Hi Folks,

I made a video a while back about a long forgotten product...maybe you vintage computer enthusiasts might enjoy.

So this was basically the Apple Video system but with an extra hardware Codec card and Avid Cinema instead of Avid Videoshop

I've seen it several months ago. Beautiful. It really shows what is good about Apple - creating something that, while not necessary cutting edge, is both useful and user friendly.

This video was one of the reasons I have bought recently a Power Macintosh 6500/275 Creative Studio Edition - fully equipped with all the video hardware (even the HDD and CD-ROM are original units). Unfortunately I still have to get the Software because the hard drive was wiped.

Correct. The Apple TV/Video System has a port inside that allows it todirectly connect to a video device. So the AVID card actually did the compression and capture, as well as the output. The AVID card was neat because it had a video out that was content specific and not just a 640x480 display output like the Presentation System. Only AVID Cinema could usethe card. It was really a great product.
