a high quality digitizer and superimposer for the MSX-2/2+/turboR computer. You
can grab pictures from a videofilm/videocamera/TV or gamesconsole in 32768
colours, superimpose parts of it with animations and titles upon video images,
mix your own creations with these video images, etc. Furthermore you can switch
from MSX 2/2+/turboR screen to GFX9000 screen and vice versea just by one simple
should now see the normal MSX boot-up screen, as was the case when not having a
Video9000 and GFX9000 at all. Because the Video9000 has an integrated RGB
switch, such a device is not necessary anymore.
W ith the
aid for the digitize function of the Video9000 you can `freeze` (moving) images
of the every standard PAL video source, like a VCR, camera, camcorder or TV
receiver(tuner). This digitizing is performed real time (50 pictures per second)
and 32768 colours are used.
is only possible in the full colour bitmap screen modes, i.e. the B1,B2 and B3
S uperimpose is the effect that
a moving or non-moving video images is covered by (parts of) a second image. In
the case of the Video9000, this second images is the graphical screen produced
by the GFX9000. At those places the graphical screen is made trasparent, the
moving video scene is visible. The subtitling of foreign TV films, teh overlaid
scores of a football game in sport programs on TV, but also the weather
broadcasting programs (the maps with clouds and suns are superimposed upon the
background) are examples of superimposing.

any graphical image and/or animation can be superimposed upon the external video
