Canopus, bekend van de Spectra 2500 TNT en Pure3D Voodoo kaarten, stapt uit de video business. Het nieuws was al langer bekend en werd gisteren door Canopus bevestigd:
The Spectra 2500, Pure 3D and Pure 3D II line of graphics cards are no longer in production. We have made a special arrangement with Alienware to sell our Spectra 3200 graphics card in the US. The VideoPort 600, the 5.25" drivebay video-in for the Spectra 2500/3200 will be available through the Canopus Factory Store beginning in April.
Due to the very short life cycles for graphics boards and the consolidation of the graphics chip and board industry, Canopus has decided to concentrate on our line of Digital Video Editing products. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you and we assure you that if you have purchased any graphics product from us WE WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT YOU with technical support and the terms of our 3 year warranty! Driver updates will be provided over our web site for as long as the chip vendor updates their own drivers. In the future, Canopus may produce graphics cards again if the right chip comes along. Until then we will focus our efforts on our line of Digital Video non-linear editing products.
