Actually, this is what I'm doing now - thinking is it worth to make a "non linear amplifier" for the real machine.
The idea is (speaking only(!) for 'direct' mix mode which is the default after boot)
to rise the brightness of lower values so the image is more visible like this:
It's a difficult choice.
On one hand, having a 75% brightness on a solo machine is good enough because it allows doing RGB split to get full 8 color picture without any constraint by just having each machine displaying one of the component, and I guess you can use the last one to add some additional brightness here and there if needed.
On the other hand, it means we can't have dark colors, so can't really make a gradient going from black to white, or a nice sunset.
Generally speaking, having a 100% intensity on one machine, 50% with two machines, 25% with three machines and 12% with four machines (working on the same component) would be easier to make pictures with than the 75% / 87% / 93% / 96% given by the "non linear amplifier" (assuming I understood the example!)
In short: It's easier to work with shadow than with light
