LIVE! WILL CAPTURE VIDEO, TV SIGNAL ON AMIGA, IIGS

By CBR Staff Writer

The future of the fun-and-games end of the computer market undoubtedly lies with animated video, and the hottest-sounding property yet is set for April launch by a company called A Squared, location unknown, according to Computer Insider newsletter. Live! is described as a set of boards for Apple’s new IIGS and the Commodore Amiga home computers that is designed to capture a complete TV or video signal sequence and store it on disk for re-running, manipulation and analysis on the microcomputer. The concept has enormous potential in the entertainment, leisure and graphic arts fields: a fairly trivial suggested application is videoing and analysing your golf swing, but the concept also has enormous scope for creating part live, part animated sequences for movies, and for perfecting TV commercials without the need for endless expensive retakes.
