unknown brand, a separate peripheral from the main unit
- Some sort of side piece for the unit, not shown in the photos on the
net, that is driven by either an XT or an Apple ][. I believe this
is some sort of console processor, but its unclear.
I bet this is a RIP (Raster Image Processor) to generate film to burn
plates for the for the press. In the early 80s most of them were
hardware RIPs and were standalone boxes.
That would make sense; the Dutch site mentioned earlier in this thread
says that a RIP peripheral was available.
I think you got a real nice graphics processor.
Me too :-).
I got in touch with the contact person listed at the Dutch museum
site; he says they have no technical documentation on their system, so
while it is assembled, it isn't functioning. I may be able to help
them get their system back on-line if the documentation with this
system provides the necessary information.
