It looks as if fast video is the shape of things to come as vendors unveil solutions whose high prices are likely to bring benefits to dealers.
Hercules launched a Dynamite 128-bit graphics card at a media show in London last week, at a price of u325 for the 4Mb model - a price performance equation that Tseng Labs senior developer Jack Tseng hailed as a fresh move in the market.
Imago will be the distributor of this card, as well as a host of other products, including Fast Multimedia's video editing system called AV Master, which is a PCI card.
And Mpeg is also the order of the day for the distributor which will sell Video NT Pro for less than u1,000.
According to Ian Vickerage, managing director of Imago, Mpeg multimedia boards normally cost more than u10,000. The board links to World Wide Web sites and therefore has Internet potential too, he said.
Finally, Imago announced that it would resell Nokia monitors and said the unit will switch to a fully functional TV at the press of a button.
The Valuegraph 417TV has built-in speakers, does not require software drivers and can tune to terrestrial as well as non-terrestrial channels. It also supports Teletext.
