Exposé Falcon Video Digitizer True Color Video Digitizer for the Falcon030 What Is Exposé? Exposé is an advanced video digitizer for use with the Atari and C-Lab Falcon030 series of computers. It provides a means to “capture” live video images, either as a single frame or a sequence of images, from a camera or VCR in real time, with a resolution of 512x512 in true color. What Does This All Mean? The image from the camera or VCR is automatically processed by the RGB Splitter and divided into three separate, analog signals: red, green and blue (commonly referred to as RGB). The RGB signal is then diverted down an interconnecting cable to Exposé, where it is converted to a digital format that the Falcon can interpret. Exposé then passes the image across the Atari Falcon’s internal expansion bus where it is displayed onscreen at whatever resolution is selected within the software. All this happens in “real-time” – that is, “so quick you won’t notice it’s happening!” Exposé permits this digital image to retain a 16-bitplane true color palette (or in other words, a picture containing 65,536 colors per image), thereby retaining near photographic quality. In addition, the supporting software, APEX Media (sold separately), further boosts this capability to realize even higher resolution in 24 bit color (16,777,216 colors per image). However to realize this resolution and number of colors, realistically this method can only be used to capture still images with the camera mounted on a tripod or with the VCR paused (preferably digital freeze frame). Using Exposé and APEX Media to capture live video on the fly allows a sequence of images to be compiled into an animation, which can then be played back within APEX Media or stored as a FLIC file. FalCAM Picture in Picture (PiP) utility provides on screen, live video images within any GEM program. Watch while you work! FalCAM Tripod Enhanced video capture software for capturing high quality, 24 bit images. Variable exposure and resolution settings, output to JPEG, GIF, TGA, and PPM file formats. Videobox: Amazing Demo! Demonstration program which texturemaps the live digitized image directly onto the surface of a cube which can in turn be spun, rotated and zoomed in real-time! Works With Any Falcon030! The Exposé Video Digitizer hardware is designed for operation on any Falcon030 computer and should be compatible with all hardware modifications or software enhancements. Easy to Install Installation of the hardware into the Falcon is simplicity itself. The Exposé digitizer card plugs onto the internal expansion connector and is connected to the RGB Splitter via an interface cable. Includes 3 Software Utilities Exposé can capture an amazing level of detail! Use with still video shots to get 768 x 576 in true color or capture 16-bit true color animation at 512 x 320! Dollar for dollar, Exposé provides the most powerful video capture on any platform! T E C H N I C A L Card Installs Easily Into Your Falcon030!

FAX Software With STraight FAX!, sending a FAX with your Atari is as easy as point and click! YOU NEED FAX CAPABILITY POINT AND CLICK You might think that FAX is just another fad, but the facts are that FAX has changed the way the world communicates. Now, any printed page can be transmitted anywhere in the world in a matter of seconds. STraight FAX is incredibly easy to use! Just choose the ASCII, First Word, PCX, IMG, GEM or Degas file you wish to send and tell it where you want it to be sent. You can even send the same FAX to multiple destinations! Businesses use FAX to send all kinds of information – purchase orders, invoices, product descriptions, advertisements, technical drawings, legal documents and much, much more! Our TOADFAX service is used to keep customers up to date on products and prices. Anything on paper can be instantly re-created at another location! YOUR ATARI IS THE BEST FAX SOLUTION But even when you’re using the STraight FAX direct to disk drivers for PageStream, Calamus, and GDOS (and other popular applications), STraight FAX is still easy to use. To prove it, we’ll go through the FAX process, step by step, and show you how easy it is to fax a custom document (created in PageStream) with STraight FAX! A typical FAX machine consists of three parts: a modem, a scanner, and a printer. Because you have to buy these components together, FAX machines can cost between a few hundred and a few thousand dollars! Dedicated FAX machines also work best with a dedicated phone line! First, create the document in PageStream, using whatever fonts and graphics you like. Then, load the special STraight FAX direct to disk printer driver. Just choose “print” from the file menu and your document will be converted into a 200 dpi special bitmap graphics FAX file. Now you’re ready to run STraight FAX! HIGHER QUALITY You’ve probably heard people complain about the flimsy thermal paper that standard FAX machines use, or about the low-quality scanners that somehow manage to always feed pages crooked or add extra streaks and lines. Well, with your Atari and a fAX modem, your FAXes will look perfect every time! STraight FAX, the premiere FAX package for the Atari ST,TT and Falcon030 will allow you to use a remote FAX machine as if it were your own high resolution printer! Quickly send ASCII, IMG, Degas, and GEM files at 200 dpi! Or, with our unique FAX to Disk printer drivers, FAX output created by your favorite DTP package, whether it’s AtariWorks, Speedo GDOS based, PageStream, Calamus (Standard/S/SL), Calligrapher, That’s Write, or Timeworks Publisher. We support them all. Receiving incoming FAXes and print them on your own printer. Dot matrix, inkjet, and laser printers are all supported through GDOS. This is truly a plain-paper FAX system! Received FAXes may also be converted into IMG and Degas formats, for use in desktop publishing. Convert them to smooth vector graphics with a program like Avant Vektor. Or, convert them into ASCII text with Migraph’s OCR package! No matter how you use it, one thing is certain: a FAX stored on a computer is more valuable than on flimsy, heat-sensitive paper. Upon loading STraight FAX, the STraight FAX Manager will recall that you have printed a file using one of the special FAX drivers. It will prompt you to send the file you’ve just created. Specify whether you want to add a cover page, and the number or numbers where you’d like the FAX to be sent. Then feel free to leave the room! STraight FAX! takes care of the rest. All the other “print-to-disk” drivers work the same way!
