 Bulletin Board System

         Scala IC3

Tightrope Media Systems

CastNet System by Scala
    and Alpha Video

We use Adobe Premiere
and a Matrox RT2500 for
our bulletin board system.
   With Music Choice
  supplied by our cable
     company for our

   Chameleon for our
 channel; Scala for other

 SCALA Infochannel. It's
pretty limited in what it can

    We use a PC with
 powerpoint hooked up to
 a scan converter. Much
  more inexpensive than
   buying an integrated
system. Plus, it allows for
Tightrope Media Systems,
  Carousel & Cablecast.
  (just installed 10 days
  ago!. We were using
 Amiga 1000 and Amiga
     1200 until then!)


 We use Matrox Infonet.

 Planning on Inscriber's

       Frame Rate

 Scala Info channel I200

just left the Amiga world -
   now - TargetVision's
   Enterprise program

 We do not run a bulletin
board system except for 2
    hours/week of job
 postings - currently on a
 VideoGizmo - we will be
phasing out this system in
  We use Powerpoint.

Currently use MagicBox,
    but plan to buy
 TargetVision this year.
