Hey Dandy,

Are you planning to run the signal via the track or RF? I notice that they have composite output so any device that can digitise a composit signal will be able to display the image... As for the Amiga, I doubt the Amiga has the bandwidth to do live video...

The bandwidth depends entirely on the resolution you want. If you want 640x480, yes, you'd struggle on a classic. OS4 machines could do it though. TV tuner cards lower the resolution internally though so you could probably get 320x240 ok....

I have been to cologne several times to work.  Love the city, found from talking to people that most people are like you in that they live no where near cologne but work there.



Well, I was born in Magdeburg (former GDR - aka East Germany) and my parents escaped with me from there back in 1959 when I was just two.
I grew up in Cologne and moved to Waldbröl when I married in 1990.
Since 1998 I have a job in Cologne and so I rented a small flat here to avoid daily commuting.
All the best,

Dandy

Hi bloodline,

I haven't decided this yet. What do you think would be better?

That's good to know, thanks.

I think that might depend on the model.

Currently I have an Amiga4000D in Micronik BigTower with CyberstormPPC and Mediator busboard with Voodoo4, Terratec512i digital and 10/100 mBit NIC, as well as a DENEB in Zorro III slot.

My main system currently is OS 3.9/WarpOS 16.1 plus an experimental OS 4.0 classic setup.
I'm planning to add a ZORram 256, to get an OS 4.x supported NIC and OS 4.1 classic, after I've been told that I can use the DENEB in USB 2.0 highspeed mode with OS 4.x classic as well.

And  I'm really tempted to get an A1 X1k and as I already mentioned, it might come in very handy for the planned project.
All the best,

Dandy

All you need for that setup is a VLabMotion. It compresses in motion JPEG with various compression rates. I bought one recently pretty cheaply on eBay but still haven't took the time to test it. These were suposed to be able to do video editing so that quality is not that bad. I don't remember if all the version of it had SVideo in but ver. 1.3 (the one I got) has SVideo in and out :) ImageFX supports it directly I think. Pretty nice to have a top of the line classic system, though an NG Amiga would probably do the job better, but remember there are no drivers for capture cards AFAIK, nor is there video editing software for NG Amigas.
