Understandably keen to exploit the Compact Disk technology it pioneered in all sectors of its business, Philips Telecommunications and Data Systems Division integrated CD-Read Only Memory drives into its personal computer range earlier this year. Now it is looking towards multi-user systems, and in conjunction with its one- to five-user P3400 box and the SCO Xenix operating system, has implemented an extended file management system for Xenix, enabling users to retrieve data from a CD-ROM from any of the attached workstations. The P3400 is a Intel-based system aimed at small businesses, and can incorporate up to five satellite workstations connected to the central processor. The CD-ROM is connected to the central micro as a standard peripheral. Philips says it now offers hardware, software and support for CD-ROM installations, as well as mastering and distributing the disks, which it does in conjunction with Du Pont Optical Co in Hanover, West Germany.
