but you will have to play at 480i res and leave it set there in the settings.

Trying to get it running with a view to selling. Only draw back would be the German armour plating of the case It's heavy.
