MultiMediaMaker

I have a little problem with MultimediaMaker.
I can’t use it with a self made Genlock. The display is like ..

    / // // / / / // / / /
   / // // / / / // / / /
  / // // / / / // / / /
 / // // / / / // / / /

instead of a stable display
 | | ||  ||  || ||  | | |
 | | ||  ||  || ||  | | |
 | | ||  ||  || ||  | | |
 | | ||  ||  || ||  | | |

what shall I do ( I don’t want to buy a commercial one !) to remove this problem ?

Thanks for help.

Please reply to NewsGroup or Email

Photo-CD on CDTV/A570?

I read in the Amiga Format (UK) Xmas issue that it is
possible (if rather tricky) to use Photo-CD on the CDTV/A570.

No more details were given.

Can anyone confirm that it is possible, and if so how?

TIA

please post, and if possible mail

Does anyone have the DCTV converter and can explain to me what it is used
for,, what kind of inputs & outputs it has.

The ads for this beast are to say the least vague!

Call for participation: Ping

                      CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                              PING

PING –
– a global communication experiment.
– an organism in the networks reachable via World Wide Web
– a visual landscape made of films, images, sounds, and objects
– an map projected on an environment
– a series on TV broadcasted worldwide

WHAT IT IS:  
Intersecting Internet and the worldwide broadcasting TV-station
Deutsche Welle TV, Ping is a visual landscape in the networks and a
series on TV, generated by the users of Internet. By creating a
landscape, Ping is an experiment to make global discussions visible via
TV.

HOW YOU DO:  
You position still images(*), movies(*), 3D-models(*) or audio tracks(*)
via the world wide web on a 2D map (see WHERE YOU GO). Ping then
translates this binary information and merges these objects into a 3D
landscape. Seen from a point in space that is far away, Ping looks
like a moving organism whose shape, movement and growth is generated by
the Users. The Viewer of Ping on TV is led through data- and
informationspace by the eye-agent, who takes a walk in the
network-landscape deciding which images are broadcasted on TV. The eye-
agent moves according to what is new on the landscape. Controlled by
the users who position the objects on the landscape, it travels on the
landscape and through the films, sees newly positioned objects and
hears their sounds and voices.

WHERE YOU GO:
Ping’s Internet interface is located in the world wide web at URL

        http://www.artcom.de/ping/mapper

Best access is with xmosaic 2.*.
The TV broadcast on Deutsche Welle TV is scheduled for the end of may.

(*)                   CALL FOR CONTRIBUTION

                 CONTEST ON MR. AND MRS. INTERNET

  Win the worldwide beauty-contest by contributing your own, your
  favorite politician’s or your barbie-doll’s image, movie, object sound
  or text to Ping. Viewers and Users of Ping will decide by voting on
  whose image is the most beautiful. Contributions will be collected
  and a second call will be made for the beauty-voting.

Need info on Video Wall

Dear Netters,

  I am looking for an easy way to display the computer’s output to
multiple television screens.  Each TV will display a *portion* of the
full screen.  For example, I will need to output from the computer to 64
TVs (8 TV  by   8 TV)  The first row of 8 TVs will make up the top 1/8th
of the entire display, etc. so each TV will display 1/64th of the
screen.. This could vary.. Later I might need only 36 TVs (6 by 6), etc.
This will be for a presentation and the TVs will probably be 21" ones..
Oh, and we’re on PAL here.. :)  The computer could be either an Amiga or
PC or even a Mac.  What card/hardware are there in the market to do this
"Video Wall" type of presentation?  Also, the contact place, price,
computer/platform supported, etc.  THANKS A MILLION

Regards,

Suraj Gulrajani
