The Amiga is poised for a big comeback under the tutelage of Escom AG, and Visual Information Services Corp is licensing Amiga Technologies GmbH’s hardware and software technology to use in a television and set-top box combination. The Chicago, Illinois company was established specifically to develop proprietary and Amiga-based set-top boxes and has former engineering staff from Commodore International Ltd among its development team. Amiga is developing a set-top box based around the Amiga operating system and a new and modified version of the basic A1200 – the first Amiga out under the Escom banner. Full details of the product are not yet available but Amiga said that the set-top box will be available next September and will come equipped with a CD-ROM drive, floppy drive, printer port and serial modem connection or a built in modem. Another US company, Omnibox Inc, is said to be licensing the Amiga technology to develop its own set-top box devices.
