Our regular edition will appear on Monday at the regular scheduled time. This issue pertains to CES News and only that. Topics on CES are varied and since there really wasn't much to report on from ATARI, we have (as with the COMDEX Winter Report), included with the Atari News, other news from the Electronics mfg'rs. Zmag will return with Issue #56 June 8th. Thanks for reading!! _____________________________________ Xx ATARI PRESS RELEASE June 1, 1987 _____________________________________ In an effort to increase its piece of the US computer market, Atari Corp. is expected sometime this summer to release its first IBM PC compatible, a computer analysts think will be among the lowest-priced clones available. Jerry Brown, recently hired Atari vice president for US operation, has told Paul Freiberger of The San Francisco Examiner, "We operate in the same style as the Japanese. Most companies in corporate America are bloated. Atari operates like a startup." Brown says he'll score in the PC- compatible market as Atari gradually builds momentum for its ST line of products in the United States, but acknowledges he will need more retailers. Colleagues agree. Says President Bruce Davis of Activision, "Their distribution has been a bit fragmented and constrained here in the US. (Atari needs) more places for consumers to buy their computers, whether it's dealers, discount stores or mail order." Freiberger says Atari is expected to spend $10 million on TV ads this year, compared with about $2 million last year. And, while the IBM clone probably will grab the media attention, Brown also told the paper the company will release this summer a low-cost laser printer and a more powerful version of its ST called the Mega ST. The products, packaged together for about $3,000, are expected to court the desktop publishing market. Freiberger comments, "The question is whether these moves will be sufficient to persuade a major retail chain such as ComputerLand or Businessland to carry the Atari line. ... Brown also said Atari could opt to sell the inexpensive ST nationwide in mass-market retail stores." This article ctsy of CompuServes' Online Today (c) 1987 CIS _____________________________________ From the Atari Booth, topped with a real Cessna Airplane, the word was "flying high with Atari". The theme followed through into the exhibit space where Flight Simulator II played from a cartridge on a large screen monitor inside the cockpit of a Cessna. Atari chose to push its game side, and the new computer lines were not being shown. There was a PC Clone getting minimal attention but the absence of MEGA ST's, Laser printers, 1200 baud modems, Blitter enhanced ST's, IBM emulator,and 80 Column Cards, left little doubt that this was to be a game show. Recently appointed Vice President and General Manager of US operations, J. J. (Jerry) Brown confirmed this in his press release of today stating "Atari intends to remain the leader in video game systems and to increase its share of the US personal computer market." While this author's first impressions (as an Atari _Business_ computer user) were quite negative, given that the preceeding release, titled "ATARI ANNOUNCES AGGRESSIVE NEW MARKETING CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT VIDEO GAMES AND PERSONAL COMPUTERS" was simultaneously issued with releases titled "ATARI ANNOUNCES 40 NEW GAMES AND LICENSING AGREEMENTS WITH COMPUTER GAME AND ARCADE COMPANIES" and "ATARI TO BEGIN SHIPMENT OF NEW XE GAME SYSTEM BUNDLED WITH THREE POPULAR GAMES" and given that no "business" computer releases were made, a closer reading of the releases lead to some rather surprising hypotheses of the situation. (See Following Article). The first page and 3/4's of the 3 page advertising campaign announcement is devoted to game machine promotions planned for the balance of this year, including national TV spots starting in September, comic book ads, in store hardware and software demos, and full repackaging of the game machines and XE's. Not until the back pages did we note that 4 TV ads (starting late 3rd quarter and running through New Years) and a substantial portion of the new advertising budget (quadrupled from previous levels) would be devoted to the ST's! (This as opposed to 3 new ads starting in September for the games). The budget also calls for some major print ads to follow and support the TV effort. Now the pessimist will assume that Atari is bent on forgetting the computers in favor of games. The more business oriented will notice that Atari Stock and Sales of ST's have been doing rather well, and that in the introduction of the ST's and MEGA the games assets of the company were nearly step-children. Further, the XE is almost in direct competition with the ST's and likely in an overstocked condition at Atari. The optimist will, therefore, assume that Atari is on a campaign to liquidate the old stock in new boxes, maintain its game market share, and produce the liquidity and corporate energies to actively continue its ST advantage. In assessing Atari's strategies, one must remember that the manpower of this company has sorely lagged it's growth in home computer market share, and that Atari had nothing to do with the conflicting schedules of CES and Comdex this year. With limited manpower and time to produce and to sell product, I am optimistic and feel that Atari made the right decisions in the face of the tough decision forced by The Interface Group's show timing. The balance of this quarter should tell! --Dave Groves (c) 1987 _____________________________________ Xx CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW Press Day (c) 1987 Dawn GOrdon _____________________________________ After arriving in Chicago to unusually hot weather it was time to head out to the day's press conferences. Not thinking clearly due to the humid, muggy air I forgot to wear comfortable shoes, and even before the show has started my feet are a mess!! Anyway, before I even mention the products I saw today I should go into some detail about a number of unique products I saw the other day. ED Beta (for Extended Definition) was a pleasant surprise. Producing a stunning 500 lines of horizontal reolution by utilizing metal tape and moving the luminance carrier frequency up the band, the system is really capable of the best consumer video yet. ED Beta, like Super VHS, uses separate chrominance and luminance (Y/C) outputs, and can play standard Beta tapes. However, it is not compatible in the sense that a tape recording made in the ED Beta mode, will not play back on standard Beta decks. But don't expect to see it very soon, as its introduction has not been set, either here or in Japan. The first stop was Hitachi, where we sat through the usual "doom and gloom" speech regarding the state of affairs in the consumer electronics industry. The company showed a Bang lufsen styled one-piece system. The 50 Watt per channel MXW-50 features a fully-programmable 32-program CD player, digital AM/FM tuner, a dual cassette deck with Dolby Band high-speed dubbing. It will retail for $799 in the early fall. In the TV department Hitachi is showing a direct-view 31-inch set with a flatter tube, PIP and dual tuners (Model CT-3175) for $2299, and a 42-inch rear-projection set with the same features and a brightness of 350 footlamberts for $2799. Two new 50-inch models are also being shown. The next stop was Memtek. Aside from the fact that the company has announced Super VHS tape, Memtek has firmly established itself in the video accessory department with some innovative new products. Memorex is announcing a $129 Dolby Surround Sound decoder. It has a 15 Watt per channel amplifier, three surround modes, an input balance control, and front/rear balance controls. If you're tired of tangled headphone cords, or you don't want your spouse to take you to divorce court for loud TV viewing during the wee hours, then take a look at the Memorex Infrared Cordless Headphone Adaptor. This innovative device consists of an infrared transmitter that can beam any audio source across a room to a special receiver module into which the user can connect any pair of mini-plug equipped headphones! The unit is AC powered, and plugs into a stereo headphone jack. The small, battery-operated receiver can be worn comfortably (via an attached clip) on a belt, or it can be carried in a pocket. It costs $69.95. In addition, Memorex has announced two MTS decoders, and 4 new headphone models. _____________________________________ Xx CES REPORT DAY 1 (c) 1987 by Marc Wielage All Rights Reserved _____________________________________ Saturday, May 30th: the two biggest events we expected to experience at CES were here in full force...namely, S-VHS and DAT. Add to that the new initials CD-V, and you've got a veritable alphabet soup of new consumer electronic innovations that, for all the hoopla, lacked the impact many were expecting. Other manufacturers displaying S-VHS included Hitachi, Mitsubishi, and Panasonic. A few unfortunate manufacturers, including Canon and Kenwood, introduced new higher-end non-Super VHS decks in the $1000-1200 price range, which seemed quite surprising to me. Given that S-VHS should all but obsolete any VCR above $1000, it seems to me that releasing any standard VCR at this price is marketing suicide, as of Summer '87. The people to whom we spoke pooh- poohed this argument, pointing out the vast array of pre-recorded standard VHS softwrare and the huge existing market of people anxious to upgrade their old VHS decks. Still, it just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. (But that figures. This IS the consumer electronics business, after all!) 8mm maintained a very low profile appearance at the show, save for a couple of new models from Sony. One is a transportable, battery-operated deck with multi-program PCM digital audio (ala their other table models), selling for under $1000, and the other was a new Pro 8mm camcorder with a higher-density CCD pickup. Also seen on the top floor of the sprawling McCormick Hall: improved large-screen direct view tube monitors from a half-dozen manufacturers, including JVC, Hitachi, Panasonic, Sanyo, Sharp, and Toshiba. While some were prototypes, most indicated to me that while the overall quality of consumer monitors is improving remarkably in resolution, they still have far to go in the all-important areas of colorimetry and black level definition. Toshiba's new Digital FST 31" monitors are a good case in point. Most of my associates at the show felt that Toshiba's non- interlaced scanning is a good enough idea, but that the overall picture quality still leaves a lot to be desired -- tough criticism, given the set's $3000+ price. On the other hand, this wasn't a problem at all with the new Anniversary series of audio components shown at the Yamaha audio booth: they included a $7000 CD player, a $3000 phono cartridge head amp, a $7000 true digital pre-amp, and a $5000 amplifier. I noted that this is one of the few set-ups in the world that would allow you to copy digitally from a CD to a DAT recorder -- except, of course, for those few CD's with the anti-copying flag in the bits. _____________________________________ Xx VCR REPORT (c) 1987 by Marc Wielage _____________________________________ NEW VCR's In my last report, I touched on Sony's new 8mm introductions, which included several new prototypes designed to show new applications of 8mm video technology for the future. Most interesting of them all was Sony's "Personal Video" concept, which revolves around a combined mini -8mm VCR and an LCD color TV, in a pocket-sized package about the size of a paperback book. Sony also had a fascinating prototype, the EV-DT1, which combined an 8mm VCR with a more down-to-earth 5" color Trinton portable set in a single cabinet -- perfect for desktop use by 8mm fans with lots of extra cash (!). Other 8mm intros from Sony included the EV-S1 portable 8mm recorder. Also shown was Sony's CCD-V9 "Handycam Pro,". As for S-VHS, VIDEO REVIEW scored a major coup in providing the first published review in the United States with their July issue, which was released at the show. VR's specs confirmed most of the VHS camp's claims, in the review of JVC's S-7000 VCR, though the magazine confusingly noted that this machine did not meet the 60 dB video S/N ratio claimed by the manufacturer. This appeared to be a major faux pax, since no S/N specs have actually been released thus far, and all the information we've been given has indicated that S-VHS does virtually nothing to reduce the noise in the image. VR's review was also made on a prototype machine, which some industry observers felt was a bit misleading, though this was clearly mentioned in the review. Zenith showed their own version of JVC's S-VHS model, known as the VRD-700, which also features full 4-system HQ recording (for standard VHS), address search, on-screen programming, MTS, special effects, and the usual features you'd expect to see in any top VCR. Mitsubishi's HS-423 is this firm's new S-VHS offering, with somewhat less features than JVC's 7000, including a 100-channel MTS tuner and 99 index points. Amusingly, Mitsubishi claims in their press kit that with their new machine, "the EP mode provides the exact same picture quality as the SP mode," implying that the SP mode isn't needed, even for high-quality applications! Probably the most interesting non- S-VHS machines we saw at the show were Akai's new "Quick Start" series, which includes four models using a new loading system. This transport allows much faster response from "stop" to "play," essentially loading the tape partially around the drum during all wind modes, mirroring Beta's U-Load technique (though not exactly). The top of Akai's mid-priced line is the VS-M930, which features Hi-Fi, HQ, digital effects, 9 index and 15 address-search cue points, along with a 167-channel MTS tuner, all for about $850. Unfortunately, an Akai spokesman admitted that they didn't yet have a "Quick Start" S-VHS model available, and agreed with one on-looker's opinion that their new transport was a "videophile feature in a non-videophile product." Next year, maybe. _____________________________________ Xx AUDIO REPORT _____________________________________ AUDIO Over the weekend, we found tons and tons of fascinating new audio products, though once again, I felt that many of them reflected the ongoing yen/dollar economic battlefield, offering far less value than in recent years. Happily, the manufacturers seem to be doing the best they can to try to try to offset this trend, which varying results. In particular, I felt that cassette decks and receivers seem to be suffering from this problem, though CD players and the new DAT decks appear to be as solid as ever...for the moment. Sony's gotten back into high-end audio with their new ES Digital TA-E77ESD preamp, which features a digital interface (for connection to pure-digital CD players and DAT decks), isolated audio/video wiring (for insuring minimum interference between audio and video components), and even a Y/C jack, for connecting an S-VHS or ED Beta deck. Also in the A/V area, DBX showcased the $1500 CX-1 preamp, which, like the Sony, also has 9 inputs (though none are pure digital). Infinity made four significant introductions in their fine speaker line: at the tip-top is the Series V version of their world-renowned Infinity Reference System, priced at a wallet-busting $45,000. While we didn't get a chance to audition this one at CES, our impressions of previous incarnations were very positive -- and at that price, they should be! Moving a little bit lower on the price latter are Infinity's new Delta, Gamma, and Beta speakers, which sell for $4,500, $5500, and $10,000, respectively, a pair. The top Beta model boasts four 12" woofers, two bass-midrange drivers, one EMIM mid-range driver, two EMIT tweeters, and one SEMIT (small EMIT) upper-treble driver. Our brief audition of this speaker was fairly positive, and we look forward to taking a closer listen in the near future. In the new CD arena, one model that impressed us was NEC's new 5300, which uses a unique 18-bit digital -to-analogue convertor, combined with 4-times oversampling, to achieve some impressive specs -- and decent sound, besides. _____________________________________ Xx MORE CES HIGHLIGHTS _____________________________________ NAD has finally announced an August shipping date for its Monitor line series of components. The flagship receiver model 7600 will cost $1,600, a very bold move from a company that, in the past, has prided itself on affordable products. In car audio Blaupunkt had some interesting stuff. The company's PSA (Parametric Sound Amplifier) features user-installable modules for 83 different cars. The modules are designed to balance the environment to exact interior specs for each car interior. The PSA amp is a 4 channel (X 20 watts) unit, and its priced at $169.95. Each module sells for $39.95. According to some reviewers the idea worked in some floor cars, and in others it didn't. Blaupunkt also showed a unique idea for upscale cars. Called the soundboard, the unit is a rear deck panel replacement with a built-in three-way component speaker system. The drivers consist of an 8-inch woofer, 4.5-inch midrange and a 1-inch fabric dome tweeter. Prices for these will range from $799 to $1,099. Probably the most interesting product the company had was its MT 9000 cellular phone. The unit is full-powered and weighs a mere 6 pounds or so. Speaking of cellular technology, Oki has the smallest and lightest unit I've ever seen. Dubbed the CDL 300A, the thing weighs a scant 26.1 ounces with battery pack and antenna assembly. It looks like a large cordless model and features a lighted dial, LCD display, last number recall, mute, electronic scratchpad memory, low battery warning, call in absence indicator, and will have enough juice for a 10 hour standby. While we are on telephones I really should mention the Plantronics LightSet ($249.95). This device is a hands-free cordless model that incorporates an ear-mounted appliance with an attached microphone pickup. The rest of the electronics (keypad, controls etc.) are housed in small cigarette-sized box that clips on your belt. The two are connected via a thin wire, and communicate with a base-station/charger for a 1000 foot range. In other cordless news Panasonic has finally broken Southwestern Bell's hold on the two-line market, and Panasonic lowered the price considerably. At only $179.95 model KX-T3880 is almost half the price of its competition. Shure raised the price on one of its popular products. I guess the HTS-5000 Surround Sound Decoder was just too popular, and now it's gonna cost you an extra $250. The new price is $750. However, if you think that's a lot to spend check out the HTS-5200. This $1000 unit adds Acra Vector circuitry for "professional quality" decoding, a true digital time delay, wireless remote control, motorized volume controls, 10 dB improvement in signal to noise, and an optional remote extender for concealed installations. There's a new player in the add-on PIP department. Rabbit Systems, the people who redefined the term "multiplying", have a new unit called the Double-Play. Unlike the MultiVision 3.1, this unit features a single tuner. It's designed for use with an external tuner, such as one from a VCR. The inset picture is 1/8 screen size and it can be moved into each corner of the main screen. This $229 unit includes infrared remote control. Sony has demonstrated full-sized LaserDisc players. The MDP-9 is an unusual affair with dual disc drawers--one for CDs and the other for 8 and 12-inch discs. Both assemblies are independent of each other, so you can play "The Right Stuff" on LV and listen to a Tina Turner CD at the same time. Nice idea, but no mention of CD-V capability. The other player is a more standard unit, and like the MDP-9 it features a flourescent time readout on the front panel. Sony did show a prototype combi-player that would play all formats including CD-V, but it's too early to tell if it, or any of the others will ever be introduced. Finally, in the computer arena we have the new NEC MultiSpeed screen with a super-twist backlit display. The backlighting can be turned on or off depending on the lighting conditions present, and it looks quite good. The NEC MultiSpeed laptop with the new backlit display will sell for $2,395 or so. But if you can carry a little more weight take a look at the new Sharp PC-7200. This AC-powered, IBM PC compatible is a very small transportable with a 20 MB hard disk, illuminated super-twist display, 80286 processor running at 10 MHz, switchable speed down to 8 and 6 MHz, a socket for an 80287 numeric coprocessor, 640K, single built-in expansion slot, 5-1/4-inch drive, 102/103 full stroke keys with 12 function keys and a separate numeric keypad, serial, parallel, color and monochrome display ports, and a weight of only 21 pounds. Copyright 1987 Dawn Gordon _____________________________________ Xx Atari RT CES Highlights _____________________________________ [CES Gang] DARLAH> There were a number of 3rd party vendors in the Atari booth with some new products. Gordon can tell you about Michtron/ Microdeal offerings (Airball looked pretty slick!). EA was showing Music Construction Set for the ST, written by Intersect. Looked pretty nice. Mindscape had some games like Plutos (much...expanded beyond the bootleg version showing up on BBSs) and a 3-D pool game. MidiMaze from Hybrid Arts is finally done... and is being copy protected -- should ship in 2 weeks. They added lots of new features like observer modes, smart and done drones, teams, and more -- great game! One small company had a strange package called Easel that let you put any DEGAS picture in place of the desktop background, tends to slow down the system overall, though. Timeworks had a collection of utilities in the form of a desk accessories called Partner ST -- a Thesauras is included. Broderbund announced Printshop, Karateka, and a combined version of Art Director with Film Director (yay!) -- they have committed to attending the Santa Clara Atari show. Looks like they're backing us in a big way. Microprose is finishing up Gunship and one of their other games (maybe F-15??) Atari has shipped a few of the Arrakis educational programs like Biology, Algebra, and some others, aimed at middle school students. Psygnosis has a hot new game called Barbarian-- a fully graphic fantasy role-playing game -- point at an object and get a window with a list of things to do or describe. Eidersoft had a sound digitizer called Pro Sound Designer. A company called the Robot Factory had a really neat gimmick -- a fuzzy doll robot that was hooked up to the ST through MIDI and was playing the keyboard in time with a piano roll program from QRS. Its mouth moved in time with the voice of the announcer through a microphone -- this one got filmed by MTV News. There were some other ST things too that were talked about, we'll have to post these to the ST RT as we dig through our notes. On the game side, We had the new XE Game System on display along with a finished version of Flight Simulator II on a 256K ROM cart (includes the program and the scenery disk). There were 8 or 10 new titles for both the 7800 and the 2600. One-on-One for the 7800 is done and is *great* (I am undefeated in the last year, it must be great!) and Desert Falcon is also done and into production. Even the new 2600 games were pretty impressive. And Activision and Epyx announced that they're doing their own titles for the 2600, and Atari Explorer and ANALOG will begin video game coverage on a limited basis. Atari will have their own booth at NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) late in June, making us the first computer manufacturer to ever exhibit there. We want to OWN the MIDI market. That's about it for now, lets open the floor to chaos now. <[MichTron] GORDON> before we do that we will let John Symes from Microdeal tell you about all the new stuff Microdeal showed at CES. <MICROD> i saw a 3d game player from sega today....pretty good, We were demoing Airball, a marble madness type game but with rooms nearly 300 rooms and after 4days of the show we are all still playing you cannot put this down...shipping june 8th we also had replay our sound digitiser this really does digitize great and has code for gfa as well we also showed digi drum the drum kit sequencer. MichTron was showing a demo version of a new GFA Product called GFA Object. Its similar to Antic's Cad 3D but much easier to use and you can take the pictures an use them in BASIC, Vector and GFa DRAFT PLUS. _____________________________________ Xx CES WINTER 87 _____________________________________ Atari Announces New Products at CES ----------------------------------- Las Vegas, NV, Jan. 8 -- In a dramatic press conference held this morning at the Consumer Electronics Show, spokesmen for the Atari Corporation introduced a panoply of new products for 1987. Highlights included three significant new additions to Atari's flagship ST line of high-performance personal computers, a revolutionary low-cost laser printer, and an IBM PC-compatible personal computer of radically new design. The new ST computers, dubbed "Mega STs 1, 2, and 4" incorporate one, two, and four megabytes of RAM, respectively. Encased in a newly- designed system unit with integral 800K microfloppy drive and detachable, ergonomic keyboard, the new machines are visibly different from Atari's current 520ST and 1040ST models, while remaining 100% compatible with them. Additional enhancements to the Mega machines include a battery-backed realtime clock, internal mounting space for an additional circuit board, and full external routing of the 68000 bus, making their architecture "wide open" for further enhancements. "We took all our customer's suggestions on how we could improve the ST, and incorporated them in this series," said Neil Harris, Atari's Director of Marketing Communications. Delivery of the new machines, via computer specialty stores, is expected to begin shortly at a price-point of "about $1000." The new Atari laser printer, shown in a prototype version, will match or exceed the performance of present laser printer systems while costing only about half as much -- about $1500. Atari has accomplished this enormous cost-saving by exploiting the power inherent in their ST computers. Coupled with a 2- or 4-megabyte Mega ST, the laser printer will form the output stage of a desktop publishing system costing less than $3000 total. Atari's new IBM PC-compatible machine, the Atari PC, is a radical departure from present "PC clone" designs, offering top-of-the-line compatibility and features at a record-breaking price of under $500. Housed in a system unit similar to the Mega ST with integral 5-1/4" floppy drive and detachable XT-style keyboard, the PC/XT compatible Atari PC sports 512K RAM standard (expandable to 640K on the motherboard), an additional 256K of graphics-dedicated RAM, a custom graphics chip providing enhanced EGA, CGA, IBM Monochrome, and Hercules graphics capabilities, and a Microsoft compatible mouse. It operates at the IBM standard 4.77 Mhz or at a high-speed 8 Mhz "turbo mode," and provides for the addition of an 8087 math coprocessor at either speed. A monochrome monitor designed for use with the Atari PC was also announced. Costing under $200, the monitor supports all Atari PC graphics modes, including the high- resolution, multicolor EGA mode in grey-scale. Shipments of the Atari PC will begin in March. The new products -- perceived by some as the fulfillment of promises made over a year ago by Atari CEO Jack Tramiel -- are universally hailed as milestones for the Atari Corporation. One informed onlooker commented: "It's as if Atari, in one fell swoop, had stepped to the leading edge in three markets: high-performance workstations, desktop publishing systems, and the lucrative PC- compatible game. They're going to be the company to watch in 1987." With somewhat less fanfare, Atari also announced a new slimline 20- megabyte Winchester drive for its ST line, incorporating an extra port for daisy-chaining with other DMA- compatible peripherals, such as the new laser printer. At the same time, Atari announced price reductions on existing ST models. A 520ST CPU will now be available for under $300 retail, a 1040ST with monochrome monitor for around $899, and a 1040ST with color monitor for a 1500. _____________________________________ ZMAGAZINE ISSUE 55 SPECIAL EDITION _____________________________________ ATARI is a registered trademark of Atari Corporation.
