Graphics Unlimited


Full length Nubus card


Two multifunction 9 pin D-sub sockets: 1 input, 1 output (not labelled) These sockets are very versatile and tables are included in the manual showing the connections for the various functions



Pre-installed (but removal/replacement when checking appearance was very straightforward).


Pre-installed in common with most Mac software, the installation seems to be easy enough.

Middle settings for contrast and saturation (64 out of 128) were used, along with brightness (32/128).

At 256 colours the on-screen image appeared slightly granular - possibly due to the type of palette optimisation/reduction.

Images were grabbed from both composite and RGB sources.
