[EBAY] Weird Indigo Thing

What is this? It appears to have a wider DBxWy connector than the regular DB13W3, a DB22W3. It says it's for an Indigo, and is reasonably cheap, but the part number doesn't turn up anything, and I can't find any other pictures of something that might be related to it (having a DB22W3 connector). It's clearly for video, but I don't think the Galileo used DB22W3 and I know for a fact that the Video Creator, which I own despite not owning an Indigo, connects via SCSI or VME, not that weird thing.

It is the breakout box for the multiple channel option for MGRAS (Indigo2 Impact or Octane), called the ICO (Impact Channel Option).
It allows 4 graphics channels from a single Impact board to which it is connected, also adding support for field-sequential video.

See posts here and here.

The item in that auction appears to have been monkeyed with and may not be wired correctly.

BTW, that connector is called a DC25W3.

Kennewick, eh?

Hmm, I wonder if this is another surplused relic from a particular nearby atomic complex. ;)

That thing has been on Ebay for months, I was thinking of bidding on it until I noticed that the shell halves appeared to to have a broken locking tab and wouldn't lock together.

Looks like it was dropped off a table and split along the glue joint. I don't see any indication it's been modified.
If I had the multi-head board I'd totally grab that but I double checked and alas I do not. :(
