NeXTStation Color


NeXTstation Color computers combined near-photographic quality color and an object-oriented operating and development environment in an easy-to-use, professional color workstation.

In addition to the same powerful core technologies found in all NeXTstation computers, the 25-megahertz NeXTstation Color and 33 megahertz NeXTstation Turbo Color could also display 4,096 colors simultaneously on NeXT's MegaPixel Color Displays. The ability to display true color images maked these systems ideal for publishing, presentations, graphic design, computer-aided design, data analysis, and virtually all other applications where color display capabilities are required. NeXTstation Color computers—which could be configured with 16 to 128 MB of memory—took advantage of the color support offered in Display PostScript, which featured the capability of real-time software dithering allowing NeXTstation Color computers to display 32-bit-per-pixel images in 16 bits with near-photographic quality.

The technical advances featured in the NeXTstation Color product line, combined with an operating and development environment unequalled in the computer industry, added up to a highly capable system.
