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.

        "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

         Thanks for asking.
