This is a Wintel PCI card right? Weren't these things popular back when they first started putting DVDs into PCs (97-98 )? Helped to smooth out playback on the older CPUs? Not sure but i remember something along those lines. Also, remember some ISA cards for DOS back in '93 to help accelerate MPEG1 (was used for some video games, Hollywood card maybe?). i'd keep it around for kicks.

Is that a Vela Research card?

http://www.vela.com

If so try to get drivers from them. Did it come in an SGI? The only Vela product I've ever seen that works under IRIX is their SCSI-attached MPEG2 decoders.

From the doc it appears to be included in the Video Server Toolkit, and likely is not much use without that.

Yeah in December 99 I got a Sigma Design Hollywood Magic PCI card to assist with the DVD decoding as my Pentium 233 MMX/Permedia 2/Voodoo2 couldn't play it back smoothly. It was a great card for being able to do Dolby Digital out via the S/PIDF and has S-Video out as well so I could drive my parents CRT TVs :)

Of course it a good thing that we can play back video these days with no additional cards, but i do miss those types of hardware, specialized DSPs, higher-end audio cards and so forth. Those were the days LOL..
