Should just be plain old TV-compatible monochrome video.

Does it have a 15-pin connector for the video? If so, it may want a
VR201 tube, the same used with the Pro. That's still only plain old
video but the connector also carries power and keyboard input. The
pinouts would be in the Pro tech manual, which is online at bitsavers.
