Article #7 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: ae258 Subject: VIDEO INTERFACE FOR 1040ST? Date: Sun Jul 30 08:52:32 1989 I HAVE HEARD THAT THERE IS A SHAREWARE PROGRAM FROM WEST GERMANY WHICH WILL ALLOW ME TO OUTPUT TO A VIDEO TAPE DECK MY GRAPHICS FROM MY ATARI 1040ST AND ALSO ALLOW ME TO DOWNLOAD SINGLE FRAMES FROM A VIDEO PLAYER TO MY 1040ST? HAVE YOU HEARD OR SEEN SUCH A PROGRAM? THANKS. ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Sun Dec 6 10:52:07 1987 ** "Shareware", by its nature, is software only. On the ST, the things you are asking about have to be hardware; there are NO VIDEO IN/OUT jacks on your computer. Nor is there any mention of these functions in recent newsletters from Germany. However, there are some American products you might be interested in: Computereyes, a popular digitizer for the 8-bit Ataries is now available for the ST. There is a box available for any ST with a TV output that taps into a composite video line to give standard video out. Note that most 1040ST's don't have the TV out so this probably won't help you. I have not yet heard of any standard video out devices for the 1040ST's. Good luck in your search. Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking.
