Thanks, though I've never heard of this. Any further details anywhere?

Er, no sorry! I never tried it myself and no longer have the unit or manual.

You can just make it out top/middle of this old photo:

Found an advert:
VCI_AcornUser-Jul84.png
It confirms it connects to Userport and has resolution 220x312 with 64 grey levels, so that gives me something to work with.

Apparently 'full technical details are given in the 27 page user guide'. Any idea where it went?

No idea who it went to sorry, but I'll do some digging.
