Regma UK Ltd, Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, has been appointed European remarketer for Palo Alto, California-based Document Technologies’ Image Processing workstations announced earlier this month, (CI No 1,184). The 80286, true 200 dots per inch version, with 100Mb Winchester drive is available now, and prices start at UKP5,000. The 80386, 400 dots per inch machine will follow soon. At the top end, as a stand alone machine with a raster processor box, 900Mb Toshiba optical disk drive, image scanner and printer, the cost rises to UKP18,500. The Image Processors run the Xtended Mode Operating System – XMOS – a multi-processing, multi-tasking, real-time kernel supporting various library, windowing and network options, and can be hosted by Unix, MS-DOS and DEC VAX/VMS systems. The workstations are aimed at small to medium-sized users who need to store and process large numbers of A4 documents, and can be linked into mainframe systems: in particular Regma is looking at the way that the community charge will increase these needs in government, local authorities and in business.
