HGC is a standard for monitors and video adapters for the IBM PC.

It supports high resolution text mode and one graphics mode. The video adapter was connected to a monochrome (green, light brown or, quite rarely, black and white) monitor.


In text mode, 25 lines of text with 80 characters per line were displayed on the screen. This mode was compatible with the MDA standard. Resolution in graphics mode is 720*348 pixels.
