Having used VT320's and similar for some time, I don't think they are
an answer for you.
Quite honestly, if a modern LCD screen set to black with lighter
coloured text is still too much backlighting, then an serial terminal
isn't going to be any better.
I wonder if a larger screen farther away isn't an idea? e.g. a TV at
10' ? If 80x25 is good enough, then that might be an answer.
