Hi video editing guru folks, I’ve got an old computer PCI editing card my company was about to throw out, and I’m trying to figure out what it is. It’s not useful to me other than giving me something to do as an old hardware detective. I’m wondering if someone here will know something about this card.
From what I’ve researched so far, it seems to be a video editing product mad by Digital Processing Systems, Inc. circa 1996. It looks a lot like the evolution of the Personal Animation Recorder for the Amiga (see here: http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/par).
A good image of what I’ve got is at this eBay item page:
Has a SCSI controller, some betacam jumpers, Ratheon chips and the same LSI chips as the Personal Animation Recorder (JPEG Coder, DCT Processor, CS RBC). It’s made up of two circuit boards, both full-length PCI cards (only one has a PCI slot and they’re connected via one 40 pin and 26 pin connectors).
Anyone know specifically what the heck I’ve got on my hands?
