Laser Master: High Resolution Printing way back when (Win 3.0 to WFW 3.11)

The GS1280 used a coax type video cable with a resistor in the cable. The controller used 2m of RAM from the printer controller for rasterizing video display and was connected to the LX6 by a 50pin ribbon cable. The Monitor was made by Sampo. Both the printer controller and the outline font monitor controller were manufactured in two styles: 8bit ISA for standard PC Clones, MCA for IBM PS/2 Micro Channel Architecture machines. These were Full Length ISA cards. Yes they were long enough to require resting on the adjacent ISA Case Slot Support Cage.

Date: March 20, 2001

Subject:  Merger between Teco Electric & Machinery Co., Ltd. and Sampo Corporation. The merged company will operate under a new name "Teco-Sampo Co. Ltd." ("Teco-Sampo"). Don't expect any help from Sampo.
