John Carlsen's C128 80-column Video Digital-to-Analog Converter was released at CommVEx last weekend. Along with Jason Wright who released his CGA-to-RGB adapter, John's device was shown to the crowd and to the videocamera. Expect their videotaped talk to be posted soon! John's C128 VGA adapter was sold at a CommVEx price of $40 US, discounted from its on-line price of $50. It works in conjunction with the Gonbes GBS-8220 video converter which is not included in the price but is available from eBay with prices as low as $18.59 currently.

John's C128 VGA adapter webpage has been updated with the latest photos - http://www.bit-c128.com . Contact John at the e-mail link there.

Leaving Las Vegas today,

John's C128 VGA adapter webpage has been updated with the latest photos - http://www.bit-c128.com .
After an inquiry from a FCUG member, I looked up John's website and found it to be updated! The website address has been subtly changed to

http://www.bit-c-128.com/

He now has categorized the site into multiple pages - Home, Uses, How to Buy, Quick Start Guide, History, and Contact. Interestingly, under History, he notes that the BIT-C-128 Video DAC is now in its second production run after having strong Christmas sales.

He even gives CommVEx a plug,
