Wild Vision Hawk V9 MKII

The Wild Vision Hawk V9 MkII is a Real Time Colour Video Digitiser for use with Acorn Archimedes computers. It is designed to capture high quality colour sprites for use in RISC OS applications. It can produce both live colour displays on the desktop and high quality sprites which can be dragged to other applications.

The product consists of a single-width expansion card (podule), which contains all the digitiser hardware, together with a RISC OS application, !FastGrab (on disc), which provides software for the capture and processing of images.

The digitiser accepts any composite PAL video input signal (e.g. video camera or recorder) via a BNC connector. The signal is converted to RGB and digitised in real time as 3 five bit per pixel data streams, giving a 512 x 256 picture.
