EAGLE COMPUTERS INC.
Eagle

Eagle Computers were originally manufactured by AVL (Audio Visual Labs) as a controller for audio-video projectors. The original models, the Eagle I and II, had AV ports on the back.

The computers proved so popular that the AV ports were removed, and standard RS-232 and Centronics ports added. The computer division was spun off and Eagle Computers, Inc. was created.

The complete line of CP/M computers they made was: Eagle I, II, III, IV, and V. All were the same except for the storage. The Eagle I had a single single-sided (SS) double-density (DD) 96-tpi 5.25" floppy-disk drive, the Eagle II had two of these. The Eagle III had two double-sided (DS) DD 96-tpi 5.25" FDD. The Eagle IV had one of these and a 10-Mb hard disk, and the Eagle V had one of these and a 32-Mb hard disk.

The Is and Vs were not sold in large numbers, because of the small storage capacity of the former, and the high capacity and higher price of the latter. Who needed 32 Mb?

I used an Eagle III around 1984 - the software company I worked for (Eldorado Software) got it to use for porting our products (spreadsheet utilities and templates) to C/PM. We also used it to convert our spreadsheet templates to UltraCalc and SuperCalc (they were all originally written for VisiCalc on the Apple II.) Since we were trying to do a lot of cross-platform development, we had the Eagle, an Apple II, an original IBM PC (no hard drive), a TRS-80, a Commodore 64, Atari 400 and a Basis 80 (Apple clone) all in our workshop!

I was working as an intern at the Hayden Planetarium in NYC when in 1982 we installed the first computer automation system in the theater, using dual Eagle II computers. They were nice machines for the time. I learned a lot about assembly language programming playing with them!
