I can't help with the terminals themselves. However, I distinctly remember
using the plasma-screen terminals in the 1976 timeframe. These terminals
were about 3'x2'x3' in size and sported a pnumatically acutuated
microfiche reader.

IIRC, the CDC non-microfiche version of the terminal (which included
a touch-screen) appeared around 1979.
