TRUEVISION NU VISTA+ TURNS MAC INTO TV PRODUCTION BOX

By CBR Staff Writer

Indianapolis-based Truevision Inc announced a whole string of advanced video products yesterday, leading off with Nu Vista+ video board, claimed to deliver advanced video production and true colour display capabilities to the Apple Macintosh II. NuVista+ is claimed to be the only single-slot video graphic board for the Macintosh to offer video production features such as digital chroma keying and digital linear keying. It integrates composite NTSC or PAL and S-Video Super VHS, ED Beta encoder-decoder on board at no additional charge where previously, the Truevision Vidi/O Box, a separate product costing $1,000 was needed. The NuVista enables users to capture and display broadcast-quality video in real time, create photorealistic graphics, combine and manipulate video and graphic images, and output to a VCR, monitor or film recorder. It supports 8, 16 and 32-bits per pixel and conforms to Apple’s model for 32-bit Colour QuickDraw. Other new features include advanced genlock, programmable capture and display resolutions, snap-on memory module expansion, and standard NuVista features, including video overlay, hardware zoom and pan, programmable 50MHz TI34010 32-bit graphics co-processor and Apple 32-bit QuickDraw compatibility. Available in August, the NTSC version of NuVista+ costs $3,000 with 1Mb of video RAM, and a PAL version will be available later. Additional memory up to 4Mb total costs $600 per megabyte with the board, $750 per megabyte subsequently.
