Historical Origin And Design Inspiration
Picture yourself in front of a 76- inch color monitor"¯shoes off, feet up, remote control in hand. But this is not just any remote control. This is a special remote unit that controls all of the components in your entertainment/computing system.
You push the TV button and bring up World News Tonight on the monitor: Peter Jennings reports that the stock market has soared to new highs. As he fades into a commercial, you decide to call Dow Jones News/Retrieval to see how your own stocks did. But first, you push the compact disc button to fill the room with a Beethoven symphony so real that you wonder where the orchestra is hiding. Then you press the VID2 key to put the computer video on the screen. You reach for the PCjr's wireless keyboard and start the appropriate communications program; then you press TV to return to the news while the computer retrieves the quotes.
At the next break, you display the Dow Jones results onscreen with the VID2 key. After the newscast, you press the VCR STOP, REWIND, and PLAY keys to view the "M*A*S*H" rerun you've been taping from an independent station. But first, you check the progress of the cassette tape you've been recording from an FM stereo broadcast.
A Intelligent audio/video integrates numerous components into a single system commanded from a single remote control. The heart of the system is a 36-inch stereo monitor/ receiver. All you need is a monitor and components such as AM/FM receiver/ amplifier, a compact audio disc player, a cassette tape recorder, two phonographs, a graphic equalizer, and several models of stereo VHS video recorders. And more cabinets to house them.
Plus connections so you can also connect other components, including home computers. The wireless keyboard can be connected in three ways. Like most home computers and videogame machines and can be hooked up to a TV's antenna terminals with an RF modulator. And you need more cabinets.
Composite video is as clear as the RGB mode, and it has an added advantage: You can record its output with a video cassette recorder. This means you can run programs on the PCjr and record the results on the VCR, which is perfect for putting titles on your home videos. You can also dub stereo audio from a compact disc player, the AM/FM tuner, the cassette recorder, or the phonograph. And you need more cabinet space.
