    optional video module, X-Calibur (Photo)
  • activates the S-VHS and Composite output connectors
  • provides RGB, S-VHS and Composite inputs on a separate slot cover
    • the RGB input is fake - the signal is converted to NTSC Y/C and then digitized
    • the ProDev digitizing software supports the Composite input only
  • provides up to 800×600 @ 16 bit

    notes
  • a genlock module was developed but never sold
  • the design of Merlin was not finished when the card went into production, leading to many problems
    • compatibility problems with other Zorro cards
    • incompatibility with 060 processors
    • incompatibility with all GVP processor cards
    • reset problems
    • the small registers of the ET4000 chip led to problems with 24 bit screens larger than 680×576 (8 and bit screens have no problems)
