High-end video manufacturer Abekas has brought out a Mac-compatible digital disk recorder. This lets you record and play video footage, use it in Mac applications, and output both graphics and videos at broadcast TV quality. The Diskus, in its basic configuration, stores 30 seconds of component digital video, making it more suitable for serious animation work rather than desktop video applications. It comes with a VTR control program and a driver for Photoshop. Prices start at Ãº13 000, but it is the only device of broadcast quality. Contact Abekas on 0734 585 421.
