Digi-View Gold framegrabber

The Digiview is a colour digitizer that plugs into the parallel port of the Amiga and digitizes colour images in three pass using a colour filter wheel and a videocamera. Color images are captured using a color separation process which produces near photographic quality images on your Amiga screen. A color filter wheel (included with Digi- View Gold) is mounted in front of the video camera lens. Three pictures are taken, one through each of the red, green, and blue filters, during which time the subject must be stationary. The Digi-View 4.0 software then combines the separate color images into a lifelike, full color display in any of the Amiga's screen resolution modes.

Many of these were actually molded (possibly assembled as well) in an employee's dorm room.
