E > EACA  > VIDEO GENIE III / EG-3200   


This Eaca was the successor of the Genie I and Genie II. It was compatible with the Tandy TRS-80 Model 1.

The system was supplied with two operating systems, NEWDOS-80 version 2.0 (already available on Genie 1, Genie 2 or TRS-80 Model 1) and CP/M 2.2.
Up to four 5'' or 8'' disk drives (640 KB each) could be connected.

When NEWDOS was loaded, the BASIC used was a RAM version of the TRS-80 Mod.1 ROM BASIC supplied by Microsoft. The video display showed 16 lines of 64 characters and the machine emulated a TRS-80 Model 1.

Under CP/M, the video display showed 25 lines of 80 Characters and the machine emulated a standard CP/M system.

The system featured a built-in real-time clock. Users could add an optional 288 x 640 pixels high-resolution graphics board (which seems to be exactly like the one of the Genie 1), a programmable-character interface or an external 5 MB hard-disk to run MP/M operating system.
