Signal box

2nd June 1995 at 01:00
Vivanco's PCV 1000 allows computer signals to be displayed on a TV screen or recorded on to video tape. The unit converts VGA computer signals into a standard video signal or a high-quality S-video signal. This means that computer users don't have to take the top off their PC and insert special video cards.

The PCV 1000 also has picture adjustment controls, and is compatible with IBM-compatible PCs with a 386 or 486 chip. It costs Pounds 250 (Vivanco 01442 231616).
