It has two nonstandard features:

   * High scan rates, leading to 640x400 resolution
   * 25-pin "D" connector instead of a 9-pin

I know we used some Aydin 19-inch monitors on M24s back
in 1986, but which models (and what scan rates) I can't

I did write some code to toggle a bit in the M24 and
cause the screen to degauss, though. One of the Olivetti's
enhanced features.
