Command + F "Video Toaster". No matches.


The Amiga was used even by some TV networks solely due to the availability of the Video Toaster, as comparable hardware costs were way higher. That was usually paired with Lightwave 3D.

If nothing else, I appreciate the Amiga for its role in helping Babylon 5 get made.

The article only goes to 1986, but the Video Toaster wasn't released until 1990. The article doesn't even get to the Amiga 500 or 2000.
